There are a few less tonsils and adenoids around our house these days. Daisy had surgery on Monday, so now we are riding the roller coaster of recovery.
Things look a lot like this right now:
(Except that we're home from the hospital and there are less cords involved).
No matter how common a procedure is, it's never any consolation for seeing your child in pain. I just have to keep reminding myself that our burden will only last about 12 more days. I keep thinking of all of the children I saw at the hospital who are suffering from things that are much worse, and then I am thankful for our small inconvenience.
But still... to see my daughter shaking in pain and refusing to eat, take her medication, or even speak kind of sucks.
