Samuel was such a trooper this morning as we drove to the hospital at 6:00 a.m. for his sinus surgery. We finally got checked in around 7:00 and then he was given his "happy juice." Boy, is that stuff great!! He wanted to walk, but I told him his muscles wouldn't work. He said, poking his arm, "Look Mama. I still have muscles." Then he kept staring at his feet saying, "Mama, look how big my feet are!"

The surgery only took about 20 minutes. Dr. A said his adenoids were very enlarged and his sinuses were more blocked then he initially thought. He said that Sam has only had about 25% capacity to his nose/sinuses. No wonder the poor boy has had such problems.

Sam cried a lot as he came out of the anesthesia and was very angry that he had an IV drip. He just wanted me to rock and hold him. All the folks at the hospital were wonderful to us. They made the experience as good as could be expected.

They sent us home with amoxicillin and tylenol with codeine. Sam passed out on the couch for a couple of hours and by noon he was asking for a banana and acting much more like himself.

Here's a giant thank you, to the staff at Lovelace Hospital, Dr. A, and "happy juice." We are even hopeful that he won't need his nebulizer anymore and possible doesn't even have asthma.

God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good!
