I decided to take a little day trip up to Camp Wood and take lunch to Tyrone, my brother Jacob and my Dad. Of course when we got there they were out hunting again. I put the boys in the back of my dad's truck to let them run around. Clint was running from one end of the truck to the other when he took a nose dive. Here is what his nose looked like by the time we got home four hours later.

What a day

Today Douglas got tubes put in his ears. He did very good. His surgery was at 8:00am and we were out of there at 9:00am. The hardest part was when they came and got us so that we could go back with him after surgery. I could hear him crying. They are very disorineted when they are coming out of anesthia. We are suppose to keep him still today (HA!HA!) Like Douglas every sits still for anything. It helped that we had to drive for two hours. Hopefully this means that he will not as many ear infections as he has had in the past few months.

Clint is doing good. He has not gotten sick and hopefully it stays that way. He did tell us on the way home that he fell off of the toilet while my dad was watching him today. It was sooo funny. We were driving home and out of the blue he says, "I fell off of the toilet." So I asked him when and he said "today." Then Tyrone asked him if his Grandpa pushed him off of the toilet and Clint says "no, the toilet pushed me off." We had a good laugh at that comment. So everyone needs to be careful while on the toilet. Don't let it push you off.

Tyrone is home tonight. He will leave before sunup Wednesday to go hunting again. He will be gone for another week, unless he gets an elk before then. I can't wait till he get his elk so that he can come home to stay. He saw some elk on his way home Monday but because of time he could not take the time to go after them. Maybe this weekend he will get lucky and get his deer and elk at the same time. I know the boys and I really miss him when he is gone although we are thankful that he did get drawn for elk and deer because they provide alot of meat and with the price of food lately it would be very helpful to not have to spend at much on meat as we have been.

head ache

So Douglas fell off of the top bunk of their bunk bed. He hit his head on the way down. We ended up calling the paramedics because he started getting worse so we spent part of the day at the hospital getting ct scans. The fianl diagnosis is a concussion. Here is a picture of what he did to his head.

finally a solution

The last weekend of July Douglas was went to the doctor and we found out that he had a double ear infection. The doctor gave him medicine for 10 days. On the 18th of August when we went in for his 2-year well visit he had a left ear infection and put on a different medicine for four days. Two weeks later he had another double ear infection. Now we are into October and he still has a double ear infection and fluid in both ears. We went and saw the ENT yesterday and he recommended that Douglas get tubes in both ears. So on the 21st of October Douglas will get tubes put in. Maybe it will help hear hear and obey us better (HA! HA!).
