Jocelyn got to wear a cute little gown with tiger's on it. Isn't she cute!! She was a pro waiting for the surgery. She just played with her toys and examined her new surroundings. I was quite impressed considering she should have been super hungry. She is such a good little girl.
I didn't take anymore pictures as she came back feeling pretty lousy trying to shake off the anesthesia. We took her home and after a bottle and a nap she was back to her happy self . . . with one slight change. When I hollered down the stairs for the kids to come up for lunch (I am to lazy to walk down them) I was shocked that Josie started crying behind me. I had startled her with my hollering. This has never happened before. And then a few minutes later, when my son let out a Hooray for Mac and Cheese shout, she startled again and began to cry.
Those tears are such a blessing!!! She can hear. I am just so happy for her. What a wonderful ending to a nerve-racking 9 months. We started out fearing she was deaf, to hoping she would be able to hear with hearing aids, to perfect hearing (I hope, we have to follow up in a few weeks) with the aid of tubes. I am just overjoyed. Now the kids and I just have to work on keeping our voices down. I can't imagine how it must be to go from a soundless/muffled world to a noisy and loud world. But, I can say, I am so happy that we will be going through the transition!!
