Here she is in the hospital yesterday waiting to go into surgery, we were playing around with Instagram!
She was overly fascinated with her IV!
We got to the hospital at 8:30 in the morning and she went into surgery around 10:30 and back out in less than half an hour. After she came out of the anesthesia they moved her up to the peds unit where we stayed until about 4:30 in the afternoon - she had a little trouble staying awake to drink enough so that we could go home any sooner! This is where I must say how happy we were with Columbus Regional Hospital, the nurses, dr's, anesthesiologist and staff were awesome, friendly and so helpful! It was kind of a fluke that we ended up down there - the ENT Specialist that we were referred to works out of Columbus and Johnson Memorial, which was originally the hospital that we choose - but since we are self-employed and therefore have self-employed insurance which for us puts our deductible at $11,000 per person requires that we check into how much items on the "menu" are going to cost so that we can get the money together - anyway when we called Johnson Memorial their "menu" prices seemed steep so I decided to call Columbus just to do a little bargain shopping and it paid off - they were A LOT cheaper - isn't that what everyone looks for in health care - cheap! But in all seriousness we loved it down there and obviously short of emergency's (because of distance) this will be our hospital of choice!
Pretty much all she demands is that I lay in the same room with her and watch Disney movies and when I get her Sherbert I get myself some too! Now that is my kind of patient!
PS Chris: she did say that it would make her feel a lot better if you and the other 2 kids would clean the kitchen and do a couple of loads of laundry while I was caring for her - but don't ask her if that's true because her throat hurts really bad you wouldn't want to make her talk!
And last night she got some really exciting news that I can't wait to share when it is official - I am so proud of her!
