it's almost over...



this little girl is such a trooper. it has been a long couple of weeks, and literally i have only left the house three times. i wont go into the whole surgery and ordeal because i fear i would be far too negative right now and heaven forbid some mother google what i googled before simone's surgery and find another scary downer post about a tonsilectomy. we did have to spent thursday night in the hospital because she had a little bleeding out of her nose... so scary but turned out to be just a little scratch or crack in her nostril.

i will say, that i am certain that this surgery is going to do wonders for her in all aspects... we can already see huge improvements in her sleeping and speech. it has been so hard but i can tell it will be worth it.

thanks to everyone for all of the support, calls, flowers, treats, etc. we have felt so loved :)

once i have a little bit of distance from the stress of the last couple of weeks, i do plan on doing a big post about the surgery for people who are going through what i was going through, i really just wanted an honest account of someone who had a 2 year old get their tonsils and adenoids out (i found lots of stories about older kids because they don't do it before they are 5 unless it NEEDS to be done). hopefully it will be a help to someone out there.

i had a 4 year old and a 2 year old go thru this. a million miles apart in every aspect. i so feel for you. a year later i was able to say it was worth it for the 2 year old. it was so easy for with the 4 year old. i really feel your pain and tears.

oh, i am so sorry! and look at that little face, breaks my heart that she would be in pain.
when you do your post will you expand on the speech aspect of it? just wondering if she was slow to speak or hard to understand. we are having some speech issues with ruby.
all the best wishes

She is so sweet, that picture says it all too. Even if this helps her breathing alone then it's worth it, but it sounds like this procedure will help so much more. You're a good momma. Just sent you an offer {via email} none should refuse :)

Hello Amy! I use to visit your blog for a while, I love your work (as I am an aspiring photographer myself) and your little girls! You seriously have the most beautiful babies I've ever seen :) It's beautiful to see how you describe your love for them, it makes me cry just like now... Simone has been though a lot since she was born but the moment you look at her you see it all! She's a true winner, a true blessing and it's really important that you realize how much God has given you. Both of your girls are HIS gifts to you and I'm sure you do an awesome job! Sometimes we have to go through these situations that we dont completely understand the purpose, but believe, there is one. Once my ministor said: "God never does anything for bad, even tho we may not understand" :) I dont really know why I decided to post this to you now, maybe he's bringing me to you... just wanted to say, never give up rising up your head to him, he will never let you down! All the best to you and your family, I hope your little doll recovers soon, lots pf prayers sent your way :)

I am interested in hearing your story, mostly because we had an 18 month old have the surgery done 3 years ago and it was fairly easy. We experienced better sleeping, speech, and breathing as well. Good luck. I know how tough recovering is. My middle son had bacterial menengitis last year and that is enough to scare any parent. Good luck.
