I had only taken a 1/2 day off from work, so Colin had to have her there by 10, and I met them at 11. When I told the receptionist who I was, she called back to the nurse. The nurse brought Erin out, and she about leapt out of her arms towards me with a huge smile. She was so happy to see momma, and it was so sweet.
Colin timed them from the time they took her back until the ENT doctor came to get us, saying she was done. I think he said it was six minutes total. 6 grueling minutes, mind you...but could be much worse! I was home by 1. Very quick!!!
The doctor said he drained rubber cement-like consistency fluid from both ears. It was done at the Children's Surgery Center, which we found to be a lot faster and easier than the hospital. It was a breeze! And we know from past experience, they are worth it.
Jack screamed for a good hour upon waking up from surgery. Grace was just whimpering, but definitely not happy. They tell you that it will be likely that they are not happy afterwards. Not due to pain, but because they just don't like the drowsy feeling from the anesthesia. Not Erin! She slept, drank some juice, slept some more, ate some lunch, had a bath, took her normal nap, and business as usual! She's feeling great and is as cute, funny, and sweet as ever! Love that baby girl so much!
