Down the Tubes

Harper had tubes put in her ears today. We had to be at the clinic at 7 a.m. I just let her go in her pj's. The hardest part of the whole ordeal was that she couldn't have anything to eat or drink after midnight. That's not a huge deal except (and please don't leave me a comment saying I'm a bad mom/shouldn't be doing this - I know I know but it's what works) - when she wakes up in the middle of the night she needs some milk to go back to sleep. And last night was a horrible, very loud thunderstorm. So I barely slept because I just KNEW at any moment she would wake up and we would be up for the day because she would never go back to sleep. But she never woke up! I couldn't believe it!

This was us before they took her back. Luckily we didn't have to wait long.
They didn't even put her in a hospital gown or make her get out of what she was wearing. They took her back and it wasn't 5 minutes and the doctor came by and said she was fine. And then we heard her crying.
They just put a little gas mask on her but it made her VERY mad - which is normal. She cried and screamed for about 30 minutes. We had to stay in a room while they monitored her. I have never seen her so mad. But by the time we left - she was fine. She calmed down when daddy held her.
And because we made it through - momma celebrated with a little KK! We came home and she ate breakfast and now she's down for a nap. It was a very easy procedure. I'm just hoping and praying that we begin to see changes in her over the next few weeks. And hopefully no more awful ear infections.

And I just realized that we totally walked out of the clinic and never checked out or paid. I was so preoccupied with her being upset and getting her home that I didn't think about it until we got home so I'm on hold with their billing department as we speak. I swear I do something crazy every day. Old age or motherhood or both.

And in case you didn't hear - Angie had her baby last night and Charlotte is doing good! I'm so excited for her!
