Owen was a trooper. He had a second set of ear tubes put in and his adnoids taken out last week. We had to be at the hospital at 6:00 am for surgery at 7:00 am. Based on his memory of the Riley Children's Hospital a few months ago, he was kind of excited to go to the hospital. He thought he was going to get to play with toys and get all kinds of special attention. But upon ariving at the "regular" hospital, he slowly came to the realization that this hospital was not the same--no toys, no singing balloon.
All in all, he did a good job. He was nervous about leaving mommy and daddy and had a tough time waking up from the anesthesia. But as soon as Mommy and Daddy got back to him we cuddled and rested while he worked through feeling disoriented and weird from the medicine. All three of us got a little nap and when we woke up, the nurse discharged us and we were home before noon.
