Gabby is recovering

We are home from her surgery. I was really worried but it went well. She woke up last night at 10:30 and 2:30. Which was funny because I had my alarm set to wake her to feed since she couldn't have anything past 3am.

She was only crabby from 6:00 to 6:30 when I was getting ready and trying to pump. But they were super nice. All the nurses were great. They treated her wonderfully. Childrens hospital was great! She got in there around 7 changed her and then she got to play with some other kids for awhile. They took her back screaming because i wasn't with her(if she had been older we could have gone back with her). And we wnt to the family room. 15 minutes later she was done.

There was a lot of pus in her left ear. The doc said it was gross and if he thought it was gross it must have been bad. She nursed right away after waking up. And is now sleeping. We have to do ear drops 3 times a day for five days.

Thanks for all the p &pt

Thanks for the update, Jess! I'm so glad it went okay and she is back home recovering with you. It sounds like it was definitely the right choice if there was still so much fluid in her ear. Poor baby. Here's hoping she is done with ear infections!

So Glad to hear everything went so well! I'm sure the whole ordeal was really stressful. We've never dealt with an ear infection, so I can't even imagine. Hopefully you won't have to deal with any sickness for a while now!

THanks ladies. here are the details about the surgery on my blog. http://jessica-mike.blogspot.com/2011/06/gabbys-first-surgery.html

Gabby is doing wonderfully. she didn't sleep the greatest, but it wasn't an awful night either, so not bad all in all. it actually gave me time to put her ear drops in early this morning so daycare only has to do it one time....which will make me not stress as much.

She was crawling all over the house this morning and we definiately have a mover on our hands!
