Home from surgery

So, the surgery is over, and we're home! Little Missy was amazing!! The worst part was waiting to go in...she hadn't had any drugs or any food in about sixteen hours, and of course, they took her in late. So, after two and a half hours of trying to keep a hungry, tired, cranky two-year-old under control, we were both ready for this thing to bed done.

Here we are watching Elmo on the portable DVD player in the pre-op room. (She REFUSED to wear the hospital gown!!)

And she looked at books for about 3.1 seconds...
She hated those ID bracelet!
This one is after surgery (which only took about 15 minutes.) She was crying a lot while waking up from the anesthesia because she was so disoriented. It was sad.


They kicked us out of the hospital just over an hour after her surgery was complete. What's with that these days?! She hasn't puked like they said she would even after having a popsicle and a huge cup of juice. Here's what she's doing now...

It was also super duper sad having to starve her this morning. She kept crying and saying, "Mommy, I'm so hungry!" and "Mommy, I NEED a cereal bar." Almost had me in tears.
Overall, things went well, and we're hoping for a speedy recovery. Thanks for your prayers!!
