My Cupcake's Big Day: Tonsil Surgery!

Another busy week as always!  This morning Cupcake #1 got her tonsils removed and here we are waiting in the waiting room before her surgery! I'm not sure what I'm looking at in photo!

We are thankful my other 3 cupcakes stayed overnight with my in-laws so we could get up bright and early and report to the doctor's office.  Thanks H. and P. for keeping our children.  My husband and I had some apprehensions about whether to go through with the surgery or not, but in the end it was good we did.  The doctor said after surgery that her tonsils were twice as large as they should have been and chronically infected....she has had many cases of strep and soar throats in the past too! 

Just before the IV in her hand and surgery. 
There's a smile! :)

Not a happy camper as she got her IV in her hand to prepare for anesthesia medicine to be put in IV. 
OK, this is not the most attractive photo as she just got out of surgery, and she still had the sleepy meds still in her, but wanted to show my brave girl!  I was going to snap another picture, but the nurse came in and I forgot.  
She rested today and is following doctor's orders!  I'll have to post another "after" photo to prove that she didn't stay looking so sleepy for too long after surgery! :)
We look forward to less strep throat and antibiotics!

So brave!! My big girl had that surgery almost 2 years ago. I was somewhat surprised how difficult it was. Praying for a quick recovery!

God bless her and may she heal quickly. Tell her we are thinking of her and that she is very brave. Our older three girls had the same thing. All different recoveries.

Praise God that all went well. We will keep her in our prayers for continued speedy recovery! Hope she can enjoy those popsicles:)

Just got back in town to read your cupcake had surgery:( Hope she is fully on the mend now and is back to being 100% So glad everything went well. Voted for you today
