The Perfect Patient



Ella had her tubes put in this morning. We were on the road at 5:30 AM to head up to Lawton, OK for her surgery and lucky me it was raining ice. Now for those of you that know me, I am a VERY nervous driver oh yeah and NOT a morning person. So after 3 hours of sleep, the weather and it being pitch black out, by the time I arrived at the surgery center my nerves were already shot.

Ella did wonderful!! They gave her a sedative when we first got there, I changed her into her little hospital gown and they gave her a Dr. Bear. She was hilarious once the medication kicked in. She just kept laughing and rocking back and forth to get me to rock in the rocking chair. The procedure took a whole 15 minutes, the doctor said he cleaned out more fluid than he thought would be in there, so hopefully that is the answer to our hearing test problems!! She woke up nicely from her anesthesia and we were on the road back home by 8:15. She was a little whiny all day and kept laying down on the floor (which NEVER happens!) But otherwise she was great, she loves her Dr. Bear so I thought I would take some pics of her with it. Don't pay any attention to her crazy hat hair : )

Oh wow-Ella is so cute!!!!!! I remember when my daughter got the ear tubes and the medicine kicked in,I thought it was the funniest thing how she was acting all silly- I asked the nurses if we could have some of those meds to take home lol!My daughter got her tubes in two years ago and did great but now she just got 2 ear infections this month so I think she will need to get them again(she sees the ENT next week). Did your ENT say anything about them having to get them more then once, I always thought It was a one time thing.
