The tubes are in!

6:30 a.m. "Road trip in my pajama's with my Elmo video, what could be better?"
7:10 a.m. "My mom & my dad, all to myself...awesome....Addy, who?"
8:05 a.m. "Hey mom, these nurses and doctors around here LOVE me!"
8:30 a.m. "What the hell?"
Lilly's tubes went in yesterday morning. The torture of starving my child with no food or drink for 12 hours wasn't as bad as I thought. We had to arrive at 7 a.m. and the surgery was at 8:15. I dreaded not giving in to her sippy of milk addiction first thing in the morning, but with all the attention she was getting, she gratefully forgot about missing a meal. The morning started out quite nice actually. The aftermath, was literally awful. 90 minutes of non-stop crying, thrashing, totally inconsolible as the antistesia wore off. It was awful to endure and thankfully when it was over, it was like a switch went off and she was done. Now it's over, I'm just thankful we didn't have to do it for both of them! Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes!

I'm so glad it went well. She looks like she was having a pretty good time there...for a while! That last picture breaks my heart but I'm sure it was harder on you and Jeremy. Hopefully this will be the end of ear infections!!
