Sophie's Surgery!

Last Thursday Sophie had surgery to have her tonsils and adenoids taken out. Her tonsils have been giving her trouble for a couple of months now, and were really enlarged, which made it hard for her to breathe at night. While she was in surgery, her doctor also noticed that she had a lot of fluid in her ears, and decided she needed tubes as well!

All in all she did really well. She almost spent the night in the hospital because her stubborn little personality made it impossible for us to get her to drink fluids while in recovery. Once she was admitted, and took a nap with Mommy, she decided she would start drinking. Her doctor let her go home around dinner time! :-)

Once we got home she did really well, and continued to drink until day 3. Our stubborn little princess almost had to be re-admitted once again because she refused to drink. Luckily, Nana and Papa had the other kiddos for the weekend, so Sophie got lots of one-on-one snuggle time with Mommy and Daddy, and finally decided to drink again! I am finally noticing today that she seems to be almost back to herself. She seems to feel worse in the evenings when she is tired, and she is also fighting a cold (along with her sister and brothers)! Hopefully none of the other kiddos need to have this surgery!

I took the kids to have their hearing tested last Monday, and everyone passed except for Sophie. I am hoping all the fluid is what caused her to fail the hearing test, and that the tubes will correct the problem! I have to take her back in to be tested again in a couple of weeks.

Daddy and Sophie before surgery! Her cute little hospital scrubs were huge on her!
Look at that sweet little face! Once she was in recovery she wanted her Daddy!!

Finally getting some sleep in her comfy hospital bed!
