Phew!

"God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way." --Unknown

Logan was wonderful today. He is such an example of courage and strength. As soon as we entered the pre-op room I think he became slightly aware that something was up. I could tell he was a bit nervous but he was very cooperative with all of the procedures that needed to be done before surgery. I was doing fairly well until Logan called my name as he was walking away and signed "I love you". Jake was able to take him back to the surgical room this time, which was nice. He did as we practiced and took ahold of the "sleeping mask" himself and went right to sleep without a fight.

During surgery, the doctor found mucous in his inner ear which was cause for concern. He warned us that if we continue with the surgery, there would be a greater risk of infection and meningitis. We decided to continue with the surgery and feel good about our decision.

After surgery, Logan woke up a little groggy and irritable but calmed down pretty quickly. We went home only 2 hours after surgery.


Thank you so much for all your well wishes, we are grateful for all of you! Also, a big "thank you" to Grandma Cragun for flying in to take care of the other brothers today while we were at the hospital.



Making sure we get the correct ear...
