Surgery Update

Chet's surgery went very well today. We had to check in at 6:00 a.m., and the hospital is nearly 40 miles away, so it was a VERY early morning. We left the hospital a little after noon, and Chet got sick in the car a couple of times on the way home (probably too much information). Thankfully, one of the nurses armed us with "seasick" bags for the ride home. Chet felt much better afterward, and has not felt sick since. He has been sleeping most of the afternoon. The time spent shopping for the recliner and the lack of joy I had for rearranging the living room was worth it as long as he is comfortable.

Speaking of sleeping, I won. Against Sydney. She did not nap long at daycare today (she rarely does, even though she takes TWO two-hour naps a day on the weekends), and that combined with getting up over an hour earlier than usual made her a cranky baby when I picked her up from daycare. Situations like this arise fairly frequently, and I always plan to get her in bed earlier than usual (her bedtime is 7:30, give or take 15 minutes), but it never works out the way I want it to (Sydney always convinces me to keep her up until her normal time...even though I KNOW she needs more sleep...which makes her the winner). But tonight...I put her in bed at 6:30, and she was asleep 15 minutes later. Woo hoo!

Here are a few random pictures of Sydney playing in the back of Chet's truck. These were taken about a month ago.

I like this one.

Reaching for me and shouting.

Rumpled.

Glad things went well for Chet! Hopefully he has a speedy recovery! Sydie Sydie Boom Boom is just too cute! She still looks just the same as she did when shew as born, just older! Her hair is finally starting to get long...I see pony tails in the future!! As far as Chet getting sick in the car...that probably has to do with the anesthesia from the surgery. Good thing that nurse was thinking ahead! That could have been a big mess!! Miss y'all!
