Wow, what a week it’s been here! Mister had an ENT appointment on Tuesday at St Louis Children’s Hospital. It was a follow up to his tube placement that was done in June when he had the twofer. They tried to do a behavioral hearing test, but it was not reliable, so he will have to be retested in January.
Then, he had surgery yesterday. He was born with a hypospadius and megameatus (basically, his pee hole was too big and in the wrong spot), so we had to have it repaired. He came home with a catheter. Fun, fun.
He also had his tear ducts probed and flushed again. The eye doctor tried to put stents in his tear ducts, but they (the tear ducts) were just too small. So, if his eyes remain symptomatic, we will have to try again in a few weeks.
He has been cranky since the surgery, as could be expected. But, over all, he is doing well. He actually played for a bit today, and I was able to get some smiles out of him. He has the cutest smiles. ::: proud shrug:::
My husband’s Mom, Dad, and sis CeeCee are coming to visit this weekend. I am so excited! They live in KC, MO, and it’s been a few months since we saw them last. I HAD planned on us going to KC for the holiday weekend, but for some dumb reason thought it was next weekend. When I realized it was only 3 days after Mister’s surgery, and that he was coming home with a catheter for a week, I really didn’t feel comfortable traveling too far from the hospital. So, my dear in-laws decided to come here. What a relief! I felt horrible that I had to cancel our trip there. I am so glad that Mister will get to see his grandparents!
