Nadia and I woke up bright and early this morning and made our way to the hospital for her surgery.
"That's quite a bright flash for 6:15 in the morning Mommy!"
Nadia seemingly has no memory of her visit here last July for her first ear tube surgery and enjoyed playing in the lobby.
Remember this little girl who at the time had only been home with us less than a month?
I gave her the beeper to keep her occupied then so I decided to do the same today.
Even with that faint flashback she's still hamming it up in the pre-op room and having a great time... happily oblivious to what lies ahead.
Think I'll lay back and chill for awhile.
I told her it was time to pray and this was her response. :)

Time to practice with the mask again.
9 months ago
Even as she's beeing wheeled back to surgery she's still having her own little party. What a nut!!!
The surgery went very well and our time in recovery was relatively short.
She's doing her 'Calgon Take Me Away' pose...don't blame her one bit!
The nice thing about this recovery is that she really wanted her mommy to comfort her and not the nurse. 9 months ago I was just another 'slightly' familiar face to her. It did my mommy heart good to have this moment even though I knew my baby was in pain.
We had a wonderful nurse in recovery and she just loved Nadia. She told me that before and after surgery the nurses were fighting over who would get to hold Nadia. She finally told the others to "give me that baby--she's mine!". I was able to share our adoption story with her and how God led us to Nadia. I love when God gives us moments like that don't you?
Go ahead...tell us how you really feel.
We arrived home at around 11:30 and all Nadia wanted to do was sleep so we let her. Michael has such a tender heart for Nadia and was the first one to want to hold and comfort her.
Here is a major answer to prayer already! She ate an entire scoop of ice cream. It took a little coaxing at first but eventually she let me feed her the entire portion. To say I'm thrilled is an understatement.
This pretty much shows how I'm feeling right now too!!!
She's also been willing to drink a little bit and take her pain meds so far.
