Oh my Little E

So surgery came and went.  Do you want to know the two hardest moments...

1. Watching Scott hand over our Little E to the nurse in scrubs and mask on her face and hearing her scream all the way back until they were able to put a mask on her face to put her to sleep.  Knowing how scared the little munchkin was and not being able to do a thing about it.

2.  Seeing a sleepy, out of it little girl who was just a little swollen and a touch of blood on her face be brought back to our room after her surgery.  So vulnerable so helpless.

Honestly, I think we needed to experience this so that we could prepare ourselves for Baby Girl's much more intense, risky and scary surgery in a few weeks. 

My faith is being stretched and my heart feels like it might rip sometimes...  I know its just being taught how to trust in Heavenly Father and His plan.  My babies are his babies.  He loves them more than I do.  He will do what needs to be done.  He will protect them the way they need to be protected. 

Little E did great.  She had a few moments of not wanting ice cream, popsicles or pudding and only want SALAD.  She was down for a few days but after switching her medicine to tylenol/motrin from the narcotic she was right back to herself.  Now she sounds a little bit like a really loud cartoon character.  The Dr. said she won the largest tonsils/adenoids of the day. 

*Isn't this wheelchair the cutest thing you've ever seen


  1. The hospital gowns is precious...we own one just like it from Levi's surgery. Glad everything went so well.

  2. Aren't those gowns so cute!
