Goodbye Adenoids

Emma had her adenoids removed this week. Needless to say I was a bit nervous about her going under anesthesia, but it ended up being a piece of cake.

She charmed the pants off all the doctors and nurses.

When she went back to the operating room she was SO brave. She laid down on the table, stuck the strawberry mask on her face, held my hands and drifted off to sleep. An hour later she was up and eating popsicles.

We came home and she rested for a little while before she was up and running around again.

I was worried about her being traumatized, but last night she asked to go back to the hospital for surgery again so I guess she's okay ;) I can also tell a huge difference in her breathing and we're hoping it helps with her eating and endless sinus infections :)

Glad to hear that she's doing fine. I'm sure you were more traumatized by it than Emma was!

I hat to see her back in the hospital, but I'm so glad she (and you!) are doing just great.

I'm glad it all went well was somewhat better than you anticipated.
