26 August 2008


I knew that today was going to be a bit more rough than normal-Stu was having dental surgery this afternoon. What I wasn't prepared for was both boys waking up numerous times throughout the night. It's not uncommon for Tyson to get up within an hour of us putting him to bed, but he got up at 2:30, 4, 4:45, 5:15, 5:30 and then Stuart finally got up with him at 5:45. In the AM! I'm not sure what was going on in that little boy but it definitely was not sleep. Tucker woke up at 3 and 5 roughly (I think he was woken up by Tyson's screaming) but he doesn't get out of bed so I just let him cry back to sleep.

So the morning was early, too early. I was a wreck all morning long. On top of that I had to get things ready for Stu's dental surgery. It was at 1 pm so I asked a friend if she could come over and watch them while they napped. She is awesome. She never says no. What a blessing! Anywho I was really worried about leaving her with them because of the rough night and just knowing they weren't going to nap well (they did thankfully).

This was round two for Stuart's dental surgeries. He has receding gum lines and the dentist is taking a graph from the roof of his mouth and stitching it over the bad gums. About a month ago he did the left side. Unfortunately it didn't take. Poor guy was in so much pain and could only eat soft food for a week and all that for nothing! But my husband is brave and wanted to try again, this time on the right. The surgery took 2 1/2 (1 1/2 longer than expected) but this time Stu took the IV meds instead of the local (good boy). He's doing good, just in a lot of pain. Say a little prayer that this side takes and that he starts to heal soon! Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. :)
