10 Days

Wow! Where has the summer gone? Is it really almost August?! We have been so busy and it seems like its go go go all the time in our house. On July 7 Georgia had her tonsils and adenoids out and tubes put in her ears. She did a wonderful job and she was so brave! She kept asking everyone after the surgery to look and see if they were still there :-) Upon our initial visit with the ENT they told us to expect her to be down two weeks. I laughed out loud (in my head) thinking, yeah right, this is a routine deal, two or three days tops. Well, as luck wouldn't have it, I was wrong. This poor thing was down and out for ten, yes TEN days. She isn't particularly a fan of Popsicles or anything mushy so getting her to eat was also a challenge. We were able to get her to drink and that was a saving grace. My mom came and stayed the entire week following the surgery so Jonathon and I could go back to work and that was a God send. Im pretty sure she has more patience than I do bc the whole process of medicine and food was just awful. Ugh. I am glad this is not something we have to do again. Georgia really was a trooper and hardly cried she was just so pitiful. Seeing my spunky vivacious girl down and out is not something I ever want to see again.
On day ten and as luck would have it, the day before Mom went home, she felt better. ALL BETTER. She went from virtually not eating to eating anything she could get her little sweet hands on. We had Cantina Laredo on the way to the airport and of course she tore up a quesedilla and some cheese dip :-) Obviously now it has been a little over two weeks and she is back to her old self with the exception of a really high pitched squeaky voice that sounds like she sucked all the helium out of a balloon. The doctor said it was temporary but I dont know....It did not improve her singing voice ;-)
For the first time in her short 3.5 years my baby is sleeping and resting. For those of you who don't know, she snored like a grown man. FOR REELZ. I have found myself walking in the room while she is sleeping and putting my hand on her chest just to see if she is breathing. She is and she is sleeping soundly. Now, Zane has taken up snoring...or maybe he snored all along and we just couldn't hear him for Georgia lol. Either way, I am so glad it helped! The doctor said her airways had 60 percent blockage. Poor kid.
I would like to say a belated thank you to every single one of my friends and family who were here for us/her during this procedure. I can't imagine what it would be like if it were something more serious lol because seriously you guys, this little girl is BLESSED!!! Thank you so much to everyone who visited the hospital and helped out along the way, for the stuffed animals, the balloons, the books, the flowers, the activities, the movies, the snow cone maker (no kidding), the new pajamas, the food care packages, the cards she got in the mail, the phone calls, the texts and the love, hugs and kisses. You guys are amazing and I was truly humbled by the outpouring of love over some tonsils!
Today we are going to church for the first time in four weeks and man we have missed it! I am excited! Also, I plan on trying to catch up on this blog, while simultaneously doing housework...because if nothing else I am a multi-tasker. Have a wonderful Sunday! XOXO
