Now on to the update:
We arrived at All Children's this morning and I had to tell our story to at least 10 people. At the end each person said "hummmm"......yea thanks....hence why we are here. I spoke quickly to the ENT doctor who would be doing the procedure. She basically told me that this was a routine procedure, but her equipment wasn't small enough for Baby E so she would see what she could, but she wouldn't be able to see everything. Hummm...then what is the point? You would think at a hospital that deals only in children would have small enough equipment to do the procedure on any size kid. Then I had the "pleasure" of speaking with the anesthesiologist. Who basically told me that there was a good possibility that due to Baby E's size she would need to be intabated after the procedure and kept for awhile for observation if she had problems with the anesthesia. Great....thanks for warning me about this before I left my house which is over an hour away so I could have come prepared. Ugh!

The pulmonologist said to continue doing the medicine and that we would then see her on Wednesday. Yea....another doctor appointment.

I was even able to make and frost cupcakes for Little L to take to daycare tomorrow to celebrate his birthday. I really enjoy being able to make cupcakes for him. My mom always made cut out cookies for me to take to school for my birthday. My family always made a big deal of birthdays and I plan on doing the same for our kids. I know M's family always blew his birthday off, but birthday's are important to me. Don't get me wrong, it's not about the presents, it's about getting together with family and friends to celebrate the day they were born. It's about making sure that person feels special. It's something that is important to me.
With that said. Baby E is doing great, thank goodness! Little L is turning 3 on Saturday!!! Eeeekkkk!!! and I am one pooped mama. Go figure too, it's storming outside right now, which means this mama isn't going to be getting much sleep until it stops. :)
