Nacho's Surgery

The Nacho's surgery to get tubes in her ears was this morning and everything went well. After being an OR tech for many years, that surgery didn't bother/worry me at all. That is, it didn't worry me until Reid. I knew how minor this procedure is, but she still would be going under anesthesia, and right now I have very little confidence in the human body. But, the Nacho made it though with flying colors. She was the star of the show at the surgery center. All the doctors and nurses LOVED her! And even waking up from anesthesia she was all smiles. We are home now and I finally got her down for a nap. I figured after having surgery in the morning that she would sleep for the rest of the day, but NOPE! She has been wound up all afternoon. Surgery?? What surgery???

Hopefully we start to see an improvement in her speech development. And hopefully we also have no more ear infections! I am looking forward to not stressing out every time she has a runny nose. Because let's face it, she is a toddler in group day care, she always has a runny nose.

We started the morning in a completely empty, yet gigantic, waiting room. She liked the bean bag chairs.

Then we were called back to the pre-op area, where Nacho thought she was the one in charge!

We got home and she finally got to eat. Post-surgery pancakes. YUM!

Several hours late, she finally gives in and takes a nap.

Welcome Baby Reid

I wish this was an exciting, let me announce my brand new, healthy nephew kind of post. Unfortunately, it is not. For those of you that haven't heard, my sister's first child, Reid, was born early Sunday morning and is now in the NICU fighting for his life. The last few days have been exhausting and we are all struggling to stay positive. I have started a Care Page in order to keep everyone updated on Reid, so instead of retyping the whole story here, I will just give you the link to his page. PLEASE keep Reid, my sister, and her husband in your prayers!

Quick Update

The Nacho just got back from a visit with her Mimi and Nana in Oklahoma. She was there from Friday through Wednesday. I know she had a good time, and I am glad she got some good bonding time in with her grandmaothers, but I missed her SO much! It was almost too long a time to be away from her.  And then, thanks to the bad weather, D had a heck of a time getting up to Durant to meet his mom and get her back. What should be been a 3 hour trip turned into an almost 7 hour trip. I felt so bad for him, and wanted to fix it, but there was nothing I can do.

We have our 12 month well baby and follow up for our most recent ear infection on Monday. That's when we will get the referral to the ENT so we can get her surgery scheduled. I am ready to get these tubes so hopefully my Nacho can get healthy and stay healthy for once. I am DONE with the ear infections!
