Tonsil Time



Today was the day for Ivy to get her tonsil's removed. She was actually a bit excited-lol. In efforts to not scare her, we kinda down-played the upcoming experience. Katie did tell her this past weekend she would feel bad a couple days...but she was abit unprepared for what was to come.


We arrived at 6am to check in and get prepped. We weren't due in surgery till 7 - we luckily got the first spot of the day, but we did have a bit of time to kill. As you can see - she was not nervous.




She wasn't feeling quite as well - when they brought me back to recovery. She was crying - a typical reaction for some patients waking up from the anesthesia. I guess being a surgical frequent flier myself - has help prepare me for the several surgeries my kiddos have had. I'm at least calm and patient - and can understand what they are going through.



We got home about 9am...talk about fast! She's glad to be home, resting on the couch, snoozing on and off while watching some cartoons.
