God Must Be A Comedian!

Both of the boys had their tonsils out on September 11th. We decided to do them both on the same day 45 minutes apart. Being that Keaton was under three years old and that Ayden had his heart scare this summer Dr. Lewis wanted to keep them both in the hospital over night. Blake and I had it all planned out. I spent all day on Wednesday making Jell-O and pudding. We went to the store and let the boys pick out popsicles and ice cream. Ayden was being very brave about having his tonsils and getting excited about all the ice cream that his Papa told him that he could have. The night before Blake had a softball game and we took the boys. The very first play of the game Blake went to dive for a ball and stepped in a hole and either pulled or tore his ACL. We are still waiting on the results from the MRI. I got home and got everyone comfortable and in be and you will never guess what happened! About 3 am I started getting sick at my stomach! Of all times to get the tummy flu!! Let me just recap and remind you all that Blake's mom just had surgery on her elbow, my aunt-mom is in Florida taking care of her dad who has a growth on his liver, my grandmother had a cancer spot on her nose removed on the 8th of September that required 32 stitches, and Blake's grandfather just had his corroded artery cleaned and is not suppose to be moving around to much.

Thursday morning I could not even move. I lay-ed on the couch in the surgery waiting room until Blake told me that the doctor said that I could not be around the boys and that I had to go home. That was the most awful feeling in the world! Your babies are having surgery and you cannot even kiss the before they go in. By the time I got up and go to the parking lot I felt better so I went straight to my doctor and got some phenergan gel. Blake call and told me that Dr. Lewis said that if I would go home and take a shower and wear a mask around the boys that I could come back.

By the time that I got back both boys were in there hospital room. Ayden was fine! He looked at his daddy when I got there and asked when he was going to have his tonsils out! He ate 5 cups of ice cream!! Keaton was a different story. He was inconsolable! It took us three hours to get him to stop crying and take a nap!

We are all home now and doing well. Both boys are tired of being in the house. We are all very ready to go back to school!!

Thank you to everyone for your call, e-mails, and most of all for your prayers!!

So glad everyone is feeling better. Is Blake hobbling around? Does he need some crutches? I have a pair over here that he can borrow if he needs them.
