Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

The reason the Doc recommends having Cody's tonsils & adenoids out is that, they are always swollen, therefore keeping his sinuses and ears from draining correctly. That is why he's always getting sick. Well, I knew that having this operation could help all these problems, and asked the ear doc he had quite a few years ago what he thought... "oh no, that wont help anything, that's just a myth"... I guess we should have gotten a sencond opinion back then, maybe we could have saved Cody from getting a 2nd set of tubes, and a lot of ear/sinus infections!!!! O'well live and learn right. I'm just really glad that this was the 1st thing that he (the new Doc) recommend, after listening to what I had to say. 'It always starts out as cold like symptoms and his ears are the last thing to bother him, and he almost always has to go through 2 cycles of antibiotics before he gets some relief'. Why risk having him become immune to antibiotics (if he hasn't already)? I'm just relieved now. Not keen on Cody having surgery, who is when it comes to their kids? But I really like this Doc, I knew him when I used to work at the ER at the Hospital. I never heard anything bad about him, he always had a good bed-side manner, and his pt's always came out their sx's an did well. So I'm not worried at all. I just wish I could snap my fingers and have it done and out of the way. Mike & I decided to do it now, instead of waiting for Thanksgiving or Christmas break. That way he don't have to be down and out for the holidays, and hopefully will be up and around for Halloween. The recovery time is about 10 days. I know that sounds like a long time to keep him out of school, but with as good as he's doing, we can keep in touch with his teacher & pick up school work for him to do at home, and he should be fine. Maybe, just maybe.... after this surgery, and after his recovery, things will start turning around for us. Things can only get better right? Take care & smile ;0)

Sarah and Jacob were so sad that Cody didn't come today. Sarah kept looking around the house for him and even looked out the window asking "Cody? Where Cody?" So cute!!

We hope he feels better soon though. We hope to make it to Lansing on the 25th for the day so we'll see you then, if not before. :-)
