Successful surgery

Ella did really great today at the hospital. We had to be there at 6 am and she was quite a sleepy head this morning. The entire procedure lasted just over an hour (tubes in the ear and adenoids removed) and we had to wait in the lobby until she woke up from the anesthesia. They warned us that she was going to be crabby when she woke up, but the good girl cried for maybe three minutes and fell right back asleep in Mama's arms. We took her home around 10 am and she ate a little brunch and slept for about an hour. Now it definitely seems like she is feeling better and is playing with her toys, but she is not supposed to play crazy for at least two days and should still take it pretty easy for another week or two.
Thanks for reading...enjoy the pictures.

Here she is wearing the hospital top and of course, Elmo (who even went with her to surgery):

A family shoot that the nurse took for us:
In the hospital top and bottom. Both were too big for her, but so cute!
Here she is trying to see what was on her head:

I'm so happy you are feeling better Ella. You are such a trooper. Elmo is a pretty good friend to get up that early with you!

Ella, so glad the surgery is over and that you are getting better! The picture with you & your Mama & Papa is very nice. Did they let you keep those pj's?
