Lexis minus her tonsils.

This was before surgery as you can tell!

So the day after Christmas Lexis had her tonsils out. It went a lot better than I expected. She was very calm and actually excited about the surgery. I think she was most happy about having "room service". Funny girl, what she forgot to think about was that she couldn't eat much liquids and soft foods only! So since pictures are worth 1,000 words here they are.

Again before surgery in her room before going to the waiting room.

This is Dr. Lyons talking to Lex before her surgery. He is so funny!

Group photo before they took her off to surgery. Grandma Helmick, Grandma Diercks, Lexis and Me.

Lexis is smiling just minutes before getting put under.

It will all be over soon Lex.

Here is what they took out. Uhhhh!

Lexis waking up in recovery. My poor Lex. I knew how she felt....MISERABLE.

She attempted to eat about 3 hours after surgery. Opps it didn't stay down. Second times a charm, right?

Her room mate was also having her tonsils removed too. Well after about 3 hours she wanted to go home. Lexis ears perked up and asked me if she could go home too. WE asked the nurse and she said, "Sure if you are feeling okay." She jumped up and then that is when she got sick. So we stayed about another 2 hours then she was discharged. This was when Heather took out her IV.

When we got home I gave her another dose of her pain medicine. It made her very sick so we decided to stick to Tylenol and Motrin. She has very little pain which is very good! She has been playing her guitar hereo she got for Christmas. That sure takes her mind off it all!

Christmas Time!

So wow I can't believe it is Christmas time. Lexis sang really good in her choir a few weeks ago. I was extremely proud of her. I remember being her age and singing in choir as well and now here I am as a Mother watching her do the same thing! She has an amazing voice!

So this year it is a toss up between, "Is Santa real or not?" Huh this Mom is staying out of that! Lexis is really excited about Christmas and is thrilled with how many presents she sees under the tree.

I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!
