Tubes

Well Auklin finally got his tubes~ last time he was supposed to get them he got sick and they couldn't do it. It went really well, the tubes are sooo tiny they are like the tip of a ball point pen. They make a small incision in the ear drum and put the tube through there to help drain the fluid in his ears.  It take about 10 min or less to do and he is under the whole time with a gas mask. The only hard part is when they wake up- They feel really weird from the anesthesia and they dont know how to react to how they feel so they just cry and cry. It was so sad to see him like that, not knowing what was going on. Kasey made him feel the most comforted! He loves his dada- after about maybe 30 min of him crying we decided to go home and put him in bed, when we got home he was pretty happy and normalish, he lasted a few min and then we could tell he was tired so he went down for a few hours and when he woke up he was normal as could be- He is talking so much he just jabbers all day- Eventually the tubes will fall out all by themselves and we wont even know- pretty cool! So there ya have it- Tubes...

It was so sad seeing how cute and happy he was before. He had no idea what he was in for! :( it's great they can do simple things to help him feel better. We felt so helpless trying to console him. So glad it is over and he's doing great. Those jabbers are so fun!!
