Tomorrow is D-Day

For Miss Ella that is. Tomorrow is her cyst removal surgery and I wasn't at all nervous or worried.

Until now...

I don't know why. It's supposed to be a quick, relatively painless surgery. It should only take an hour, but still. I don't like the idea of her being under general anesthesia (sure that was spelled wrong!) being so young. Plus, I worry about how she does with the dressing on her head where they cut her head open. She has a fit when I put a hat on her, Lord knows she will have a fit with gauze wrapped around her head!! And I know this is totally superficial, but I also wonder if they will have to shave some of her hair off. They have to do a cut from ear to ear right at the top of her forehead where her hairline starts. Although its better than the alternative (making a cut in the middle of her forehead only to leave a nasty scar), I just don't like the idea of it.

I'm worried about how much pain she is in too. Because she's so little, she can only have infant Tylenol or Motrin. I don't even give her that for teething, it never seems to help her.

Ugh, being a parent is so tough.

I will try and post tomorrow after all is said and done.

Oh, and yes Magellan does have to go to New Paltz this week too. Luckily he won't be leaving till Tuesday, but it still could be a long week for Ella and I.

Pray for her!

Poor Ella and mommy. I'd be a wreck too, getting Chase circumcised when he was two weeks old was awful even though he didn't have to go under. She'll be ok, I too hope she leaves the bandages alone and pain reliever helps.
