Ellington finally got tubes this morning! She also had her adenoids reduced. She did GREAT and it really was not anywhere as traumatic as I was expecting! Everything went super smoothly. We had to be at the hospital at 6 a.m. so she was still pretty sleepy in this first picture!
We had heard from another mom whose little girl had this done last week that they got there at 6 and didn't have surgery until 9:15. I was super worried about that because she couldn't eat or drink this morning. So, I decided to borrow a portable DVD player from a friend to hopefully help make the time go a little faster! Thankfully, Ellington was on her way to surgery at 8 so it wasn't too bad at all.
After surgery is suppose to be the worst part because they wake up so groggy and disoriented. Everyone prepared us for the fact that she would be VERY fussy and would cry a lot. Well, sweet Ellington just rocked and slept on me for the most part.
Her lion also went in to surgery with her. I love this little detail because Reagan gave Ellington this lion on her first birthday. Reagan also has a beloved lion who traveled with her to tonsil surgery when she was about 5 years old.
Ellington is napping now and will hopefully be a super happy girl when she wakes up. :) Thanks for remembering us today!
