Can You Hear the Screaming in my Head?

Right now, Phil is at the hospital with Xander who is getting his ear tube surgery.  Of course I am nervous for everything to go ok (he will be put under anesthesia) but I am very excited that this minor surgery will cure all of his ear infection problems.  He is our fourth child to need the tubes and they worked wonders for the others. 


Yesterday we found out that Andrew (age 7) can make his First Communion with the second graders on SUNDAY.  Like, this Sunday coming up!  He is thrilled to receive early and then he can train to be an Altar Server with John-Paul.  That means this week we will be going to rehearsal, memorizing a song that all the kid's will sing, drilling the Act of Contrition into his head, and bringing him to his First Reconciliation.  Plus planning a party for the family, of course.

Excuse me while I find a paper bag to breathe into....

  1. Well I hope things go well with the ear tubes.

    My eldest also made her communion in 1st grade on her 7th birthday. Except we asked at the beginning of the year so she/we had some time to prepare.

    Hope you manage this week sounds hectic.

    1. Glad to know other kids that made it "early". I'm a big believer in giving the Sacraments as soon as possible!!

    1. Yes, I would SELL ear tubes if I could...they spare a lot of pain and antibiotics for little babes.

  4. Prayers for your two boys and for you getting all this done this week. ;)

    No doubt it will all come together.

    How fun the boys will be servers together. You must be beaming with pride (good) for them.

  5. oh man..I feel your pain! Been there and done that..except for the tubes. However, since I have 5 kids we have had surgeries of other kinds.

    hope the little guy pulls through fine!

    I am not too worried...you always come through. Just make a list and check it off and breath!
