Ear Surgery a Success!

Here she is on the way to the surgery center - so happy with her little Lamby thinking she's on an adventure with Mama up so early while it's still dark.

This picture is so cute. Here's where she just kept staring around at everyone but not moving an inch.

"Oh I'm so sleepy after that little nap." So sweet!


Ready to go home!


With her sticker..."I'm a great patient."


Yay! Jordan and Mama are home in time for breakfast. We left at 5:15 this morning, stopped at Starbucks and headed up to Laguna Hills for her procedure. The actual surgery itself took only 10 minutes but the prep and paperwork took over an hour. The doctor said that both ear tubes were out of place and that one of them (the ear she complains about most) was covered with wax and stuck in the ear canal. He said that same ear had quite a bit of fluid too. The better ear, the left ear, didn't have much fluid but the tube was out of that one too. He drained all the fluid, put in new tubes, antibiotic ear drops and then was done. She was so cute when I went in to get her in the recovery room. The nurses were cracking up at her. She was all wrapped up like a burrito and just dazed, trying to figure out where she was. On the way home she was fussing a bit and messing with her ears but overall she's totally fine, watching cartoons with Noah, playing with toys.

So glad God is so faithful! It sounds like this was a relatively pleasant experience and I am so thankful for that for you.

p.s. the latest "walker" video of Jordan is awesome. She's totally getting it down!

Jen,

It's great to hear that the surgery went well:) It does sound like the time at the hospital was similar to when Hope was in for her eyes last year (yep... a lot of paperwork and waiting:) )

Thanks for the update. God is good:)
