Tubas in my ears!

We woke up at the crack of dawn (or a little before) and headed to the hospital for these two munchkins to get tubes put in their ears. Remi and Sawyer received the royal treatment for sure.
When we arrived they had two beds set up in the same room, one for Remi and one for Sawyer. Each had their gowns and socks laid out, along with a goodie bag, including their own stuffed animal and coloring book. They were in heaven! The nurses were so good with them taking practice runs for surgery and letting Remi play with the stethoscope. One of the nurses let Sawyer watch a movie on her personal ipad.

Sawyer named his puppy "Sparky". :) And the gowns were way to big for Remi, so she ended up going in her pjs. In the end they both woke up just fine. Remi was a little lethargic and Sawyer was as happy as a clam drinking up all of their apple juice.

When he woke up he asked Jason what happened. Jason told him that he had tubes put in his ears. Sawyer heard "tubas" and still tells everyone that he has musical tubas in his ears. What a funny kid! We were home with in a couple of hours and everyone was back to their normal selves. I'm hoping this helps with ear infections, but I don't think we will really know until next year.
