No more goop eye!

Malia had her clogged tear duct surgery on Monday, and it went really well. She didn't cry at all before when they were putting on all the monitor stuff. She just looked at them like, "what the heck are you doing to me." The anesthesiologist picked her up and took her to the back, which was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I knew it was a really quick procedure and she would only be out for about 10 minutes, but she was still going completely under! Totally scary! She did great though, the doctor said they just put the mask on and she was out. Completely different story when she woke up. She was ticked off! She wasn't just crying, she was screaming at the top of her lungs for about 20 minutes and throwing herself all over the place. Poor girl, had no idea what was going on. She finally calmed down and fell asleep on the way home. The doctor said that she had never seen such a tight tear duct before, which meant a lot of swelling and bruising. And she was right, she looked like she got into a fight. It was really swollen and black and blue. But it already looks way better, just bruised now, but no more gunk in her eye! It's seriously weird to see her eye all clean and not half shut with goop . Here are some pics of her poor little beat up eye!

Right after she got home, of course she's eating.



Two days later, no crusties, goop or gunk in her eye! Yeah!!!!
