It's been a week...

This week has been a whirlwind of ups and downs, mainly downs in Skylar's case.

On Monday, we had Skylar's ear surgery for the second time. He had this same procedure of tubes being inserted in his ears, when he was 8 months old. Since May, June or July of this year, both tubes finally came out. (They usually stay in for a year to a year and a half.) Anyways, since they were so small, I had no idea they were out. BUT, we did notice the constant ear infections from there, so we put it together. He also had his Adenoids taken out as well. Apparently, they were extemely large and were needed to be taken out. This is supposed to help him and only a small percent still will have constant problems. We're hoping we are not in that small percent. We shall see right?

He did SOO well after the surgery on Monday. Talking up a storm, eating up a storm and playing like he was Tornado Skylar. You should have seen his playroom. Like my storm talking here, huh?

On to Tuesday, he was a little warm, nothing to be concerned about, right? Flash forward to Tuesday night and then the high fever came into play. Poor guy cried on and off through out the night and didn't go to daycare on Wednesday.

High note- My brother and his wife Holly, found out they are expecting a girl. I wonder what she will look like. Normally, I would say she would look like John (at least have his complextion), but then I look at Skylar. LOL... no one expected that.

On Wednesday, I took the morning off and then Terry took the afternoon off to stay home and take care of him. We scheduled a doctor's visit, because we weren't sure if this was because of the tubes or what? Of course the result was that he may have a viral infection and of course the remedy for that is to let it run it's course. I mean, come on now! Give me something to work with here.

Today he seems to be better, so he's at daycare. I hope he has a much better day. I will say this, on our way to daycare, I was trying to belt out a Sarah McLachlan song in the car. You know, where Skylar is the only one in the audience at my high profile concert?

Our conversation as follow:
Skylar- "Momma!!"
Me- "What?"
Skylar- "Stop it mommy!"

I mean, obviously he doesn't know talent when he hears it. :) Who died and made him Simon Cowell. Seriously.
