Caitlyn's surgery went really well! It lasted about 45 min. We were at the surgical center for about 4 hours total. They gave her something to relax before the surgery and I swear I was torn between wondering if they were killing brain cells and laughing so hard I might pee my pants! She was so funny. She had no motor control, and just giggled like she was on laughing gas. Waking up from the anesthesia was better than her first surgery, but still not a fun time. They wake up and are so disoriented that they cry and fuss. She did drink her glass of apple juice and kept it down so we got to go home an hour after the surgery. She didn't sleep as long as she did after her first surgery. She got up at about 2:30 and we watched Finding Nemo (the only movie she'll sit still for more than a few min). She was fussy on and off the rest of the day. But she went back to school the next day and has been doing pretty well since. She's been getting up at night and been kind of restless. I've only had to actually get up with her once though. They also told us that she'd have bad breath for about 2 weeks after the surgery....but they didn't warn us how bad it would be. O.M.G. I can't even explain it. I don't think it's bothering her though and it's already started to get better.
We have our follow up appt in another week...hopefully her ears look clear! She has been eating so much better since her surgery...it's amazing!
