Well, I survived my surgery today and Daddy survived watching the baby and the toddler (with the help of the fabulous Granny of the East!). It was a long day and I ended up waiting a longggggg time to be called in to surgery but M was a trooper and survived without me. I was able to feed her just before I was called into be prepped and was worried as I watched the hours tick by without being called in. The awesome anesthesiologist told me there is some new-fangled med. that I could be given so that I could breastfeed right away after surgery--HURRAHH!
Turns out M is not a picky eater though, I came home and gave her the bottle just because pumping it was so much work and she took it immediately and drank to her heart's content like a pro-it was some kind of miracle! She's never held nor seen a bottle and is already an expert...hmm...I'm sensing a girl's night out!
I don't want to gross you out so I won't tell you that after her nap A found the "baby's milk" on the floor and took a healthy swig of it and declared it, "Delicious!"
Hmm....yeah, some things are better left unsaid....
