And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Post-Op continued

As is the case with most of life, waiting for something is the hardest part. The actual surgery was quick- over probably in less than 10 minutes, but the time leading up to it was the worst part of the whole experience. Yes there were the months and months of ear infections that led up to the need for tubes and that was awful. But the hospital experience itself wasn't too pleasant either. We had to wake Ben up at 5:45 and load him in the car. We walked in his room and he was curled in a little ball in the corner of his crib. Not only did he have to wake up early, but he wasn't allowed to eat or drink. We got to Hopkins and waited....filled out paperwork.....and waited- got called back to pre-op and waited. You get the point....long morning. But praise the Lord everything seems to have gone well and Ben is a seemingly happy camper.

Call me crazy- but I think he is hearing better than he was before. Maybe not hearing better but at least hearing differently. After he woke from his nap the day of the surgery he was a non-stop chatterbox all day. He ran around the house verbalizing and playing with all the loudest toys he could find. Does it make me a bad parent that I can't understand 90% of what he says? Hope not.

Best wishes to Ben. He's darling. I'm glad he's feeling better. One of my children had a similar experience; he was ten months old and when he came home from the hospital, he crawled for the first time -- happy and zoomed all over.
