"I wuv you"

Ava had her much anticipated surgery to remove her little extra toes on Thursday. With this came a whole slew of funny stories to tell...
Now anesthesia can make anyone a little on the "loopy" side, yet alone a little girl. Before the surgery they dosed her up a little so that she would have anxiety leaving her mom and dad and throw a fit when they tried to put her the rest of the way out. So they gave her a little drugs and we sat together on the hospital bed for about 20 minutes waiting for it to set in. Slowly during that time everyone got funnier and funnier. She would laugh at nearly every nurse that walked by. But we knew for certain that she was ready to go back when she looked at the people behind the desk and said, "I wuv you."

She was so stinkin cute it actually made it a little easier to let them take her back. The doctor later told us she smiled through most of the procedure and before she was completely out she wanted to give them all a hug! What a sweetheart!
If you want to check out all her hospital photos go to our "Kearl Smugmug" link on the right side of the page.
