well the tubes are in. and let me say, it was probably the WORST experience of my life. jeremiah was a total doll before the surgery, even tho he was hungry. several times he came to me with his nursing face and noise, and i had to hand him over to my mom or jerry, because how can i refuse a hungry baby like that?!?! right before the surgery, they gave him medicine that is supposed to make him zone out and calm down.
but they came and got him before it had the full effect, so he was crying when they took him from me (broke my heart). they had said it would be 15 to 20 minutes before he was done, so jerry and i went to get something to eat. my mom was still in the room, and they were supposed to page us when he was done, or if they needed us. they got done sooner than we’d thought, and we’d also gotten kind of lost trying to find the food court, so we were gone longer too. when we got in there, jeremiah was ok, but his face was bright red, and he’d been bawling his eyes out. stupid me, i thought i could comfort him more, but i got him all worked up again. so he was screaming and crying and needing to go from one person to the next. he acted like he was mad at me and wouldn’t nurse for anything. i still wonder if he was upset because he couldn’t nurse before and i was the one who handed him over to the nurse. 🙁
anyway, he kept getting calm then would grow irate again.
so why was it the worst experience of my life? because my baby was in the most pain i’d ever seen him. he was inconsolable and there was nothing i could do! jerry and i were both in tears when we could do nothing for him.
when we were finally able to leave, he was fine. he is now doing ok, almost his normal self. he nursed fine once we were home. he’s still a bit on the whiny side, but who can blame him? i pray it was worth it and his ears improve!!
thanks for all your prayers – they meant a lot to us!!!!!! continue to pray for his healing.
hugs and blessings from a worn-out, emotionally spent, but blessed mama.

    I’m sorry you all had such a rough time, and am praying for a quick recovery. I do wish they had waited longer for the “happy juice” to take affect before taking him off to surgery. When Jared had surgery, he doesn’t even remember being taken away from us, because he was so out of it. (Talk about one loopy kid!)

    I do understand how hard it must have been for you, to see your little guy in pain and not being able to do anything for him. We couldn’t even hold Jared for the first 24 hours, because he had to be lying flat… It’s the hardest thing I ever went through. But after that he recovered VERY quickly, as I know that Jeremiah will too!

    Now we’ll pray that those nasty ear infections stop!!!

    Love to you all,
    Julie

  5. Praise God everything worked out.
    Praise God everything worked out. I am so sorry that Jeremiah had such a rough time. I am glad that he’s nursing fine now at home. Babies just can’t process everything very well… not to mention when Sarrah is super super hungry (much like her mama) she’s nearly inconsolable. That might have had something to do with it.

  6. I know that this isn’t the worst the thing any baby has gone thr
    I know that this isn’t the worst the thing any baby has gone through but when it’s your own child it tears your heart out. You never want to see your child in pain and inconsolable. The experience made me realize just how much I love Jeremiah. This week I saw a St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital commercial on TV and felt so much sadness in my heart for those children and their families. Today, as I held my screaming, crying boy in my arms, I felt so helpless. I couldn’t image the strength it would take to be a parent of one of those St. Jude’s children. I praise God that Jermiah doesn’t have a life threatening illness. We have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

  7. Soooooo glad to hear he’s okay.

    Soooooo glad to hear he’s okay.

    in there! My prayers are with you all.

    Oh Jenn.. Lots of big hugs to you and that little guy.. I am so sorry that you both had to go through that.. You are in my prayers.. and I hope the tubes work.. and he has a very speedy recovery.. Lots of hugs..

  10. (((((( hugs )))))) Oh, poor J and poor you & Jerry, too 🙁
    (((((( hugs )))))) Oh, poor J and poor you & Jerry, too 🙁 That must have been so difficult.

    Once again, you are a SUPER MAMA, Jenn, doing what you needed to do for your little one, no matter how hard it was. I remember when Boo had to get stitches last Feb. and I had to be the one to hold her still while they did it … I felt like I was betraying her, even though I knew she needed the stitches. I sobbed my eyes out later that night 🙁

    *sigh* The things we super heros have to do, huh? 🙂 Be gentle to yourself and I hope that the three of you get a nice, cozy weekend together to recover from your big day today.

    Your in my prayers!
