Another Birthday (surprise!)

Emily is having her Tonsils and Adnoids removed in the morning (see that large pink thing on the right up is NEVER any smaller than that- even when she is healthy).  After several years of battling strep throat, tonsilitus, and constant colds and ear infections- the end is in sight.  Our doctor has been saying for over a year that if they would just take out her tonsils, she would get healthy and we would go back to 'normal' doctor visits- which are apparently not dang near every single week.  The ENT, stars and moon, as well as all good karma in the universe aligned last week and BAM! tomorrow there is an operating room with Miss Emi's name on it.

The hospital called this afternoon to pre-register her.  I was at my moms house.  Dan answered the phone.
He called me to ask the name of her medication.  And if her immunizations were up to date.  And to confirm that she has had a fractured wrist (which she has not).  Here's hoping he registered the right child.

My stomach hurts.  Although this is what we 'wanted', and it is a 'routine procedure', and our surgeon has done tons of them (I'm reasonably sure- at least his MD certificate didn't look like a photocopy),- momma's worry.  And so do little girls.  And mommas worry about worrying little girls.  I'll be glad when this is over.
