We really appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers today for Hayes! She did very well despite not knowing what was going to happen to her. She of course screamed when they tried to weigh her, listen to her breathing, and all the easy stuff. She does not like anyone to mess with her and she will let you know it very quickly!! After a few minutes of playing w/their toys, the nurse let us walk her back to the monkey doors to drop her off. When we handed her over, she screamed her little head off all the way down the hallway!
We got back to the room and about 2 minutes later the doctor was already calling telling us they were going to take out her adenoids, they were huge and swollen. So really by the time we walked back down the hall and to her patient room, they had put her to sleep, put her tubes in, and had already determined her adenoids need to be out, SOOOOO fast. So they did an IV and gave her more anesthesia. That was probably the theme of our visit to Children's in the last 2 days-efficiency! Everyone does their job really well and quickly. I guess when you're working w/children you have to do things fast!
So we came home this morning and she slept all day until around 3:00. She only woke up for about 30 minutes to eat and then went back to sleep. She had so much medicine in her I didn't think she would ever wake up. But when she did wake up, she was happy and by late this afternoon she was back to her old self. I was missing my little sidekick all day while she was napping but I did enjoy some free time.
We had a wonderful experience at Children's South-the staff, rooms, playroom, snacks, doctors, short wait times, helpful people, giving instructions, etc. EVERYTHING about being there was very positive and we're so thankful to live so close in case we ever need them again (but hopefully not:) Thank you again to everyone for remembering her today. God is so good and faithful and we know He was the one taking care of our little baby today through all the doctors and nurses, and through our praying friends!
And now we are all going to bed early at our house-Good Night!
