Elijah's Prognosis...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He's scheduled for surgery on March 15th to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. We've been pretty straight with him about the fact that it's going to hurt for a while, but that he'll be able to sleep better and feel better in the end. He keeps trying to see his tonsils in the mirror and doesn't seem too worried. Dr. Pruden, his ENT, has an awesome office so that made him feel better. The examining table is a fire truck and there are Sesame Street characters painted all around the room. They also have a Buzz Lightyear room with a rocket ship table. He has already reserved that room for our next visit.

Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
