We are scheduled for surgery tomorrow morning at 8am.
I am a little scared about it. I know it is a very minor surgery but its my baby and I don't want her being knocked out for it. That is what scares me the most.
Everyone says she will be totally different after because the infections will be gone or at least not as bad, so I know its necessary. But it doesn't make it easier.
What really bites is that she can't eat anything after midnight. She usually has her morning bottle at 6:30 and then eats cereal at daycare around 7:30. She is not going to be fun to be around as we sit there for an hour waiting on it to all begin. Her last bottle is usually at 7pm, I am considering waking her at midnight to feed her. What do you think, do you think it is worth it or am I just jinxing myself and she will be up partying the rest of the night.
Wish us luck, if I have a chance I will post with an update when we get home tomorrow.

Maybe you can try put her to bed later (giving her the last bottle later), so that she will sleep more and just wake her up with enough time to make it to the surgery.
I know it's scary, but just think that she will be better after this. Do they have to knock her completely out?
Update us when you can. Good luck tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you and Alexa.
Thinking about you and alexa today.....It would be scary to put your lo under, but it will be worth it. She will feel soo much better when it is all done and her ears can drain and heal. Hugs to you both.
It went great. She was gone and back within about 15 minutes.
Last week when we went to the ENT her right ear was slightly infected and her left was clear.
Today when he did the surgery he said both ears were FULL of puss (I know, gross) and was probably in some pain.
She was really crabby when she first woke up, I tried to feed her cereal but I couldn't give her dairy until we got home. As soon as she had a bottle at home she was back to her normal self.
Right now she is babbling up a storm in bed with daddy.
There is some blood in one of her ears but the dr said it was normal.
