My Boys and Tubes

My day started at 4:15 am. Jim and I got up and prepared to have the boys ready to leave for the hospital at 5:00 am. Today is the day we have been looking forward to for six weeks. Both of our boys were scheduled to have tubes put in their ears at 8:00, and of course that means we had to be at the hospital at 6:00 am. Could someone please tell me why you have to be there 2 hours prior to your scheduled surgery?

Both of the boy’s surgery went very well. We dreaded the nurses taking them to the OR but they both walked away with the nurse and neither one of them cried. It was so great! Here is a picture of them walking around in their gowns. Aren’t they adorable!

This is Jake playing with his mask while his is waiting to go back.

I must admit recovery was the hardest part. The nurses called me back for Judd and he was very confused and upset. He didn’t stop crying until he got cup of ice.

Jim went to get Jake and he was crying and complaining. They both have minor infections so they are on one more round of antibiotics. Hopefully, this will be the last for a while. Even with the difficult recovery I must admit the whole experience wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be after talking to people.

They slept for a few hours when we got home and after lunch they were running around like “my boys.”

  1. I’m glad things went well. This was the best thing I did for Alex. The worst part was explaining to a toddler why they can’t eat or drink before surgery:) This is will make your life so much easier. They look so sweet in their gowns.


  2. Thanks for sharing this experience so quickly. I know the church has been praying and happy this went so well. Hopefully this will make life better for Jake and Judd AND ya’ll too.
