    I was so relieved that my son didnt need tubes after a couple of infections.
    Needless to say, i would have been a blubbering mess had he had to go under.
    We are all thinking about you and praying it goes OK my friend.
    Just be ready to dole out a big hug when it is all over.

    You know my thoughts are with your family. I hope and trust that it will all turn out OK.

    It's only normal to show concern to that point if you're a parent. Keep us posted on how he is doing!

    My trifecta hit 5 months old on Monday, and the 2 times they've had shots I wanted to cry as hard as them.
    If they ever need anything like this, I am gonna need sedated as well.

    Even though it's minor, Creole, prayers to the little one.

    Hey everyone, just first of all want to thank you for the good thoughts. It really, really means a lot to me, and I've told queencreole some of what you have said, and she appreciates it too.

    Princecreole is home and doing well. He left us about 6:55 a.m., and I nearly lost it when the nurse took him from us. The next 20 minutes were pretty tough, but the beauty of music can help in times like this. That little mp3 player sure helped today.

    Doctor came out about 7:15 or 7:20 and told us all was good. He was impressed by the amount of fluid in my boy's ear. Said it was pretty nasty and since there was so much fluid, he needs ear drops for a few days.

    Princecreole was pretty groggy and grumpy for the first 30-45 minutes after we were able to get him, but he's on the floor in our living room, playing like nothing ever happened.

    I can't imagine how tough it is for parents who take their kids for major surgery, like bypass, cancer, etc. I was a nervous wreck last night and for most of the time we were at the surgery center.

    Once again, thanks everyone. The thoughts really do mean a lot!
