Ann-Elise had her ear and tonsil surgery today. We started by getting up before the crack of dawn. One of the joys of NOT living in the bustle of city life is the hour plus it takes to get anywhere like the hospital! Here she is in her "bed" in the back of the car. Notice she's actually still smiling!
The first thing we did at the hospital was check her in. I LOVE the children's hospital that we go to. They are amazing. After they got her admitted, they had her pick a stuffed animal to go through surgery with her. She chose a little Care Bear Bee.
After we go the ok to go to pre OP, we headed down to the basement. We were met down there by her Doctor. Now I LOVE her ENT! She is so sweet. She came over to Ann-Elise and gave her another little gift, a little stuffed bird to take with her as well. Leise cruised through surgery with no problems. After a quick stop in post op, we headed back up to her room. She was zonked out! She would wake up to take a few sips of water and would go back to sleep.
She has been a little sad because she can't eat, but I think she's going to do just fine. Oh, and then when we got home, her buddy Hannah, came over to visit her. This is what she brought...
Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers. I know that things like this aren't really a big deal, but when you are the one going through it, it really is! I appreciate your caring for my family!
