Owen's surgery tomorrow...

Owen is getting tubes put in his ears tomorrow. It's a very minor procedure, but his audiologist requested another hearing test be done while he's under for the procedure. So, instead of being under anesthesia for 15 minutes for a 5 minute procedure, he will have an IV and a breathing tube and be out for 2 hours while they perform the hearing test after putting in the tubes. Still not a huge deal, but it's a bigger deal, at least to me. Plus, he can't have anything to eat after midnight tonight and no bottle within 6 hours. That should be fun. I've never seen a more dramatic child when he's hungry!

Anyway, if you think about it, please pray for our little guy tomorrow afternoon and for us as we wait for him to undergo the surgery and try to keep Kate entertained at Childrens' all afternoon. Come to think of it, that just might be the worst part! :)

I don't know if I've posted any pictures of Owen and his hat, but here are a few for your enjoyment. I know it makes him look a little "special", but it really does work to keep him from pulling his hearing aids out! My little 'Special Owen' aka 'hatboy'...
