3 Year Old Check-Up

Evan had his three year old checkup on Friday, February 26th and is doing very well. He is now 36 inches tall and weighs 28 lbs and 10oz. So he has grown almost 2 ¾ of an inch and gained about 3 lbs since he turned two. The Doctor stated he was on track. However, he did get a shot which I was not prepared for. Apparently a booster had come out for a shot since he turned 2. He wasn’t too happy about the shot but it quickly became a distant memory. I then took him to Pump It Up so he could bounce to his hearts content and then off to Chick-fil-a to meet Daddy for lunch.

On a side note, Evan did return to daycare last week and it went better than expected after being out for two weeks. Of course, it only took three days before he caught a cold. The never ending cycle of a runny nose and cough begins again.

Surgery Recovery

Evan is recovering well from surgery to have his tonsils/adenoids and a 2nd set of tubes on 2/9/10. His surgery was scheduled for 8:30 that morning so we had to be at the hospital around 7am. Evan was a real trooper about not being able to eat or drink that morning. We had been preparing him by reading Franklin goes to the Hospital. I will have to say it was heart wrenching to hand him over to Dr. Phipps who carried him into the operating room. It wasn’t this hard when he had the 1st set of tubes but this time we knew he would be undergoing general anesthesia. He was able to take his blue blanket and Snowman (stuffed animal of choice at this time) into the operating room. We spent one night in the hospital and he did so well. He didn’t bother the IV which stayed in until we left. Of course he never got out of bed until we left the next day. The hospital gets Nick Jr., his favorite TV station which helped to keep him entertained. We have been able to keep him eating and drinking and he is doing much better. Dr. Phipps said his adenoids were extremely large and they had to get fluid out of his ears. The Doctor also said that once he heals we should see a big difference. Thank you so much for your prayers.

Fun in the Snow

Evan had a great time playing in the snow. We didn't get out on Saturday as it was so cold but Sunday he was able to play a lot. We spent the morning playing at home and in the afternoon it was off to Mommaw and Poppaw's where Evan helped build a snowman and went sledding.

Evan had the easy part, Daddy pulled him up the hill on the slide and brought him back down.
