First though, thanks again for all the name input (and yes, mom, you do get to contribute, but only in an advisory capacity, like the kids and everyone but Mike and I) – it really helps to see what others’ opinions are, especially with the Virgil thing – sheesh!
Emmett’s surgery went well, and he should be able to come home tomorrow. Although the aftercare for this one is going to be a party – 2 diapers at once, one with holes cut in it and all taped up, a penis that looks incredibly painful with a big tube sticking out of it for a week, no bathing for a week, and the worst part – no exersaucer, jumper or being held in a baby carrier that has fabric between his legs for 6 to 8 WEEKS.
The exersaucer and jumper are things that the poor kid actually enjoys, which is not the norm around here I tell you.
Poor Emmett. Poor Lauren. Because when Emmett’s not happy, mama ain’t happy, which leads to …poor Mike.
By the way, Noah and Sawyer laughed their heads off when they heard that Emmett has a tube coming out of his ding-dong. Even when I asked how they would feel if it was their privates that had tubes coming out, they still thought it was hilarious. Goofballs.
