Adenoids and Tonsils and Tubes, Oh My!

So I'm hanging out in the hospital with Ella today.  She had her tonsils and adenoids out this morning and tubes put in her ears.  She's been a total trooper about it.

The first thing she said was to ask for the stuffed bear they gave her before she went into surgery.  Then while she was half asleep she was signing "I love you" to me.  It was so cute.

She threw up a couple times and hasn't said much, but she also says that she's not in any pain, so that's good.

Anton and Alex came and visited her after lunch and brought our little DVD player.  I told her she could watch her movie after Daddy and Alex left, and she started waving goodbye to them.  What a nut!

So now this is how she's been sitting for over an hour:

Puke bowl under the chin, and Barbie on the DVD player.  All is good with the world.  

They're keeping her overnight since she had such an obstructed airway from her adenoids, but I'm going to switch off with Anton for that.  There's no way I'm going to play nursemaid all day tomorrow after having to sleep in a hospital recliner.  No thanks!

So that's the excitement in our little neck of the woods.  We'll keep you all posted on how she's doing!

Sweet, brave girl! Good luck to all of you in the coming recovery week.

Poor kid. I had my tonsils and adenoids removed when I was 5. I remember being really out of it. I also remember the little plastic furry toy they gave me. It was pretty cheap, because the glue that kept the fur on stopped working soon after. It was gross.
Weird the things you remember.
Hope Ella feels better. Big hugs from me, even though I'm sure she has no clue who I am.
