Tonsils and Addison

Addison snores more than any little kid I know. And it doesn't matter where she falls asleep. She snores. Well we had to get her tonsils and adnoids taken out last Friday. And boy what an experience. Not only has my family been sick from what we think is the swine flu.. (we are going off what other that have had it have said and what the doctors are saying)

We got to the hospital and Addie was fine she was talking to a little girl climbed into her bed. But as soon as the wanted her to put the night gown on she freaked. And I have no idea why. Then her Dr. was late for an emergency at another hospital so we blew up the latex gloves and threw them played games.. Really anything that I could keep her happy with. Then they came back to get her. She kept asking me.."mom are you coming" I would tell her I would for a little bit. Then they wheeled her through the surgery doors. And I felt horrible. She was looking at me with the sadest face.

After the surgery was over the Dr. said she did great. They came and got me in recovery and they said that they had just given her morphine.. I was thinking ok we are going to be here forever. She is going to be so sleepy.. Oh no she was wide awake and demanding! And one of the first things she asked was to go play with her cousin Lily! We settled for calling Lily.

Well, 4 days into it and we are hanging in there. She is struggling with drinking and not eating anything. But she is a trooper! Here are some pictures..

NayNa came

My sister Jayna (the kids call her Nayna) was living in Ohio.. And moved to L.A. so on her way through to Cali she stopped in to visit everyone. Addison wouldnt leave her alone and had to follow her everywhere. We played games and Jayna made cupcakes that turned out.. well.... they were good if you didnt have to look at them. We were so busy hanging and talking and laughing that the only picture I got was the beautiful one of her.

We think she was adopted.
