Hello! I feel like I can breathe again! We were so nervous on Sunday and Monday morning about Beck but it all worked out perfectly and I have never seen him happier than he has been after his surgery!
Things started at 4:50 a.m. to get up to SLC. My sister had the girls sleep over at her house and then my mom picked up Knox from his mom’s house in the morning… So grateful they were there to help with the other three kids so that Andrew and I could both be at the hospital.
Beck had no idea what was going on because we woke him up and we couldn’t feed him.
He was very aware of every little thing going on around him!
Lots of waiting until it was his time to go… Keeping him happy when he was hungry + not letting him crawl on the ground was quite the task!
Our hearts broke when the anesthesiologist took him away. Getting his tubes in took a bit longer than normal because the doctor said there was a lot of a very thick glue-like substance they had to get out but the surgery was successful.
Beck was very mad when he first woke up but calmed down once we started getting food in him. And from that point on he was so much happier. He was babbling like crazy (and whispering in the car which I have never heard him do but I think he was enjoying being able to hear himself whisper) and cried 99.9% less than he normally does. My mama heart feels complete again!
Let’s chat about some tangents!
*Nobody loves honey butter like Skye loves honey butter.
*One of the many reasons I love Madewell, their ads include wrinkles/reality.
*Andrew will always be a big kid…
*Beck and my niece are birthday twins and they also like to dress alike:)
*Saw this and said, ‘AMEN’!!!
*Generalization time—> Why is it that boys can go months without running and then just pick up and run 6 miles?! Andrew is that person that would max out at 10 miles leading up to a marathon (he paid for that type of training on race day but he still was able to run the 26.2)!
*My brother gave this book to everyone in our family and wow. Just wow.
There are so many pages in here that stop me in my tracks! It’s helping me with parenting and my own life and it’s a book that actually includes tangible steps on how to better balance and let go of addictions that are holding you back. (PS the story in the first chapter is for mature audiences only!)
*Beck tries every maneuver possible to get me to stop doing my strength training…
*I love the way Skye looks at herself in the mirror.
Have any tangents for the day?
