It's tomorrow. Zoey has to report to surgery at 6:30am about an hour from our house. She will have ear tubes put in and her adenoids taken out. I can't say I'm not relieved that she will hopefully be clear of these ear infections, which is causing a lot of pressure and fluid build up and she's really been unable to hear well and dealing with a lot of ear pain. But I can't say I'm not totally freaking out! Neither of my kids have ever been under anesthesia or had surgery, so this is a bit of a shake up for me, but I know she will be fine and in the long run, much healthier. And to add to a day of "firsts", Braedan is having his first sleepover at my parent's house as we have to leave pretty early in the morning and will hang out with his papa till we get home. We don't often leave him (going to Korea was the first time I'd ever even been away for him for longer than a few hours!) and he NEVER spends the night anywhere! But he's right next door and in good hands, so nothing to fear. (We'll see how I sleep tonight!) In any case, prayers are appreciated (mostly for me!) though we know this a fairly routine procedure. Hopefully we'll be in and out and Zoey will get the rest she needs and have a quick recovery. Sigh. Everything will be okay, everything will be okay....:)
And I'm loving the new Clustrmap I added to our blog recently to check out who's viewing our blog and from where! I am super excited to see that there have been several hits from South Korea and I'm hoping it is one or both of Zoey's foster families! My blogging has been kind of lame since opening the Etsy store, but now I'm determined to keep up with it in the event it's them! So if they are reading this now, WELCOME! And thank you again for taking such excellent care of our beautiful girl for her first nine months of life! I hope this blog will be able to give you a chance to watch her thrive and grow! Letter and pictures coming to you soon in the mail! :)
In the meantime, if you haven't signed up for the giveaway going on at my Etsy shop, head on over and check it out! Winner will be announced tomorrow once I get home! I made the cutest dress today that will hopefully be listed by this weekend, so stop back by!
