Nevan's tubes

Everything went well. We had to be there at 7 am (UGH!) And of course, my well laid plans to keep him up a little later last night so that he could eat and drink late didn't work! He was asleep at 8 pm! And he woke at 2 am BEGGING for a drink--he was up for an hour and a half! I didn't go back to sleep until after 4 am and the alarm was set for 15 til 6! They didn't take him back for the actual surgery until about 10 after 8. While they had him, I walked back to the other end of the hospital to move my car closer to the day surgery and call Mark--literally 8 minutes after they took him, they were paging me to come back to talk to the doc!!! 15 minutes after that they paged again for me to come be with N. He was crying, of course, but I think it was really because he wanted the pulse-oximeter off his finger! He whined until we could take it off--which was about 30 minutes later--then he wanted to get down and play! He's sitting in my lap now--asleep. Doc said he drained fluid out of each ear but that everything went just as it should. I'm just glad it's over! I came home and took a 2 hour nap!

Today's a full moon--ya think I've got a chance to have this baby today???? Probably not!

Glad the surgery went well! Hope you are able to get some rest! Keeping my fingers crossed that this baby decides to make his appearance soon for you! :)
