On Nov 11th, Kivi got to have a tonsillectomy! She has been waiting for this for a long time. The poor girl could hardly breath or swallow through the nail head size hole in the back of her throat. Our stay at Mary Bridge for the early morning to the afternoon, was quite enjoyable. The nurses were so attentive and helpful. Of course it might have helped that Kivi was one of the only non-screaming children before or after surgery.

After she took the medicine to make her sleepy she was saying the funniest things. None of it made any sense. One of the few phrases we actually understood was, "Oh, my blanket just turned pink."
She did great during the short 20 minute surgery. And was a champ while we waited for the IV to fill her up with liquid. Most of our time was spent waiting. Which is probably the hardest part for a 4 year old. We are so proud of our Kivi girl. You did great baby!
