Rachel's Fine

Although, she's still at the hospital; we had to wait more than two hours after the appointed time, which I guess is typical for these kinds of things.

They said that her tonsils were much larger than they expected, which might explain some of the breathing problems she's had, which was the reason we had this done in the first place. They took out the adenoids too, and oh yes, a tooth happened to fall out during the surgery, so the nurses played tooth fairy and left a dollar, which was really sweet.

I can't say enough about how professional and nice they are at Children's Memorial Hospital here in Chicago. I've met some of the people here before, as we used to do telethons with them years ago, and they do a terrific job making both the kids and the parents comfortable in situations that can be stressful.
