A little trip...that's all!

Well, the room has been reserved, plans are made------

Selah will have her tonsils and adenoids removed March 20. I was told by the woman at the doctors office not to go into any details with her, that the less she knows the better. The morning we go to the hospital, maybe I will tell her we are just going on a little trip. I don't know...

I have some anxiety over this whole thing, but am so relieved to finally be doing it and (Lord willing) making everything better!
Just wanted to update you all and ask you to be praying- that Selah stays healthy between now and then, that the doc has wisdom and awareness, that I have strength, and that Selah handles it well and that James and I have wisdom in how to approach it with her.

Thanks everyone!

I will be praying for her and you! How are you feeling?

Tiff, don't worry about Selah. She'll be fine. I promise this is a bigger ordeal to you and James than for her. Just tell her that she's going to make her throat feel better. She is going to take a nap and when she wakes up, you and James will be there and she'll be all better. I had lots of sugeries when I was little (including tonsils and adnoids). And she'll bounce back quicker than you think. She'll probably be charming all the doctors and nurses. Don't be nervous!

Thanks for the encouragement... I am feeling more and more at peace with it all, especially since she has really not been sleeping well lately. It's nice to hear stories of people who had it done when they were kids and are normal, happy adults, haha.
