Ava’s First Surgery

Update at the bottom of this post

Well, I can’t say this a milestone I have looked forward to, or even thought about really. But, tomorrow, Ava is scheduled to have a little outpatient surgery. She will have to be under general anesthesia, though. 😦 My poor baby. Poor mommy, too, because we have to be there at 6:00am. The hospital is about 30 minutes away, and I have to drop Binh off at our neighbor’s house. Binh doesn’t usually get up until after 8:00, so I’m sure he’ll be a joy to be around if has to get up at 5:00.

Ash has a huge week at work this week. He said it’s like the most important week of the year. So naturally, it’s also the week we have important stuff going on at home, too. I think Ash might be able to drop Binh off at the neighbor’s at 5:15 when he leaves for work if I ask nicely.

So, say a little prayer for us if you think about it tomorrow. I’m sure it will be fine; it’s just the anesthesia that makes me a little nervous. I told Ava, who was worried they were going to hurt her, that she’ll be like Sleeping Beauty and won’t feel a thing. Then, I’ll be there when she wakes up.

I’m open to advice from you seasoned parents out there!

Update: Ava did fine. She didn’t freak out or cry when she woke up. She has thrown up twice since we got home about 3 hours ago. Binh had a great time at the neighbor’s house. I think we’ll all be ready for a nap in a little while. We’ll just be taking it easy today. Thanks for thinking of us!
