Good to GO!!!

Well, this morning went well- sorry I am just updating!!! Sleep came first. I went to bed at 10:30 and woke up at 2 am to leave at 3am. We checked in at 6 am and surgery was 10 mins before 8. We were leaving the hospital before 9 am and back at home at 11:15. We then ate lunch, sent Grana & Poppie on their way and we ALL crashed!! Wheww I need another nap just thinking about it!!
Like that shiner??? That was from his brother's birthday party- read tomorrow for that post!!

He did good- for C!! He is the one who doesn't like ANYONE to bother him, touch him or look at him- he is getting better. But this morning he was up at 4 am and from then on he was grouchy!! Poor nurses and staff.....he kept on grunting at them like get away!!
Then the clouds opened up and angels sang... the angel nurse came in with "goofy juice" they give to kids to settle them down for surgery. I kindly told her before she tried to give it to him
"he is a spitter- stand back!" She then handed the syringe to me and said you do it then. We ended up holding him down and all getting it on us- except B he was holding his feet- YES it took three adults to hold him down to give him medicine- at home I can usually 'hog tie' him between my legs and blow into his face so much he doesn't even know what hit him!!
A few minutes after the juice was in effect- you could tell he the lights were on but no one was home. B started to tickle him and he just had this crazy giggle like some old drunk man!! Oh it was so funny. He went from growling at all the nurses to smiling and laughing!!
Then just a few minutes they took him away and he was done and we were in recovery with him and we were on the road!! It was great- so fast and so precise too!!
I will have to say when we were on the way home I sleep off and on- I am so not truck driver material- and plus as this picture shows he caught a cat nap between nurses and doctors coming in!! He would so kill me if he knew I put this on here.....he does not read it- so what he doesn't know won't kill him!!
Plus that is pay backs for all the wild driving to Little Rock and me hitting my head on the window a couple times on the way home- due to my nodding off......I caught myself knocking my head back and forth a few times and he was laughing at me!! You know kinda like the 80 year old man who sits in church and his head bobs back and forth until the preacher says something loud- then he jumps!! That was me!!
C was just in lala land watching CARS in the back seat- never made a peep- so I moved up to the front for more leg room!!
I am going to post a time line and story about tubes soon- I think it will help any one who is unsure about getting tubes in there kids ears- I put it off on T for 6 mo. just because I was scared!! It is really not bad at all- and then the end results are even better- He will be talking clearer in NO time!
I can remember the doctor telling me about T- he said the reason he talks funny is because it is like he hears you from underwater??? Is that not crazy??? So I think this is the way C is too.
I do need to record him saying a few things now- because it will change overnight!! This morning when I put him in the car seat it was 3 am remember- he said in a groggy voice " Uh Oh...George" I then gave him his brown little monkey with at missing eye....and he then told me in the sweetest softest voice I will NEVER forget it "Gank U my momma" That is how he says Thank You!!!
I love they way they talk when they are just learning and as much as I hate to repeat it to them it is just too sweet- They grow out of it way too soon. First person he asked for when we were in recovery was " where's broder"
Thank You all for you Prayers for our precious little gift from God above!! Thank you so much to my mom & dad who watched our other gift and spoiled him.....and cleaned my whole house, did all my laundry and did a few "handy man" jobs around the house while we were gone this morning!! You are Priceless!!
