Brooklyn's Surgery

So for those of you who don't know Brooklyn had to have surgery for an inguinal hernia. She had it about two and a half weeks ago. The surgery went well and she recovered fairly quickly though about two days later she caught a virus and was sick for the next week and now she has been teething and has a slight cold. She just can't seem to catch a break, though she is a trooper most of the time you can't even tell she is sick except for when she starts to get tired or hungry :) The day of the surgery Lily was really cute she was very worried for Brooklyn and when they took her back to do the surgery Lily asked us why we were letting him(the Dr.) take Brooklyn because Brooklyn was our baby and no one elses so he couldn't take her. We explained that the Dr. was going to take her and make her better and then we would get her back. That calmed Lily down and then she was okay. The other update on Brooklyn is that she is a happy and curious baby. she loves to take things or items out of the container or basket etc. and then put them back in. She loves to follow me or Paul around and gets sad if we don't pay attention to her when we pass her:) She is not walking on her own yet though! Which is nice because it is alittle easier to watch her with crawling:)

I'm so glad the surgery went well. Poor thing, I hope she's back to 100% fast!!

POor thing. Where was the hernia actually at? That sounds like no fun at all. I'm sure it was much harder on you than on her.

Oh my gosh April, I had no idea she had surgery. I am so glad she is doing well. That's not fun when kids have surgery.
