Pending Surgery

Yes, Evan is having another surgery. We went back for follow-up with the ENT Doctor today. As I mentioned earlier, his tubes have come out of his ears. Well, the fluid is already building back up. Evan also has extremely large tonsils that the Doctor has been keeping an eye on. Evan doesn’t snore a lot but he is a heavy mouth breather. Also, due to the fact that Evan continues to have a lot of colds/cough/runny nose and two cases of strep, he will be having tubes put back in his ears and having his tonsils and adenoids out on February 9th. We will be spending one night in the hospital. So keep us in your prayers.

Evan turns 3!

It is hard to believe but Evan turned 3 on Friday, January 22nd. He is growing up so fast. He had cupcakes with his classmates on Friday to celebrate his birthday. Today we had a small family party. He had a great time playing with his cousins and was excited about his Thomas the Train Cake.

Where has the time gone?

I know, I know, there has been no update since October. Time seems to just get away from me these days. We have enjoyed the holidays and spending time with family. We had an early Thanksgiving the Sunday prior. Evan had a great time playing with his cousins.

Evan enjoyed the Christmas lights wherever we went and checking out the Christmas trees. I didn’t put as many ornaments on the tree this year but I also didn’t have to put them on the upper half of the tree. I put some of Evan’s non-breakable ornaments at the bottom. I still had to keep an eye on him or he would have had them off. We did go see Santa but he didn’t like sitting on Santa’s lap any better this year.

Evan also enjoyed the snow. He was running a slight fever but we did let him tromp through the snow for a little while. We went to the Doctor the Monday before Christmas and he had strep. So 10 days of the pink medicine and he recovered.

Hope you enjoyed our Video Christmas Card. It is amazing to us to see how much he grew and changed during 2009.

On Christmas Eve, Evan and I made cookies for Santa (okay, they were the store bought ones, Evan did add the sprinkles). We left cookies for Santa along with milk, orange juice and a bottle of water. When Evan woke up Christmas morning, he wanted to know if Santa was still here. I told him no but did he want to see if Santa had left him anything. I believe his favorite present was his leaf blower and goggles like Daddy’s. He also liked his jeep that came with a drill to take it apart and put back together. As with most kids, the clothes didn’t generate much interest.

Now we are in a New Year and starting it off sick again. Evan went to the Doctor on Wednesday (1/6). He had an ear infection. His tubes had been in a year just after Christmas. The tube in his right ear has come out and they took the tube out of his left ear. We will just have to hope this is a one time ear infection and don’t start occurring frequently or it may be tubes again.

Enjoying the Snow. He actually had snow boots for this snow. If you remember the last time we had snow, I had to put plastic bags over his tennis shoes.
