Surgery Day

Our little man had his first [and I am claiming last!] surgery today: tubes in his ears. He has had chronic ear infections for the last six months and tubes seemed to be the answer. He was a complete champ throughout the entire process and we pray this is the start to a new, healthy era!

And can I just say that I noticed a DRASTIC change by noon today? His mood, his disposition, his energy level, his communication. I mean, complete, drastic change. Unbelievable.

Thank you Jesus for providing us with these kind of resources.

And well done little Max. You did good!

What a champ you are Max, and I can't wait to hear YOU tell me all about it!!!!

Thank you Lord for the doctors, nurses, and resources to help Max. Now please help his Mommy and Daddy as they enjoy the new, TALKATIVE Max!

You might be a slightly spastic aunt when you have to enlarge the picture b/c you don't recognize the jammies your nephew is wearing (I don' remember those?) ....only to realize he is still at the surgery center and therefore wearing his surgery gown.

My. Bad.

All 3 of my boys had had to have tubes and every time I noticed they turned into completely different kids after their ears were better.

Good luck with the tubes and here's to hopefully no more ear infections.

It is amazing. Ryan went from 3 words to 20 in 2 weeks...no kidding!! The pic of Max is adorable!! So glad you've already seen a change!!
