Tubes: A Success

It turns out getting tubes is about as easy as everyone said it would be. The girls were so brave and did great. Hopefully we are on the road to NO more ear infections...

Pre-surgery play time at the surgery center. Can we get tubes every day?

Sophie went first, and when she left the room Campbell started crying and pointing at the door saying "sister, sister." Melted my heart. :(

I've said it once and I'll say it again, Sophie is one tough cookie. After meeting her and the nurse in recovery, she was groggy and kinda fussy. However after rocking her for a few minutes, she fell right back asleep for about 15 minutes, started to wake up and heard Mickey Mouse clubhouse in the background, sat up and started dancing to the music while drinking her milk. No lie! Never would have guessed she had anything done.

Poor CJ. She had a really rough time waking up from the anesthesia. She cried and squirmed while half awake for about 20 minutes. It was awful. I finally handed her over to Kyle as it was tough to keep switching positions with her with my big belly. She finally passed out (as did Daddy) for a bit after. 

By that afternoon, we were playing in the backyard and back to our crazy selves. Overall, we were so proud of our brave girls and how well they did!
