The countdown begins..........




My precious boy is getting his tonsils and adenoids out on Thursday. I know this is a very simple and everyday procedure but it still is sending me into waves of panic. Putting him under scares me to death. And the thought of him waking up from surgery in pain makes me cringe.

Lucky for us, we get to spend the night at Dell Children's in Austin. This will help keep my post-op anxiety at bay. Hopefully. A bustling hospital full of highly trained professionals should be enough to take of my little guy. Right? Right?

I have been praying and praying and praying and know Bram will be watched over and taken care of. And then I feel selfish that there are mothers out there with children that are so sick and have such bigger fish to fry than their baby getting his tonsils out.

He will be fine.

We went and picked out a new back pack and two new pairs of stain free pajamas for his hospital stay. Of course he picks out a back pack with blue sharks all over it. I even took him to a darling children's boutique on the square to make sure a super cute one was picked out and the Power Ranger selection very limited. Of course he picked out the ugliest one in the whole store. Oh well, it is his surgery, not mine. Maybe I will get it monogrammed. That will possibly help in the cuteness department. And will give me a project to calm my nerves a bit.

That and a little friend I like to call Xanax....

GOOD LUCK! And yes he will be fine, but that still does not help your nerves. Drama Queen had tubes put in and adenoids out.. she did fine, but be prepared for the coming out of anestesia... its kind of rough... at least it was for her.. she was growling, but it did not last long.
