Melody's surgery is scheduled for Monday. They plan to keep her overnight.

Also, Dixie and Charlie had their well-child checks. Dixie is perfect in every way, as the doctor pronounced between her screaming bouts. My ears are still ringing. I'm so glad she's done with her shots for a long time. Charlie is as defective as ever, but he passed his hearing screening and this cold managed to pass without turning into something nasty.

I'm really, really tired. Four appointments with three kids in two days.

Wow, the ENT got you scheduled in fast! Stevie had tubes about a month ago and it has made such a difference. It is like he is a new boy. Good luck!

I want to pass along some advice...bring an extra pair of undies for Melody and you dont wear good jeans.

TMI warning****
When Stevie went in to the operating room, the nurses put in a tylenol supposotory (sp?). After the surgery, he was sitting on my lap and the supposotory leaked out. It took 3 washings to get the mark out of my jeans.

I will be thinking of you on Monday.
When you get rid of bad tonsils life is so much better. Melody won't be sick, EVER AGAIN. It's amazing. And she is gonna grow.

Kids that are sick when they are little grow up to be teenagers that never get sick. Try to remember this. It's much better to miss a grade school class than a HS class.

I'm so glad that Melody's surgery got scheduled. I will be praying for all of you. I am also glad that Charlie's ickies passed this time and that Dixie is well. Much love to all of you. Let me know if you need anything next week.

umm I've been reading your blog for months now, and can I just say I love your insight! But I think that even though I've been lurking for months now that I'm still a newish reader, so i was wondering if we could maybe get a little update on why dear Melody needs surgery?

That would be sooo appreciated!
