What Goes Up Must Come Down...

And what goes in Nathan must come out...

On Nathan's timetable.







Which is why we are again at Primary Children's in the waiting room by the OR having operation number 20.

Oh Nathan, why did you have to pull through this last surgery so well and with such a zest for life and energy that you have never had before? Why did you have to be a normal 2 year old and do a face plant into the carpet last Tuesday? Were you just trying to prove to the ENT's that you are the boss? Or did you know that this has never happened to a child under all of the current ENT's care where they have to replace the whole distractor? Only 2x prior in Dr. Muntz's memory has a child had to have a distractor replaced and these were only the top pins. Once on a newborn and once on a 7 year old. You have again outdown them all!

I just wish that you weren't so gosh darn happy about it!
