|Playing in the waiting room once we arrived this morning.|
Jason and I are mastering the art of keeping Norah preoccupied, protecting her from all the big scary things happening around her. Today is was making goofy faces, reading Princess Baby (over and over and over again) and playing angry birds on Daddy's phone before surgery.
Here's a video of Norah just before surgery and after the gave her versed to relax her and start the sedation process, she's pretty cute.
After surgery, as I walked into the recovery room Norah was very upset. She did not like waking up alone, she could not get up into my arms fast enough and I was elated to have her in them again. The was two attempts to set her down, one before walking from the recovery room back to day surgery, and one right before we were discharge, just getting near the bed and the thought of being set down would bring the tears and crying, so in our arms she stayed. Mason was also a trooper throughout the day, he had a sleepy day. He slept from the moment we arrived until Norah was in surgery. He woke up and nursed like a champ, had a near blow diaper then back to sleep until we were on our way home. Amazing.

Tonight at home we kept things low key, brought home some take out for supper, and made a snuggle spot on the sofa. Grant was quick to notice the bandage on Norah's tummy and help bring Norah's attention to it as well, so we changed Norah into a onesie to keep it safely covered.
This was our happy little girl before bed....so happy she is!
I've never been so happy or ready to move after I have had surgery, she's something special!
