Levi's surgery

Normally we eat apple pie and pizza to celebrate Tax Day, but this year Levi celebrated by having surgery ~ a 4 hour outpatient procedure to repair a hole in his inner ear. They did a great job and he is recovering well. Because of the size of the hole, they had to take skin from behind his ear (to use as the inside patch). So, he's now sporting 19 very impressive stitches just behind his ear. He's had a great attitude about having to wear a strange contraption around his head and refrain from many of his favorite activities (which would include nearly everything except for lying down and standing still!). He isn't even allowed to blow his nose!, so I'm trying to be a good sport about not constantly reminding him to =) The kids were so excited when he arrived home, he got a bit bombarded right when he walked in the door. We had to pull them away, so he could eat some applesauce and head to bed!
