Sorry it has been so long since I last posted! Things are as crazy as ever around here. The biggest news of all is that Wesley's tubes surgery went great! I hope that this makes a huge difference in his life (and all of ours, too) and that he will be happier and healthier.

Thursday morning we had to be downtown to Methodist by 5:30 a.m. My dad stayed with us this past week to help while Randy had some late nights and to take care of Quinn while we got Wes to the hospital. We got checked in and had to wait about 2 hours for him to have the surgery. He was not as crabby as I thought he would be. We were not allowed to give him anything to eat or drink beforehand.

being silly!!

The surgery itself takes literally minutes. Randy and I had enough time to go to the waiting room, get coffee/pop, sit down and take a drink, and then it was time to go to post-op to get set up and wait for Wes! They wanted us there when he was coming out of anesthesia so that we could snuggle him right away. They gave me a warm blanket and a sippy cup of juice and brought our little man in to us. He was so calm! When Quinn had this surgery, she was a howling mess afterwards. Both Randy and I got lots of good snuggles. Once the nurse determined that Wes's vitals were ok, we got to check out and go home. We were home before 9:00!


So far, so good. Wes gets drops in his ears twice a day for now. He was really crabby tonight so he went to bed super early, but I hope that he was just tired and that nothing is medically wrong. I am glad to have this surgery behind us. Here is to a healthy 2013!
