The Little Stinker Can Hear!

Whitney's surgery to place "t tubes" in her ears was successful on our second attempt of the day! Although Whitney had other plans this morning (by eating a tiny piece of paper from the package her hospital socks came in while I was talking to the anesthesiologist) we were able to come back this afternoon (after her paper had "digested") and the surgery went well. I was very happy that all went well... Whitney did NOT share my feelings! She was FURIOUS when they brought her back to me. She was just so mad and she screamed and cried loud enough for the entire wing of St. Vincent Hospital to hear her!!! :) I did not get any pictures of this display (because I was trying to hold her and she was just distraught) but I did get a few pictures of her just before her surgery (and we were sure to keep all forms of paper away from her!!!)


loooking so sweet and innocent

too sweet! (but still a little stinker!)

So glad the infamous paper didn't prevent the surgery today! Everytime I see her sweet face I just want to jump into the computer and give her a big hug, she's just adorable!

She is just adorable. Her eyes are so beautiful. Glad the day ended well. What a funny story to tell years down the road, the day Whitney ate paper before surgery, too cute!

That face...stinker or not, that kiddo is so gorgeous. I'm glad to hear that it went well today. Oddly enough, my friend's daughter had tubes placed today too! Hugs to you all.

Too cute! I'm glad that Whitney was able to get her tubes today :) Hopefully she will forgive and forget about the surgery.

Cute little stinker for sure! I still can't believe she managed to do that in front of all people but the anesthesiologist. Glad it went well even if it was the second trip.
