Tubes in ears...check!

I am so glad that today is done! For most of Brayden's life, he has been suffering from almost constant ear infections. This past one was the final straw. His pediatrician sent us to the ENT for a consult. He told us what we already knew....Brayden needed tubes in his ears. So, today was the day. We woke up early and headed to the hospital. After waiting for almost 2 hours, they finally took him back. We got to walk with him almost all the way back, but then the nurse had to take him. Brayden did great and went right to him. We went back to the room and waited. About 15 minutes later, the doctor came back in and said that surgery went great. He got all the infection cleaned out and tubes in. A few minutes later they brought Brayden back to us. It felt so good to have him back in my arms, although he was crying uncontrollably. They said that the anesthisia would do that to him. He cried for about 25 minutes and then we were finally able to calm him down with some teddy grahams and jello. After an hour or so, we were free to go home. I am happy to report that he is back to his happy, go-lucky self.

Look at all the buttons on this bed!

And more buttons on the other side!!

Now we are waiting for Brayden to get back. Sean decided to take a rest on the bed.

He is back from the surgery. Poor baby...
