I'm back

Whew. I'm here, alive and kicking- barely.
I haven't really had much excitement going on, we had a great visit with my mom and grandma, probably one of my most favorite visits since we have moved here. I don't ever do anything to seek approval, but my grandma was the one person left that is able to travel, that hadn't been here, so it was nice to get her here to see that we don't live in the woods amongst serial killers and rapists. Apparently she thinks the worst, always. I feel more at peace here now. Husband and I were able to have a date night while they were here, so we enjoyed some fabulous Melting Pot..Yummmmm. We also found out thanks to his federal ID, we got 50% off of our bill, a BIG score at that place since it can get really expensive! Wooha! I would have been happy with 10%!

They left on Friday and son had his re-check for his ears. Not only was he not better, he was actually worse. So we are slated for ear tubes and an adenoidectomy this coming Thursday. I'm not upset because I know it needs to be done. He has had fluid in his ears since birth almost, and he's already suffered some hearing loss. Since removing tonsils isn't as common as it used to be, I'm hoping that with having both of these done now ,we won't ever have to go back for any other surgery, ever. In an attempt to redeem herself, mother in law is coming down Wednesday- Sunday to help out. I told her we didn't need anyone here, but she insisted, so whatever. I am more nervous about the after care of the tubes and avoiding water, then the actual surgery. That is subject to change though, as I am sure that I will be a nervous wreck on Thursday.

Other than that, not too many exciting things have happened here lately. I'm in another one of my funks, I don't know what is wrong with me. I'm soooo tired, even getting 8 hours of sleep I wake up feeling like I have never went to sleep to begin with. My whole body is sore. Apparently I ran a marathon in my sleep all this week ;) So pardon my lack of excitement in my return, but I am BEAT. Hopefully I will get caught up on sleep this weekend, but somehow I doubt it :/

My daughter has had tubes several times and an adenoidectomy. After the first set of tubes she was like a different child! She could finally hear EVERYTHING and went around for months with a look of wonderment on her face and constant questioning of "What's that?" at every little sound.

Keeping their ears dry is not that hard, even bathing wasn't compromised. We only had to use plugs with swimming.

Glad you got a date night with hubby! Those are great when they happen!

If you even need someone to talk to about anything, just come find me!

50% off? That rocks!

I'm sorry DS has to have surgery, but maybe this will finally correct his problems. Both of you are gonna be just fine. :)

Good to hear from you again, btw.

I've known like a dozen and a half people to get tubes in their ears. They all say it's nothing once it's over with and it's such a quality-of-life improvement! Good luck!
