We are heading over to Adventist Hospital early in the morning so that we can be checked in by 7 am. Maddie Rae's surgery to close her soft palate and insert tubes in her ears is scheduled for 10 am. We are praying for a successful surgery and recovery, and that the pain, trauma, and fear would be as minimal as possible for her. It's such an awful experience when I have to walk into that operating room with her and watch them put her under. It's equally as awful when they bring her out screaming her head off and totally traumatized as she comes out of the anesthesia. I have some special new toys and soft baby foods packed. As soon as she's eating and drinking on her own, she'll be able to come home. I'll update as soon as I can.
