When my son was 1 he fell into his grandma's coffee table and we had to get stiches in his eye brow. At the emergency room they gave him a Teddy Bear while they stiched him up. So, Teddy Bear got the name "Stitch" which always stays in his bed. Then at 3 he had to have his tonsils removed and received another bear, which recieved the name "Tonsi" and this bear too has styed in our sons bed everynight to sleep with.

Both my children had surgery yesterday; my son tubes put in his ear and my dd tonsils and adnoids removed. Both received a new bear and we named our dd's bear "Addy" for Adnoids but we still haven't come up with a name for my sons new bear for the Tubes put in his ear. As you can see we kind of name them after the surgery that was performed. Any ideas for a name for tubes put in the ear?


What can I do next?

How about Eustace (for eustachian tubes)? You could nickname him "Eusty" as in "I eusty (used to) have owie ears, but now I have tubes so they don't hurt."
