Tubes & Teething: Someone up there has quite a sense of humor...

You will all be happy to here that I did not jump on the gurney when they wheeled my son off to surgery on Friday.  Actually, I barely had time to shed a tear, or read the first page of my People magazine before they were back with a crying, maniac in my arms.  The procedure went great, however, my little man is not a big fan of waking up from anesthesia with a bunch…
