Tubes on the Tenth - Mission Complete!

Our sweet boy got his tubes placed this morning and he did great! There were no tears whatsoever (from Drew or his Mama). I really liked the surgery center - everyone was super friendly. Our ENT said that he had tons of thick fluid in both ears, so I was thankful to get all of that gunk out of there. Hopefully our boy will be happy and talking very soon. :)

I took a few pictures with my phone while we were waiting. It helped to pass the time... ;)

He wasn't too sure about the purple gown...
I assured him that he was man enough to pull that look off. Ha!

I have never been so thankful for his pacifier and "nanny" (security blanket)!
Instant comfort...

He kept looking at his ID bracelet.

In the Recovery Room with groggy post-anesthesia eyes.
Finally getting something to drink. He guzzled his water down!

The nurses bragged all over Drew and went on and on about how sweet he was. That was music to my Mama ears. :) I'm so thankful to have that all behind us!

Yay, for Drew!!! What a relief, indeed. I am so happy for all of you. I know your sweet boy will be more like himself now, with all of those ear problems behind him.

So glad for no tears...from either of you. You guys are both very brave!

Hope you all are resting up, from your super early day!
