Tubes in, adenoids out!

It is the Friday after Thanksgiving, and I am updating from work at 4:00. Yes, that's right, I'm working the day after Thanksgiving and am still here at 4:00. Sigh. You can't win 'em all. I will post more about the Thanksgiving holiday next time, but first, we've got other ground to cover!
Oliver got tubes in his ears for the 2nd time last week. He has had fluid in them non-stop for about 6 months now and it's to the point where hearing loss and speech development are becoming a concern. The ear doctor went ahead and removed his adenoids at the same time. Poor guy! O was such a good sport heading into the procedure. We had to be there at 6:30 am and the procedure was scheduled for 7:00. Everything went really smoothly. Oliver happily went off with the nurse (turned and gave us a wave and that was it). So trusting....45 minutes later, he was one pissed-off dude. After several hours of being zoned out in front of the TV, the little guy finally shook off the pain and the meds and was pretty much his old self.
Grammy & Grandpa Coles came to visit last weekend to help out, so they were able to keep him entertained enough to distract him from his discomfort.
In fact, Grammy and Oliver's favorite activity during their visit was to cruise YouTube and watch different Christmas videos. I think we unwittingly turned Oliver into a YouTube addict. Matt found a toddler flashcard video on YouTube the other night and filmed Oliver. It's pretty awesome. So, we now have a YouTube video of Oliver watching a YouTube video. :)
More to come! Gotta get back to work. Slave to the man and all.
