Mattie’s surgery went well. Tubes were put in both ears and her adenoid was removed by Mattie’s ENT doctor. After those procedures were done, Mattie’s general surgeon came in and removed a “mass” from her vagina (nothing to be concerned out). I figured since Mattie was going under for her ears, we might as well do a double surgery.

I got a little panicked after 35 minutes passed from meeting with the surgeon and they still had not called us back to see Mattie (the nurse said it can take 20-30 minutes for her to wake up). By 40 minutes, I was about to lose it. I sent Jim to talk to the nurse b/c I was about to be in tears. At 44 minutes, they finally called us back to go see her. Poor baby. She was whimpering as she was being held by a nurse. I took Mattie from the nurse and almost cried. It took a while for Mattie to open her eyes and for us to get a smile. We were in recovery for 30 minutes before we were allowed to go home. On the way home she puked but since then she has been a trooper. I have not noticed any change in her hearing, I guess time will tell. We follow up with the ENT doctor in 3 weeks to re-test her hearing. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers!
