|Playing while waiting, waiting, waiting...|
They asked the same questions as the other day. Then we went in another room. And they asked the same questions as the other day.
|In "holding" waiting, waiting, waiting...|
|Her hospital gown. It also had shorts. I'm thinking when she's 8 she should fit into it!|
They finally came and got her to take her back for surgery. I hurried to find food. I was HUNGRY! A fruit bowl and rice crispy treat later (breakfast of champions, I tell ya!) I hurried back for Erin to have a turn. Almost as soon as he left, they called me up to the front. They were done! I called him on the phone and he rushed back.
When I got to her side 3 nurses where standing over her. I was afraid something was wrong. Nope, they all thought she was SO cute. One of them asked if they could take her home. I smiled and said something cute, I think. I just wanted to hold my baby. She was awake and chewing on everything.
|They taped her eyes down. That's why they look bruised.|
The doctor came by to talk to us about how the surgery went.
She said...there was NO fluid behind her left ear and only a little bit behind her right ear. I just sat there, stunned. Why did we do this, then? I thought. Why did we subject her to surgery for nothing? I thought.
Good thing Erin was there, because I had stopped listening to her. But she went on to say that now when she fails her next hearing test we'll know for sure that it isn't because of fluids. The only way to know for sure was this surgery.
I don't know how I feel about it all still. It seems rather extreme. But, I'm trying not to focus on that and let time tell.
She came home super hyper. She didn't stop moving all day! But, she is doing really great. Like nothing happened.
Thank you for prayers and kind words.
