I will write a more detailed post, complete with stellar iPhone photos when The Bear is doing a bit better.
In the meantime, Ellie Bear had some really huge, cryptic tonsils and a nasty (as in lots of crusting and mucus--I said NASTY!) adenoid of substantial size was removed. I am told it was quite impressive. She is also the proud owner of a new set of ear tubes. Ellie likes to trade her tubes in for a brand new pair every 6 months-1year or so. You know, she needs the new model.
Yesterday was rough due to reasons unrelated to the throat and she did have some oxygenating issues at night during the scant few hours of sleep she did get. Again, more details later.
We are home after we all batted our eyelashes at the ENT surgeon. As much as we love the scrumptious hospital food, stellar concierge service, and luxurious sleeping arrangements, we knew that Ellie would recover much better at home.
