Tonsilectomies and what not

Sophie had her tonsils and adenoids out yesterday. The doctor had planned on admitting her for overnight observation (Although I was not aware of this until yesterday morning) BUT She recovered WAY better than expected and was up in bed playing with her toys and eating pudding. So, the doctor came in and said it was up to Bill and I if we wanted to take her home or not. So I brought her home BC I wanted her to be comfortable.

SO, I started my new job at Toys-R-us today and Bill hasn't found a job yet so he was home with her. I was nervous as all hell BC I have been with her every day of her life and now I was going off to work and the day after she has surgery. I expected her to be miserable and sleep all day (they have her on pain meds). HA! I come home at 5 from work and she is running around in a swim diaper and two different socks, That's it. HAHAHA.

Bill said he did everything her could to slow her down but she was so hyper and just wanted to run around and play. The doctor said she has stitches and wanted her on minimal activity for two weeks so as not to pop a stitch but there is no holding this child down! I thank God that she recovered well though!! Now if I could just get her to sleep once and awhile......

Wow, they say the young can bounce back from medical stuff, but she sounds like she is off the chart in bouncing back. I'm glad the surgery was not to hard on her.

Wow she is a ball of energy! Maybe the meds did had an opposite effect! I wonder how doctors expect to keep children at "minimal" activity. I wish they had an answer!

I'm so happy that she recovered so well! Hope she finishes out strong as well!

Mayhem never slowed down when he had his tonsils out. We had to stop at Target on our way home from the hospital to pick up his meds and he was all eager to go look at the toys and explore the movie & games section.
Until the pain meds wore off. That was the only time he wasn't his usual self

She sounds like she's Peyton's twin too! It must be those kids with the damn SPD!! There's no holding her back! I'm glad she recovered so quickly, and good luck with the new job -- it's the perfect time to get employee discounts with Christmas coming!
