New Tubes

Today Wyatt had to be at the hospital at 6:45am for surgery to have new tubes put in his ears, and to have his adenoids taken out. He was a happy camper all morning. He blew me kisses as they took him down the hall to the surgery room around 8am. The surgery itself was only about 20 minutes. They brought him back to me around 9:15am. It took him a little while to wake up, but when he did he didn't even cry (which most little kids do). He sat on my lap for awhile and drank some apple juice. The only thing at that time that was bothering him was the I.V. in his hand, which they shortly took out after he drank some juice. After 30 minutes in recovery it was time to head home. When was got home he was not tired and bouncing off the walls, but by 11:30 I got him to take a nap. He's doing fine with the exception of his throat hurting (they had to put a breathing tube down his throat), and being clumsy (walking into walls, and falling off the chair) because they said his equilibrium is off right now. The nurse told him he was her star patient and did awesome.
