ENT and a Broken Nose

What a week. I think I have emotionally had it. When Ty gets hurt or is sick we turn to a coping mode. We get him all fixed up and then DEEP breathe and realizing we survived.

Today was Ty's ENT appointment. We survived!

I went to get him from school and talked to his Teacher for a little bit. The HAPPY note is that he is EXCELLING at school. He is doing SOOO good.

We headed up to Salt Lake and needed to have lunch. We stopped at McDonald's. * Side note* 4 years ago I NEVER ever ever in my whole life would have been ok with eating at a McDonald's with Tyler AND letting him play in the play place I think I have come a LONG way GERM freak wise.

So we take off to the office and get there RIGHT on time. We have little wait time. The ENT is a HUGE huge man and we LOVE him. He is nice and gentle. Tyler hands him Leo and he looks at Leo's nose and tells Tyler that it is broken. Tyler responded in True Tyler fashion and says " OHH NO!"

The exam went pretty good for Tyler. He held Leo and CRIED like a baby and spit on the Doc. The consensus is: JUNE surgery for his tonsils, JUNE surgery for his nose, JUNE surgery for phenol.

They want us back in 2 weeks to check his nose. It is still pretty swollen because he was face planted on Wednesday. So they are hoping it looks OK for waiting for a surgery time in June.

They will have to do more "fixing" of it when he is bigger but for now they will do just a few things in June.

On the way out the door we stopped by the cute river they have going through their parking lot and I dropped my Iphone. I have now become the iPhone killer and have killed 3 Iphones. It is a mess...

We spent the rest of the day at the park. Literally ... the rest of the day.

Time now to CHILL and relax. It went good. It went well. We can hold off the mom freak out till June.

Sorry about your phone, but I am glad that Tyler's appointment went well. I broke my nose when I was 25 weeks pregnant with my first son and had to have surgery to fix it during the pregnancy. I hope everything remains relaxing and gives you a rest until the excitement that June will bring.

I'm glad Ty's appointment went well. I'm sure it will be better to get everything done at the same time. You all will have a tough June as Ty recovers from all of his surgeries. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. SLY!!!
