Reubs’ Tubes

As I mentioned in Reuben’s 11 month post, he had to have tubes put in due to frequent ear infections.  His surgery was on Wednesday, February 24th.  I was mostly nervous about having to wake him up early and not being able to feed him until after surgery; however, my sweet boy was such a trooper.  He did a great job and the surgery was a huge success!  We went for our 2 week check-up this week and he has no more fluid and no more hearing loss!  Praise the Lord!

I wasn’t planning to take pictures so I didn’t bring my good camera, but Reuben looked too cute that morning to not snap a few pics on my camera phone.  The quality is poor but the cuteness factor is high!

The wagon was a lifesaver.  Rolling up and down the hallway was a great distraction.

Reuben had the entire nursing staff wrapped around his little finger by the end of that morning.  He is such a charmer!
