O Christmas Tree

Our normal Thanksgiving travel means we would have cut down our tree last weekend, but we were in Boston. Today we loaded the boys up and drove to our favorite christmas tree farm – which thankfully sends a postcard every year reminding us of their address. Because we are normally a little before the “rush”…

Turkey And All The Trimmings

Due to our crazy travel before Thanksgiving, we knew we wouldn’t be traveling on the holiday. Wade’s parents were already in Milwaukee and agreed to stay to celebrate with us. Even better that Aunt Emmy could fly in for the week too. We prepared tons of food and ate a nice big Thanksgiving meal. Then…

Headed Home

Today was our last day in Boston. We had an early morning appointment with the plastic surgeon and learned all about eyelid surgery. She definitely recommended doing the eyelid surgery soon (and doesn’t wait till a particular age like we had heard), but wanted to make sure all the swelling from the alignment surgery had…

Surgery – Take Two

Yesterday morning Wade and I noticed that Teague’s eyes seemed uneven. White below one iris was clearly visible on one side and not on the other. It also appeared to us that Teague could only see out of one eye. The other was high enough to be hidden behind the eyelid. Dr. Hunter called to…

Googly Eyes

Wade leaves his mark wherever he goes. Now Boston Children’s Hospital has a couple sets of googly eyes.

The Day After

Teague woke up this morning and it was pretty obvious he can’t really see out of his eyes due to swelling. He was content to hold a hand and be led around as we went out for a little sightseeing. (It never occurred to me to bring the stroller out of the attic for this…

Surgery

Teague was the second surgery of the day and did really well without food or drink all morning. He played in the waiting room and was fine with changing clothes. The nurses were great and provided a gown and cap for monkey too. I got to back with Teague while the anesthesia was given. Then…
