The tongue surgery

The tongue surgery was today, we survived- barely. It is only four in the afternoon and it feels like it has been a long day already. We had to be at the hospital at six. Spencer did not get to eat after eleven so we fed him right before then. He could have clear liquid up until four this morning so we got up and fed him pedialyt. Even with all our efforts he was still hungry this morning. I felt so bad for him. The doctors and nurses were really nice and it went pretty fast. We got home around eleven. Garret went with us and was really good. He just watched cartoons the whole time. Spencer has had a little trouble figuring out what to do with his tongue and how to eat, hopefully he will recover quickly. I hate seeing the little one in any pain. I am glad its over and I am glad they did it now while he was young and before he had speech problems. I will have to post a picture of his more movable tongue soon. (It is swollen and has stitches now so its not too pretty)

It is so hard to see uncomfortable & difficult things happen to our children, especially when they are so little. We are so glad that he is okay and that this experience is behind all of you! Tyler is done with finals & now you guys can just relax & enjoy Christmas! Loved all the pictures...
Love to all,
Grandma, Grandpa, & Uncle Trenton

oooh! poor baby, I'm sure he will be better in no time. (and nice that he won't remember a thing!) I'm sure you're relieved it's all over with.
