"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Tanner's tubes are out!

It's been 14 months since Tanner's tubes surgery. He has been ear infection free (minus 1 just recently) the entire 14 months, which was a HUGE deal considering how much he was suffering before he was 9 months old. We went to his ENT appt this week to see the progress. Tanner did such a great job in the waiting room. He played with puzzles and sang just about everyone "Baa Baa Black Sheep!" 
When the doctor looked into his ears, he noticed that the tubes were fully out of the eardrum and on their way out of the ear canal. He went ahead and took us into a different room, where he used a microscope and tool to remove the tubes from his ears. Tanner did amazing, and layed on the table and sucked his thumb! We have the clear to start swimming lessons next week, and are hopeful we will be ear infection free from now on! Great job sweet boy!
