Friday was a big day for us - Amelia got tubes and Cadence started First Grade. I had to be at the hospital with Amelia at 6am, so Mike ended up taking Cadence to school her first day. I have to download the pictures from his camera, but he said she got up great, didn't give him any problems getting dressed, and she says she had a great first day. She likes her teacher, and will actually have to work this year - more homework and spelling tests every week (starting Thursday!!) I'm curious to see how the year goes with her actually having to study some, and hope the rest of the year is as good as the first few days have been!
Amelia did wonderfully on Friday, and did really well with not getting to eat after midnight. She woke about 2am and was fussy, and couldn't quite understand why I wouldn't nurse her. But when I woke her again at 5:15, she was fine. We got her checked in, and about 6:30-6:45 they took us back to a room and had me put a baby hospital gown on her. I met with her ENT, Dr. Clay, and the anesthesiologist, then the nurse came to take her back about 7:30. Mike showed up shortly there after, and as he was walking in, Dr. Clay was coming out to tell me she did great. The entire procedure took less than 10 minutes. They warned me that she might be angry after waking up, but she was more upset about not getting to eat than anything else! She fussed some until I fed her, then after that she was fine. They released us, and she came home that afternoon and slept for 4.5 hours.
Last night was the first night that her sleeping has improved -10:30pm-7am with a brief wake up about 3 because she lost her nookie - but she's become a chatterbox since Friday. She's now talking nonstop, and is SO much happier. I'm so so so glad we did it!
