The surgeon called us yesterday at gave us TJ's surgical date. Monday, December 1st. We are really nervous about the whole ordeal. Thomas will have his tonsils and adenoids out. They are doing the surgery at Miller Dwan and then sending him over to St. Mary's over night. With his age and asthma they want to be able to monitor him. The specialist wanted him evaluated by the ENT, who felt that TJ has had pneumonia too many times in his short life and too many sinus infections. We are hoping this will cut down his need for prednisolone.
Jesse and I are worried about recovery time. Just this morning TJ was coughing at the table. I thought, how much is that going to hurt after his surgery. I worry about keeping him hydrated and comfortable.
Ashton had this surgery last year, he was five. He ran a low-grade 100 temperature for 11 days and was so uncomfortable. Finally on day 12 he was back to his normal self. I am hoping TJ doesn't take that long to recover. I am hoping he will bounce back even faster!!!
So, please say a prayer for TJ, and for us.

Ashton is really into math, has been since he was 3. He see's a pattern in so many things. He loves major digit addition, subtraction, and multiplication. I caught him on camera!

Too all those serving, we thank you. Too all those who have served, we thank you. God bless you and your families.

The youth of today, do you understand?
They were called to duty, and so they went
The heroes of our country
Next time, young folks, you pass someone
They may dress funny, not see as well
Brave men today are still at war
You may dress funny, not hear as well
So when you’re called to duty
Support our President, support our troops

My baby has shed the last of his babiness. He has given up diapers! He is potty-trained. I honestly kept him in diapers as long as I could. I fought his wanting to potty train until the bitter end.
TJ has decided to use the bathroom like his big brothers (they are terrible role models). I should have put the big kids back in diapers! Kidding. Maybe.
So, in all fairness to my angel baby, good job baby-mine. Mommy is so proud of you, of how big you are!
