"I'll make a deal with you . . . "

". . . let's switch places - no one will know the difference!"

"Oh no! She caught us! Quick, smile and act like nothing's happening!"

Okay, so I hate posting anything without a picture, and it was so cute watching Joshua play with Sam from the other side of the window on our rainy yesterday afternoon. But the real reason for this post is to give an update on Joshua -

Everything went well today. This will be "old hat" for those of you who have gone through this with a child before, but for us, it was all new. Joe doesn't remember much from getting his tubes in as a child :o) Anyway, they took him from me a little after 8:00 a.m. (the hardest part, by the way) and then by 8:15 he was done and back to his room. They brought us back about 5 min. later when he had woken up - crying his head off. He was miserable for a couple of hours after - he was crying inconsolably for probably 45 min. after he woke up, but they say that is normal for babies. It's gradually gotten better and better. He's on Tylenol and basically only cries now when he burps - I think b/c of the pressure that puts on his ears. But even those cries are getting shorter and less intense. He ate a normal lunch and took a good afternoon nap. He seems almost back to normal now.

So, that's the update. Hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here on out - at least as far as his ears are concerned ;o)

Oh, and I didn't bring my camera, but he looked so cute in his little hospital gown :o)

Glad to hear things went well--poor guy! Hope this works and that he is back to his old self again soon:)

They put a baby hospital gown on him? Funny! Great news that everything went ok. Poor baby! I'm sure the crying and burping discomfort will be worth it though for him to be done with ear infections for good!

What language is your blog archive in? It has "janar" & "shkurt" instead of January & February!

That's funny! I have no idea - I never noticed it :o)

Hey - I just checked my settings, and for some reason the language was set to ALBANIAN!!! No idea how that happened, but it made me laugh :o)
