Successful Surgery

Friday, October 24 Emory was able to have tubes put in her ears. We arrived at the surgery center at 7:30 which may sound early, but trying to keep a baby occupied with having anything to eat or drink since dinner the night before is NOT fun. We were taken back very quickly and things went fairly quickly from then on. Emory might not have thought so, hence the tears in the picture below.
She was in surgery for literally 15 minutes before she was right back to us. At first she was very groggy, but quickly became very angry while coming out of the anesthetic. Not much could comfort her for about 30 minutes. She didn't want to be talked to, be fed, sung to, got tired of her juice, and so on and so on. She just flat out wanted to be MAD! Here's a picture of her finally getting calm with a cracker. We were on the road heading home by 9:00.
Since the surgery, Emory has been great. She is sleeping better, 11-12 hours a night. She has only done that a handful of times since she was born. Her appetite has also increase. She has always been a good eater of particular foods, but lately she has been finishing off her meals and still asking for "mo." I pray the tubes will help her stay healthy this year. I know there will still be sick times, but if we stay out of the dr every other week then we'll be doing good!
I love my spaghetti-o's!!!
