Finally, She has Clear Eyes

Back on October 29th, Hanna had surgery to unclog her tear ducts.  And I have to say, it was a complete success!!! 
We had to arrive at 7:15 and thankfully Hanna played in the waiting room for the almost hour and half before they called us back. 
Here she is playing while we’re waiting
Scott took the day off of work, dropped Caty off at school, then met us at the hospital.  He showed up about 5 minutes after we were brought back.  They gave Hanna the “silly juice” and within minutes she started getting loopy then just went to sucking her thumb.
Off they went.  The procedure only took about 30 minutes and we were called back.  She wasn’t happy waking up from the anesthesia, but who is. 
We were in the car and on the way home by 11:00.   We weren’t sure what to expect – was it instantaneous?  Sure enough, Saturday morning, Hanna woke up with clear eyes.  The first time in 16 months. 
I’m so happy that I don’t have to fight with her every morning with a warm washcloth trying to free her eyes of goop!

So happy Hanna's surgery was a complete success and that she wakes up with clear eyes now! Woohoo! She's so adorable sitting in the crib and sucking her thumb with her blankie!
