Laying More Stones

Last year I wrote about Ebenezer Stones....raising stones of remembrance...

Well, here's another one!  

Corey's pathology report came out Benign!

The surgery went well.  Corey was a little nervous on the way into the hospital, but we tried to keep him occupied...while every other kid in out patient surg was screaming their little bloomin heads off!  (first thing we did was put on the headphones and play some of his favorite songs)

Eventually, even the music and games that we brought couldn't contain the little fingers of fear from creeping in.  When in doubt, take a like a charm!

Jim made fun of me for bringing the camera...he really was kind of annoyed when I pulled it out of camera bag ;)  so, I took a super flattering pic of him.
Really though, best idea ever...he was such a ham!  Posing for the camera with his new sonic stuffed animal and his picture that he drew for the doctor!
Well, maybe not a total fix...still a little nervous...
Ok, now it's a little better ;)   Just needed a little bit of a mama snuggle!
The nurses were so sweet!  Everyone was kind and took their time to really talk To Corey.  They even had these cute little fabric hats that someone had made instead of the paper surgery hair nets.   He still wears this around the house!  
The whole deal took like 20 min!  They ended up taking out the lymph node and sending it to pathology.   Corey woke up great from his anesthesia..which was a huge concern of mine (just another thing to show me that I don't have to be so protective of him..he is a good kid and is getting so big!).  The recovery nurse said that he was so polite!  He thanked everyone over and cute :)   We truly are blessed to have such a support system of friends and family!

So, one more thing to check off the list!  

Glad that we got it done and over with and now we can focus on the next big thing...duhn duhn duhnnnnnnn...
