Today was an interesting day. Thanks for taking us along. We always miss you when you are gone and were glad we got to help make you feel better. We were with you every step of the way today as you got something put in your ears. We think we heard your mommy call them ear tubes. Don't really know what that means, but I don't think you liked it so much. Here's what happened. We drove really far. You held us tight the whole way there. Thanks for that - sometimes we get scared in the car! Then we got out and went into this room. And guess who was there??? Grammy and Pa, Mamaw and Papaw and Aunt Rachie. Of course mommy and daddy too! Big bro didn't come - he got to go play at Aunt Susan's house. So when we got to the room they called your name and we had to go to another place. Your mommy and daddy came too. This lady tried to put something green on your leg and you didn't like it at all. Then, mommy gave you some red medicine. You started getting pretty sleepy and even a little - no a lot! giggly. But the best part... you were super snuggly. You wouldn't let go of us for anything! Your mommy and daddy read us some books and sang some cool songs. Then these people came and got us. We went to a different room without mommy and daddy. We were so scared! But not you - you, our best buddy, were so brave. Then you fell asleep. The doctor came in and worked on your ears a little. It didn't take very long and we were really curious and worried about you. Guess what happened then??? The nurse put some band aids and a mask thingy on us so you would know we were there the whole time! We look super cool. Then, it got kind of interesting. They took us back to the first room and you were still pretty sleepy. Your mommy and daddy came back there and you kind of went crazy. We've known you your entire life and haven't ever seen that from you before. You were screaming and throwing things and practically jumping out of your mommy and daddy's arms. You didn't really even want to hold us. But we understood. Everyone said it was just the medicine and you'd be fine in a few minutes. Well, about 30 minutes later, you were okay. Still grumpy, but at least you talked to us a little. And you got dressed and your mommy and daddy took you outside. We were so worried about you today, but you showed us how to be brave and how to pray to Jesus when we feel scared. We'll definitely be doing that next time we feel afraid. Big Buddy, we sure are glad you chose us to be your friends. We promise that we will love you forever!
Your best pals, Bear and Monkey
