Her cheeks look huge in this picture!
Audrey's tube surgery this morning went fine.  Whew!  It wasn't the most fun.  We had to be there at 6:30 am so no extra sleep for us.  Tim dropped Barrett off at daycare and met me at the hospital.  It was a quick procedure, only about 10 minutes, and she handled it like a champ.  Everyone was gushing about how cute she was and how great she was doing.  No crying!  It helped that Tim got up to feed her at 3am, the latest she could eat, and she is not a voracious eater, so wasn't bothered in the least by the lack of food. 

I know tubes aren't that big a deal and kids get them all the time.  But to anesthetize a 3 month old is a little scary for her mom and I was nervous!

It also brought home the fact of how scary her palate surgery is going to be.  From my understanding, it's about a 2-3 hour surgery, with 2 nights in the hospital, and a terrible recovery.  I know I'll be a mess for that one! 

For today, we're taking it easy.  We're enjoying having the 2 year old in daycare and all enjoyed nice naps this afternoon.  Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for our little girl!


  1. I'm so glad to hear this, Megan! Everything is "routine" until it is your child, you know? Hope you guys have a great weekend of relaxing!

  3. (Oops on that deleted comment--boo for misspellings) Yay for a smooth surgery! I hope they make as big of a difference for her as they did for Grant. She looks so cute in her little surgery hat--love the baby sweetness!
