2 surgeries in 2 days

I'm wiped. On Tuesday, Alyssa got PE tubes placed. She's had about five ear infection since Christmas time, it was time to do something about it. She fought the anesthesia some, but did really well overall. Today, Gabe had PE tubes placed again due to fluid build up that was affecting his hearing, a bronchoscopy to measure his airway, an adenoidectomy, sealants on his teeth, and dental x-rays. Lots of small things all at once. Hopefully removing the adnoids will prevent him from being such a mouth breather, resolve any lingering sleep apnea issues, and help him drink from cup a little bit better. He did really well. Much better than I expected actually. I think I still have some post traumatic stress from the surgical waiting area. I'm glad it's over. Both kids are sleeping now. We're taking tomorrow as a recoup day. I'm exhausted.
