Ear Tube Eve

We've had a gloomy rainy week, and it doesn't look like it will let up anytime soon. Gotta love April showers!
Jax had a pukey morning last Tuesday, and I ended up giving him a gut rest for the day with a Pedialyte pump. He's been fine since and back on his food. It's so odd when his tummy acts up like that.
Tomorrow Jax will get a tube placed in his right ear. So tonight we're on the pre-op protocol of no food/fluids past such a time. I'm sure the procedure will go very fast tomorrow since Jax isn't have his tonsils or adenoids out. I know the worst part will be trying to find a vein to get an IV started... ugh, I'm dreading that part. Jax hasn't had anesthesia for over 2 years, so I'm really anxious to see how he responds to it. His gut used to shut down from it, and he'd be a vomiting mess in the hospital. The nurse said he will only be under for around 10 minutes, so hopefully it doesn't affect him. Send out a quick prayer for him tonight if you have a spare, thanks!
