It's All Good

Well, everything went GREAT today.

We got to the surgery center at 6:30 a.m.

We signed in and got Katie dressed in this cute baby hospital gown.

We signed our lives away, filling out a million forms, and then Katie was taken back for surgery at 8:00 a.m.

I got to be with her until she fell asleep, then they sent me back to the waiting room through a maze of corridors.

By the time I wound my way back, it was over and the doctor was coming out to tell us that it couldn't have gone better. Yea.

Katie was a great patient, and NEVER even cried, not once!

Hopefully she will continue to get better and start sleeping. We are looking forward to that!

And just for kicks, a little Troyism:

As we were leaving the nurse asked us if Katie was always such a good natured baby.

We told her that she was. It's hard not to be mellow when you are the youngest of six!

So we got to talking about having babies and whatnot, and Troy says, "Yeah, I didn't recover as quickly from this baby as I had from the others."

That just cracked me up!

I'm so glad that things went well with Katie. I didn't know that men have a recovery period after childbirth :)

I'm glad things went well. I'm sure it's a relief to have it over with. I hope she starts sleeping soon! Troy's comment was so funny! I can only imagine the recovery he must be going through!

I just found your blog, I figured you might have one so I went searching, and here you are! Sounds like a very long day with the baby. I'm glad it went well. I can't believe how big the kids are! I should, because mine are big too! I'll be checking in to watch your family grow, feel free to see mine too! Would love to hear from you!

Glad she's okay.

And I think we should make our girls weekend a little longer- wouldn't want Troy to recover too quickly from it.

Hoping that the tubes do the trick for your Katie. I had tubes twice.
