Daphne’s surgery went well, so Thank You for all your thoughts and Prayers!
She was quite pissed at the Nursing staff yesterday for touching her even if it was just to put an ID band on her, so you can imagine when they had to take blood for testing it did not go well.
All the Pre-OP precautions takes longer than the actual surgery which was less than 10 minutes.
In the recovery, Daphne was just as mad if not even more so since we were not with her when she woke up but we were very soon after. She took a bottle, ate some oatmeal and banana and we were discharged by 10am.
I hope that the tubes work and she can be infection free!

For all you prayer Warriors out there I would appreciate one for Daphne on Monday she is getting Tube Surgery on her ears.
She has been suffering from ear infections almost weekly and we had this scheduled once before but had to cancel it because she got croup.
This is a standard normal procedure for normal kids but for Mito kids the stress of the anesthesia, surgery can all throw her Mitochondria into a panic.
I had to dictate to all docs involved how it is going to go and I will still have to make sure the pre and post op bloodwork and drugs used are all kosher, since they screwed it up for her last appointment. Geesh, healthcare these days is bad, bad. Once I calm down from the week I had I will write about it but write now I have nothing nice to say, so I won’t say anything at all.
