Tubes Report

Emily did GREAT with getting her tubes. The MD said she was really sweet the whole time. She never cried. We were so proud of her. The MD told us that the fluid was really thick and he said he did not see how she got by with that little hearing.

She really does seem really happy and pleasant already.

I should have just had the doctors put tubes in my girls ears before they left the hospital at birth. Most EVERY visit to the MD for both girls has been ear infections and ear troubles. We have spent tons of money on MD visits.

Oh well.....I am just happy they both have them now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Emily hates to eat.
After I cooked lunch today she said, "well, the Dr said I should not eat any food." Ha ha! We are born with a sin nature.

It is amazing how much better they feel after the tubes. Andrew got his when he was 15 mos. and immediately started walking and talking better! They said all the fluid was throwing his balance off and that he couldn't hear sounds well enough to make them. Good for Emily!

I'm glad it went well! I know she's going to feel better and be able to hear things better too!

YAY!! So glad everything went well!!!!! Such a trooper!!! :)
Oh, I'm so happy to hear that all is well! Such good news!
I'm so glad Emily did well. I totally know how you feel about just putting them in at birth - lots of earaches & MD visits would have been avoided!!

Glad everything went well! :)
Ha! I said the same thing about tubes! So much so, that when my second boy was born, I said Where's the ENT? Let's do tubes NOW!". ha-ha-ha-ha.....TUBES are the best, don't you think? Could you tell a difference in her hearing after only hours? I could in my little boy! I'm so glad everything went well for y'all!!!! YAY for Emily!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
