Tonsils No More.....

Yesterday was the big day. Madeline and Meredith both had their tonsils and adenoids removed. They were so brave and I am quite proud of them. They were nervous which is totally understandable. Hey, I cried before I had my wisdom teeth removed! ;) As I sat between their two *beds*, looking from one to another, I couldn't help but remember the last time I had done that. I told them that when they were born, I will never forget after all that I had been through, and finally able to sit in my hospital bed and look from one side to another and there they were.....my two little girls! That brought a slight smile to their faces. They were also thrilled to be able to pick out which flavor *gas* they got to smell before dozing off. Meredith went first and we waited with Madeline until her turn. I got to see the tonsils! They were HUGE!!!! The dr said that we made the right decision to have them removed and this should help with the strep incidents and snoring! I think they are going to sleep so much better at night and feel alot more energetic. When Madeline came to in the recovery room, she sat up immediately and looked around and said "is it done, is it done"! I was happy to be able to tell her that "yes honey, it is DONE"!!!!

Are their tonsils almost a distant memory? How did they recover?

You deserve another spring break.
