Tubes are in!!

We took Chris to the out-patient surgery center this morning at 7am. He was cranky and hungry, but seemed OK once we got settled in. The doctor came in, as did the anesthesiologist, and explained everything - the procedure would be quick and he'd be cranky as all get-out after he wakes up because he'd be very disoriented.

The surgery took 9 minutes. NINE!!! WOW - talk about fast!! It took longer to get him under and back awake than it did to insert tubes!! He was supremely cranky for about 2 hours after, but fell asleep and woke up as my good ole' happy boy again!!

A boy who can now hear and will hopefully never have the pain of an ear infection again!!!
