Maddy got tubes in her ears this morning at Mary Bridges Children's Hospital. We had to be there at 8am and it took a while to get all prepped and ready for surgery. After meeting with the doctor and the anesthesiologist they took Maddy back around 9:30am. Ted had a meeting at 10 that he couldn't cancel so he had to leave, but I was SO glad that my friend Jenn could come stay with me while we waited for the surgery to be over and to help with Maddy once she was done.
The whole surgery and recovery only took about 30 minutes and then I was able to be reunited with Maddy. She did not wake up from the anesthesia well and was crying and very upset for quite a while. We were released shortly after and she did much better at home minus some nausea from the medicine. By the afternoon she was back on track eating and playing.
She loved the Mr. Potato Head at the hospital so she and I went out this afternoon to get her one of her own as a reward. Hopefully we won't have any more surgeries for a very long time because it was WAY too stressful!
