Anyway bright and early this morning I learned the 5-7 minute procedure that I was expecting like when Noah got his tubes was not going to happen. Apparently it is alot more involved when you remove someones adenoids and that takes 25-30 minutes. Yes, that is a huge deal. And for those that think it isn't.....when it is your baby, it totally is. Anytime it is anything having to do with one of your babies it is a VERY BIG FREAKING DEAL. Can you tell I have been harboring some feelings on people trying to blow off my concerns and worries about the surgery?
We headed home about an hour and half after the procedure where she napped some more and then watched movies for the rest of the day. She didn't shed a tear all day, until the lady pulled the tape off her arm to remove her "princess glove" or IV and then again when we were home and she was told to share her balloon with her brother. Other than that not a single tear all day!
She was a much better patient than I ever would have been. Even Dr. H commented on what a brave girl I had. She totally does not get that from me, I guess that is more of Josh in her. Although I will be the first to admit my girl is 98% her momma and 2% her daddy. I'm glad she got some of his courage when it comes to medical procedures. Maybe she will grow up to be a doctor like she wants.
I have no idea when she got so big and brave? When she decided she could face some of the world on her own...she's growing up and although it pains me that it is happening too fast, I love the little girl she is growing up to be.
My brave big girl getting ready for her tubes.
And although she was such a big girl going back with the nurse and CRNA. I was happy she came back looking more like my baby and sleeping soundly.
