Grant's 2nd Surgery

Grant needed to have tubes in both ears replaced and he also needed his adenoids removed.  He had to fast from the night before so that morning as I was rushing to get us both out the door I was unable to get breakfast for myself so I ended up fasting with him, which did not work well given my pregnant condition.  I was feeling very icky but comforted knowing that it wouldn't be for long as his surgery was at 9:30.  Unfortunately he was not admitted to surgery until 12:30.  It was a very long time for both of us to wait while being hungry, but Grant was a trouper and did not complain one bit.  He had a great time playing with all the fun toys and viewing the many fun murals all over the place.  I really do feel so blessed to be so close to Primary Children's Medical Center. 

 Where's Grant? :) hahaha
 My sweet boy. :(  It was so sad to have to leave him alone for surgery, but the staff of course did great with him.  Grant came out of his anesthetic prematurely and I was not there to comfort him right away, that was traumatic for him then I arrived and he must have felt much better because he happily slept for another 2 hours, while I wished I could be sleeping with him, or eating something more than a few crackers. :)
The following week was rough, he was very grumpy and uncomfortable, but know a little over a month latter he is doing wonderfully well!  And he continues to hear and speak normally!  Yeah!
