Third Time's a Charm

I'm hoping that's the case with the third set of ear tubes that Jonah received this week plus having his adenoids removed. He was a real trooper when we headed to the surgery center before the sun came up, something none of us are used to. After a shot of the "happy juice" I wouldn't mind having one of those for myself and a little persuasion with some surgical gloves, Jonah happily left in the arm's of our doctor and headed to the OR. Exactly 47 minutes later, he was sobbing in the recovery room over the fact that there was an IV in his arm. It took me, Josh and a nurse to hold him down so he wouldn't rip it out. Finally, he calmed down, took a few sips of apple juice and they removed the IV and released us home! After a 4 hour nap he was back to being Jonah, running around and begging for fruit loops and goldfish!

Ugh.... the 3rd time. I fear that we will have to do this for the 3rd time again this Fall.

Hope all is well.
