Brody Update

So in the midst of all of the craziness that we have going on around here, I totally forgot to blog about Brody's surgery. Bad mom...I know, I know. However, here we go.

Last Wednesday, Brody was finally able to have his ear tubes put in. I cannot believe that it was exactly 9 months to the day since his other surgery (he was 1 month old and had a pyloric stenosis repair).He was originally scheduled for the week before that, but I ended up in the hospital for low blood counts due to chemo so we had to postpone his surgery. Anyways, we took him in at 6:30 that morning and did all of the paperwork and pre-op stuff. At 7:27 they took him back to the OR and at 7:39 Dr Brandon was back out telling us that all went well. We were back on the road home at 8:00. Brody did perfectly! He was super mad from the anesthetic gas that they used to put him to sleep, but after he breathed all of that off, he was back to his normal self.

So here we are a week later and I took him in today for his post-op visit. Everything is looking great. Tubes are in place and there is no more fluid behind his eardrum. He's happy and healthy! Here's to hoping that ear infections are a thing of his past!

glad to hear he's doing well.
The mad part reminded me of the kid who went to the dentist video. Have you seen it? If not go to Youtube and search "David After Dentist" too cute!
Hope you are doing well!
