So Long Tonsils

If you have a minute, say a quick prayer for Anna Lee tomorrow. We visited the ENT a couple of weeks ago, and for many reasons (including the fact that she snores louder than most grown men), it was decided that it is finally time for her to have her tonsils and adenoids removed. So tomorrow is the day. I don't think she has any clue what is coming, as much as we have tried to prepare her for the experience. She knows that she will get to wear a special gown (she asked if it would have princesses on it), and that she will get to drink some "Goofy Juice," as they call it, to make her feel better. (She thinks this "Goofy" refers to the Goofy we watch on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.) We have told her that her throat will hurt later and that she will get to eat popsicles and watch movies this week. Anna Lee is having her surgery in Medical City Hospital instead of a surgery center like they normally would do it in, since she is so young. They have told us to be prepared for her to have to spend the night in the hospital. This will be a little tricky, since I am still up in the middle of the night feeding our other child. My mom is going to help us take care of J.D. during the day (and part of the night) tomorrow.

So say a little prayer for Anna Lee tomorrow if you think about it...and for us too. Even though it is a very common and apparently easy surgery, it still makes us nervous to think about our little one going into the operating room.

Praying that it all goes the very best it can go and that the Lord give you peace and Anna Lee quick healing. said...

Hey guys! I just saw this so I am assuming it is over. How did everyone do? I pray she is healing and not feeling too horrible! Kiss her for me. Love you all!
