Gavin's surgery was yesterday and it went very well, according to the doctor. The night before his surgery, he slept with me and woke up in the middle of the night crying out in pain. He did this on and off for a few hours. When he woke up the next morning, I noticed he had some drainage coming from his left ear. Apparently, his eardrum ruptured in the middle of the night. Which explains the relief in pain. Since the pressure was causing the pain, the rupture relieved the pressure, which in turn relieved the pain. Thankfully, he shouldn't experience any long term damage. He is resting at home today, and will return to school tomorrow!
Chad left Sunday to go to work in the Galveston, TX area. We will hopefully be going to visit him this weekend! Unfortunately, he didn't get to go on Gavin's field trip to Liuzza Farms because it was cancelled due to rain. But hopefully the rain is gone for a while!
