Our Cup Is Full

So sorry I haven't posted in almost a week. THANK YOU so much for all of your thoughts, prayers and emails. Baby C's surgery was yesterday and while there were some surprises, he was so strong and is feeling so much better.

We thought it would be a simple surgery, tubes in, ear infections gone, but it seems Baby C isn't clumsy, he has had severe vertigo his entire life. Our amazing surgeon drained his ears, nose and sinuses and Baby C's little body had 8oz of let's just say gunk in them. To make matters worse, the gunk was highly infected so it made coming out of the anesthesia a little rough.

I wish I would have had my camera, but I never think about taking them to the hospital for surgeries, only to capture photos of a sweet new baby! When he came to, he shook his head and gave us the biggest smile. He hasn't stopped moving sense. He is no longer clumsy, just on the move. Poor thing has had that stuff in his head his entire life. They now think the same gunk just kept getting reinfected.

We have some smelly (really smelly) ear drops and some extra strength pain meds for the next 2 days, but otherwise are back to a new pain free normal for our little guy.

I always go into nesting, cooking overdrive before surgery. I did it with Mini K and I did the same thing this past weekend. I also don't really sleep so I have been emailing so many of you some of my middle of the night finds. I promise to share all with you over the next few days.

But now, everyone but Mr. G is asleep, and he has promised to keep the yelling at Game 7 of the Stanley Cup to a low voice so I am going to sleep!

Wow! So crazy. I had a slight earache the other day and can't imagine being a little one and not being able to talk and tell someone how much it hurt. So glad it went well. xo

So glad he's doing well! I'm a stress-nester, too. It does tend to be a productive way to deal with such things...
