Ear Tube Surgery (Schedule)

I woke up early today to wait for the call from the Anesthesia department of the Children's South Hospital. When I scheduled Andrea's ear tube surgery weeks ago, they told me that someone from the anesthesia department will call me for some kind of briefing before the surgery.

Andrea is not allowed to have solid food after midnight. From midnight to 4:30 in the morning she is only allowed a clear liquid diet. She can drink apple juice, pear juice, or pedialyte. She should not have anything after 4:30am. We need to be at the hospital at 6:45am. She will be given an anesthesia, and she will be in different machines to monitor her vital statistics while undergoing the surgery. When she wakes up, she will be placed in the recovery room for at least 20minutes and then she will be allowed to come home.

I know this is an ordinary procedure here in the USA but I couldn't help but worry about my girl. I am praying that everything will be smooth and no problems at all. Guys, pray for my girl!

next time if he has an ear infection , i recommend you to check out the eardoc.
it is a non invasive medical device and it treats the problem rather than the symptom,
