Desi's tubes

Today we arrived at UMMC at the awful hour of 6 a.m. to check in for Desmond to have tubes put in his ears. All of the doctors and nurses were really nice and everything went great.

Desmond got to wear a tiny hospital gown.

He was so brave and didn't cry at all even though he hadn't eaten anything all morning.

He let them listen to his heart and didn't squirm at all.

He was all the rage in the pre-op area of course. Dr. Carron said everything went perfectly. He still has an infection in one ear, of course. He'll have to have some drops for a few days, but he'll be in the clear soon.

Two hours later we are back at Heather's house waiting for his prescription to be ready at Kroger and for his grandparents to come for a visit.

Overall this was not a bad experience. I kind of look at it as a test run for what's to come this summer, no matter how small by comparison.


  1. Yay for Desi! So glad everything went well. We've been thinking about y'all!

  2. Thanks! It was so easy it was crazy. I don't know if Desi would describe it that way, but he seems to be fine. Thanks for checking in on Carmela for us!!
