Long week

Wow, what a week it has been. We went to Pleasant Grove on Wednesday after Kurt got off work, Gavin's surgery was scheduled for 7:30 Thursday morning, so we went and stayed with my Grandma the night before. Everything about the surgery was just great! The doctor was really great, he came and talked to us before the surgery and twice after, he was very good to explain what the procedure was and ask if we had questions. They took us to a little room while we waited for him to go into surgery, there were toys and books for him to play with, he loved it! When the doctor came to take him to surgery, Gavin jumped right into his arms and left. Not one tear!! That made me a little sad- but also happy! The procedure was about 20 minutes and then he was out and awake. The IV they left in his arm bugged him the most, once it was out he was happy and ready to go home. He was tired for about 30 minutes and then ate oatmeal, chicken nuggets, a cookie and other treats. He didn't even seem like anything had happened to him. Kids are so great that way! His nights have been a little hard since we have been back, but I am sure they will get better!

Thanks Grandma for letting us crash with you for 4 days, you are so wonderful and we love you!! Thanks to all those who called to check on him! And thanks Grandpa Seals for the Jazz van, he loves it!!

What a trooper!!! Shannon had to have eye surgery to fix a blocked tear duct when she was 13 months old. It took about the same amount of time. I am glad he did so AWESOME!!! What a blessing. Hope your nights get better.

GAvin is such a little trooper. He gets that from the Barton family. Maybe a little from the Seals. I glad you had a fun time. Grandma Barton always puts on quite a good time. The wedding was lots of fun.
