more halloween pictures??????

no but it was kind of scary...today ethan had his cyst over his right eye removed at Phoenix Children's Surgical Center. He did really well, a few tears going to the Center and a few more coming out of his drug induced sleep. he was just disoriented and scared when they had to take out his IV (which was actually in his leg). he has had the cyst since he was born (and before;) and we decided to get it out because the doctor said it can thin the bone underneath and cause a break or if he were to fall on it, it would break and give him an infection etc. so we got it removed. kendall and i were both able to go because we have THE BEST SISTER IN LAW EVER! Elise volunteered herself to watch avery, which was so sweet! thanks so much elise! and avery had a blast, so we are all well. i was nervous about the whole procedure but i was also nervous about him coming out of the anaesthesia because he is prone to throwing up, but he has done really well so far. another part i thought would be hard is he had to be fasting to go. so he ate dinner last night at 6:30 and said he wasn't hungry later so he didn't eat until after the surgery and you know what? he didn't mention being hungry one time! good job ethan! the great news, cosmetically speaking is that most of the incision is in his eyebrown line so that should not draw too much attention...or we'd have to start calling him harry potter:)

before: sorry it's fuzzy...


after: yay for popsicles!

Wow. I'm glad you have all gotten through it! Luke had a mole removed above his eybrow when he was young and the scar is barely noticable...but I do still call him Harry Potter for it!
