Poor Bug

Today Bug is having surgery.  She is tongue tied and they are taking care of it today.  She has to have it done at a surgery center because she is too old to do it in the office.  :-( 

It is not something we are looking forward to.  It is never easy to see little ones in pain especially when you are "causing" it. 

She handled it pretty well and only cried a little bit when they carried her back but oh my heart was breaking knowing that I couldn't be there for her.

On the upside, it was the same surgery center where our 10 yo had her sinus surgery so we were pretty comfortable with them.  It's still terribly hard though.

She looked so tiny on that gigantic bed.
She came through surgery well but the bleeding was more than I thought it would be.  It was hard seeing her in pain and not being able to help.  She just didn't understand what was going on.

When we got home she was super cranky, understandably, and almost inconsolable.  There were moments when you couldn't tell she had just had surgery but on the whole she was a cranky pants! lol  Oh and the drooling.  Oh my goodness.  I have never seen so much drool come from one body in my life! 

Thankfully we bought extra food that was soft and lots of yogurt and pudding.  She wants to eat but won't eat any hard foods.  It is so sad. 

I will be glad for her when she can eat any food she wants to again.  Praise God the surgery went well.  We can't wait to see how her speech changes now.  :-)
