So very Thankful she is doing well and counting the many Blessings in my life!
Having her taken from me by the nurses as she is drifting off from the oral medication was probably the hardest thing about the entire surgery. We arrived at 6 am, she was taken in just a little after 7 am and we were home by 9:30 am. Dr. Flaiz was wonderful and the entire group at the hospital involved in her care were absolutely awesome she was not scared at all. When she was waking up from the anastetic was hard for mom as well but she was pretty much awake when she returned to me. She couldn't stand or walk without staggering all over the place but I survived the ordeal.

I scoop them up and run into house -- find the baking soda make a paste and slap it on his cheek. Yes, I still had two screamin' kids - I think Addi screamed louder and longer than Austin did as she was scared that Austin had an owieee!!
Sympathy crying from Addi!!!
The evening ended with mom holding Austin and Dad holding Addi. No Bath!!! oh, well maybe tonight.

"Come on Mom! Get your bucket!"
You can't really see the big 'CHUNK' gone from the front of his hair. He was so cute trying to tell me how he did it... "I just picked up some and I cut my hair."
I sure hope that when Addi attempts this it is not noticable either.

Why I haven't blogged in over a week?
Well, my internet line has been down for almost 3 days -- I'm finally back online -Yeah. My dad was in town on Sunday night and we had a short visit with him.... Austin and Addi just love to see their "Bampa!!!" (as Addi would say)
My kids have been so demanding at night when it is bedtime that one or both of us have been laying down with them and we are so exhausted we end up falling alseep and then getting up and going to be about 11:30 every night.
Work has been paperwork, meetings, phone calls, evaluations, visits, and more and more paperwork.... I'm beginning to think paperwork is the 'pits'.
Tony has been on call and is still on-call for the next few more evenings.....
We actually went for two bike rides with Austin on his new bike but where are the pics.
It's LIFE fun, we all have our busy season of the year..... we all have things that keep us so busy that we can't seem to enjoy our friends, or we feel like we are in a whirl wind of STUFF!!
I hope your day and week are going great.... Have a great weekend.
I know we are making plans to enjoy ours!
Pictures to come soon!!!

Work has been overwhelming difficult paperwork, meetings, paperwork, visits, more paperwork, conferences, and more and more paperwork..... I am so far behind in paperwork -- I'm really not sure where to start. I really don't like being so disorganized....
We are gearing up for Austin's 4th Birthday party tomorrow (pictures to come). He is so excited and has had a difficult time wanting to be 4 already.... "Am I four today?" has been the top question every morning for the past week. So the BIG day is tomorrow.
Addison has had swollen tonsils for a week and a half -- no other signs. Still waiting for some other signs--- fever, white spots or signs of infection etc.... but nothing. I really don't know how she is swallowing her food -- luckily she is choosing soft foods right now. I'll keep monitoring....
Tony has had a hectic week and a half at work as well. Employee issues.... and now he is on call --- pretty much for the next 2 weeks secondary to an unexpected employee issue... He has been at work since about 6:30 this evening and it is now 11 o'clock. He is tired, overwhelmed and stressed.... not a really good combination for my wonderful Husband.... but this will soon pass.
I am making it a point to blog more this month ----- I only have about 5- more weeks left of school and then SUMMER break!!!! Yippeee, Yeahooo!!!
