Tubes for Lily Bean
The surgery was a success, although an overtired and slightly flakey Mommy gave her apple juice 2 hours before the surgery and completely bumped her another 2 hours later as we waited for her to get it out of her system. It probably wasn't that great of an idea to have the surgery scheduled 2 days after we got back from vacation...my brain obviously was still in North Carolina. By the time I went and got myself a cup of coffee, the surgery was over and doctors said she did just fine. Coming out of the anesthesia is a completely other story. We are STILL feeling the ramifications of it today. Let's just say she is going to be one lousy drunk in college---baby girl was ANGRY. And for the past two days, she's been grumpy, hardly sleeping and irritable. Her nap today gave me some hope, as it was her usual 1-3pm rest, without much disruption. I'm looking forward to taking her to her to Georgetown Cupcake, her favorite spot and using the gift card that her Nana and Papa sent her when she feels better!
Christian was the concerned big brother, asking if she was going to the hospital where he got his CI put in, wondering what type of popsicle she got to have, and telling her that she "Is doing such a good job" when we are putting her antibiotics in.
