The tubes are in!

Yes, Isaac had tubes put in his ears today. The surgery was at 8:30 this morning and I was so glad that Scotty was able to come too! The night before we practiced playing doctor with Isaac and having a mask on him since he would have to be put out. As we were waiting for them to take him back for the surgery, the Anesthesiologist saw Isaac being his same active self, and suggested giving him some meds to calm him a bit. When they finally kicked in, our normal jumpety Isaac who already had gotten into everything he could have around him, became a drunk Isaac and Scotty and I could not stop laughing at how he just stopped moving around so much and started staring into outer space. And when he smiled it was like a half drunken smile. It really was too funny to see him that way. And so Isaac did really great and the surgery lasted about ten minutes long. They simply cut a small incision in both ear drums and placed small tubes inside. He is doing great now and already is telling me that things are too loud. That's a good sign. It was quite humorous when they called us back to get Isaac as he was still waking up from the anesthesia. He was crying and whaling back and forth hysterically like he was way out of it, but awake enough to cry. Finally he calmed down a bit and fell back asleep as Scotty carried him out to the car. We sure love our Isaac and am excited to see his hearing test go from 15% in each ear to perfect hearing! Also, I am hoping that his speech will improve as well! Thanks Adriene for watching my two other kids, you are the best!
