Surgery was a success!!

We woke up at 4:30 AM to get ready to take Madi to the hospital for her ear surgery. She slept until we left at 5:15. She slept on the way and through registration. Then, she woke up HUNGRY at 6:30. She cried (hard) from 6:30-8:00. Then, she fell asleep in my arms.

The doctor came in about 8:15 and they took her back to surgery. It only took about 30 minutes. He got both tubes in! :) Yay, God!! The doctor said that the right ear was super easy and took 5 minutes to cut, clean out, and insert the tube. The left ear was badly infected and was inflamed even on the outside, so he had a much harder time with that one, but he took his time and got a good cut, lots of fluid out, and got the tube inserted. :)

She woke up a happy girl! THEY LET HER EAT! She has been happy all day ever since. She woke up a little loopy and kept looking with her head tilted to one side. Too funny. She took a 4 hour nap and is now up playing, laughing, and just super happy. I hope this is a glimpse of things to come.

Thanks to everyone for all their prayers and well-wishes.
Here are some pics from today.
