Checking in

No post yesterday -- Amanda got her ear tubes. The operation went well and she recovered incredibly quickly. By the afternoon, it was impossible to tell she'd been under general anesthesia a few hours before. Pretty amazing for a baby who's only seven and a half months old. In contrast, when Alexandra got her tubes put in at 11 months she was cranky for the rest of the day.

We had to get up at around 0500 to be at the Childern's Hospital of Phialdelphia outpatient facility in Exton by 0645. So by the time we got home at 0900 I was pooped.

You never want to see your child go into the hospital for any reason but in this case it was the right thing to do. Amanda no longer has fluid in her ears for the first time since late November. I'm just glad it's over and done with.
