Wow, Rylie really suprised me. Last night we fed Rylie very well! She stayed up late and actually slept later then usual. She woke up at 8:30 and got her bath. She started right away asking for crackers but I distracted her by letting her look at family pictures on the computer. Then she watched her new montage three times in a row. Every once and a while she asked to eat, but we just changed the subject and she did fine. Surgery didn't get started until 12:00, even though they promised me no later then 11:15. There was another little girl in the waiting room, so Rylie was having fun playing with her while waiting. The actual surgery only took 10 minutes and when Rylie woke up, she was a little groggy and cried for a couple minutes, but then she started belting out The Curious George song followed by a few Barney songs. When she got home she ate some pizza and chips. She played for about an hour and is now taking a nap.
She must be hearing good already, because the doctor was giving recovery instructions, and of course mentioned about wearing ear plugs if she goes swimming. Well, before Rylie laid down for her nap, she asked me at least 20 times if she could go outside in the pool and swim? I said, sure Rylie, soon as it stops flurrying outside. By the way, we don't even have a pool!
So, anyway the surgery went very well. She will have a follow up visit in 2 weeks and a hearing test.
