Tubes

Ben had his ear tubes put in this morning. The morning went better than I'd expected considering we couldn't give him anything to eat or drink when he woke up. I took him to the surgical center and my husband met me there after dropping Lucy off at school. Afterward we all went home and then I came to work while my husband stayed home with a grumpy baby. He was still pretty unhappy even after water and juice at the surgical center, followed by a 40 minute nap, and then a bottle at home and some crackers. He'd be unhappy and then take a drink or a bite of cracker and suddenly smile at me and then just as quickly start crying again. But I recently talked to my husband who reports that after a big lunch and a nap Ben was back to his usual happy self. My only regret is that I didn't take the camera with me this morning. He looked so darn cute in his little hospital gown!

I didn't even now there were hospital gowns that small! It sounds like it went fairly well, all things considered. Hope it makes a big difference!

My baby got tubes the same day (last friday). And was the exact same way as your baby.
I did get pics. I'll be posting them soon.

My baby suddenly started sleeping through the night (yay) but has had a fever and still moments of crankyness. I'm wondering if it had anything to do with the tubes? or if he's still sick. How has your little one been since?
