Mia's surgery went well. It's amazing the difference in the child. Now that she's sleeping, it is like somebody switched her. She is (mostly) agreeable and helpful and only throws 5-6 fits a day, as opposed to an hour (well, she is still a 2-year-old. can't expect miracles, right?).
Mia did really well during the whole ordeal. she was very brave and didn't cry at all when they took her back (without us! ack!). She was very upset and out of it when she woke up which was so sad! She rebounded quickly, though and was even able to go home the same day, which they said doesn't always happen with kids her age. But within a week she was doing much better and at two weeks she was herself again. Well, herself several months ago at least.
We tried to take some pictures to make it fun and seem like an adventure. Enjoy!
On the way to the hospital very early in the morning... documented proof that she actually fell asleep in the car!
Micah joined in the car naptime, too.
Mia playing with all the new toys with Grampy. She did so good for not having eaten!
Micah wasn't quite sure what was going on, but she liked it.

This is after the morphine. Sleepy girl.
