Successful Surgery!

Owen had surgery last Friday. He had a cyst on the back of his earlobe. It was about as big as the tip of my pinky finger. I was a little nervous because he had to be put under anesthesia. It lasted about 45 minutes and then he came out all fussy and confused! The picture above was taken at 6 a.m. and you can't tell that guy hasn't had a bottle since 10:30 p.m. Pat had an interview at work, so my mom tagged along with Owen and I. I was really grateful because she remembered everything and asked all the right questions! I think I was a little uneasy due to Lynlee's last hospital visit.

Here's some pictures of the cyst. Sorry these pictures are blurry because I had to take my flash off. Needless to say he didn't stay as still as you need to when the flash is off!

The hole or pierced-looking thing is some kind of pit that the cyst is attached too. It would puss out really stinky stuff, so that's why we had it removed so early. They didn't want that to get infected, because an infection in the cartilage is really hard to fight (or so they say).

Side view. Really hard to see, but I guess that's what happens when your camera is facing up towards the lights!

He loved all the cords and strings attached to him! It definetly kept him busy.

I don't think any other chubby legs have ever looked so cute in a hospital gown! Hopefully we will not have to see either of our kids in a hospital gown again. Once is enough for the both of them. His ear is looking pretty good now. It is still swollen and a little bruised, but he has really been acting about the same.

That morning was eventful for Owen and I starting at 3 a.m. because he just wanted a bottle! But we both had a few naps and felt refreshed for our out of town guest coming in for the Razorback game!

It was Kimberly's birthday Friday. She wanted a spa day for her birthday SO I just had to tag along. Being a best friend is really hard work people! We went all out with a massage, facial, pedicure, and manicure! Does it get better? By the way...if you want a great facial and massage you need to go to Glo in Fayetteville! They were great!

Goofy, greasy picture but HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIMBERLY!!!
