The eraser has been removed from Ty's ear.


We left for the hospital at 5:45 a.m., and Ty was taken into surgery at about 8:23 a.m. By 8:27 a.m. the doctor was finished the procedure and reported success. And Ty has the remains of the eraser to prove it. I was able to see Ty by 8:30 a.m. right after he woke up from the anesthetic.

Thank you for your prayers. Fortunately, an intravenous line was not required and the anesthetist just put Ty to sleep with the aid of a mask and some sleeping gas. So it was all pretty uneventful and probably the most routine procedure that our ear, throat and nose specialist has ever done.

Ty wanted to return to school for the rest of the day, so that's where he is right now. And me? Well, I'm going to go get some shut-eye. Good-night!

What a relief that this chapter is over for poor little Ty (and Mom too). I've been catching up with you today. May God bless your efforts and bring balance, as you to seek ways to help your family financially. :~)

PTL Kimmy! I am sorry I didn't see the post earlier about his surgery; otherwise I would have been praying. Hope you got some rest! I've missed your posts, but understand that life needs you first! Have a blessed weekend friend!
