"Great Success!"

I said I'd never watch Borat, but never say never, right? I caved. I watched it. I fast forwarded through the disgusting parts. And yes, I laughed at a lot of things, too. So, I had to use that for my title.

Anyway, some of your comments on Twitter made me realize I didn't let you know how Kaylee's surgery went.

It went GREAT! It was unbelievably fast, and she did fantastic.

She's such a Daddy's girl, and often favors Dennis over me, so when the nurses told me this little story, I about melted right then and there...

They explained that when the kids come out of anesthesia, they're often "little barbarians" what with the kicking and hitting and biting (crazy, huh?). They're scared and confused and don't know what the heck is going on.

Well, when Kaylee woke up, the first thing she said was, "Mama, please?"

That's my girl. :)

She's on some ear drops and an antibiotic for a week, and we'll go for a follow-up in 3 weeks.

And I just want to say thanks for all of you who left comments here and on Twitter offering encouragement and giving examples of your successes with the ear tubes. It was so awesome to see all that support, and I really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers for Kaylee.

Awwwwww...she loves you. She really loves you. (Did you ever really doubt it?)

I'm glad the surgery went well. My niece had ear tubes when she was little and they worked miracles!
