Operation: Ear tubes in, adnoids out
Our day began early, we checked in at the hospital at 0730. Before the sedative, Eva was very anxious and grumpy, not wanting to wear her gown and eager to throw fits. The following pictures show what transpired after she was given a sedative.
It's starting to kick in: mommy I feel funny.
Maybe I'll try on that headgear and moonboots.
After the operation, which was fairly quick, she cried and her nasal passages were very congested. The nurse said all the children cry after surgery. But on the way home Gabe decided to lighten the mood with a little trick called: watch me try and shove my foot in my mouth. (no edits, Gabe performs all his own stunts)
Later that afternoon the doctor called to see how she was doing. This was a rare and very nice gesture which Lindsey especially appreciated after receiving less than hospitable service during previous hospital visits. Eva has to go back in tomorrow morning as a final check up.
