Mimi made this cute sign for the boys to welcome them home...

The boys said goodbye to their tonsils on August 5th. After reading several children's books about surgery and going to the hospital, and after taking a virtual tour of the hospital, the boys were ready for their tonsillectomies. They were so brave and were excellent patients. They enjoyed playing video games in the waiting room, and driving toy cars back to the operating rooms. Both procedures went well, but we ended up spending two nights at the hospital. Due to swelling, Spencer was getting less oxygen than the doctors were comfortable with, so we stayed so that they could monitor him. The boys were in separate rooms down the hall from each other, so this was a bit of a dilemma for us but we survived. They ate lots of ice cream and jello, and even felt up to playing in the play room on Saturday morning. It took a full week to recover, but I am excited to say they are feeling much better. Thanks so much for your prayers and well wishes!! Here are a few pics of the world's cutest patients :)
