Tatum got her tubes yesterday -
In the am things were Great! Tatum did very well with no food or drink. She was the hit of the show at the Dr office. All the nurses commented on how cute she was and how she was such a "big girl!" She walked back to pre-op all by herself, we did not have to carry her or calm her. She walked back to the surgery room all by herself waving bye to mommy and daddy and then 20 minutes later ... she was PISSED OFF!! Dr said she would be mad, but man was she mad. She was screaming and screaming - I think all in all she did not calm down for the first 1 hour after the surgery - then I got her to sleep and she was out from about 9am - 12:15 she was only up to eat and drink then right back down for another nap. She went to bed after dinner and I had to wake her up this am for school. She was her happy self this am! I hope that things will start to get better now!

Some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

She is SOOO cute! I love the little hospital gown! The picture of you & her is precious! I can remember my nephew waking up REALLY mad from that surgery, but then things were ok. I'm glad Tatum came through it all ok!! Those tubes really do help!

Reading together is not only a learning activity that develops children's language and listening skills and prepares them to be better readers, but it also provides a wonderful time for children to spend and enjoy with their parents listening to their voices while looking into their eyes. As parents, we should aim at reading with them as often as we can at least once every day and at choosing age appropriate materials that also match their interests.

Yay! I am so glad to hear that the surgery went well. I remember when Josh had his eye surgery when he was 10 months old and he was the same way! I bet you will notice a drastic improvement really soon.

You look great in the picture too!

So glad Tatum got through it Kim! I remember how angry Caroline was when she woke up from getting her tubes in too. I'm keeping her in my prayers...
