Hooray, it worked for me today! Enjoy this amusing video of "drunk" Hailey. The sad thing is that in this video she was starting to snap out of it a bit. She was really gone for a while, which was both sad and funny. I'm sure she will hate me someday for posting this. Enjoy!

So bright and early Wednesday morning (5:30 be be exact), we drug Hailey out of bed and hurried to the hospital as not to be late for her surgery. They wanted us there 2 hours early of coarse, but by the time the doctor arrived to begin, it was 9:00! He had apparently had a sick child, and had to wait for his wife to come and trade off with him. This was all fine and dandy, but if you look at the picture above, you can see that Hailey was more or less "drunk" well before he arrived. They gave her some very amusing medication at about 7:30, and within 10 minutes she was blitzed--It's probably sad that we found this so amusing, but she was higher than a kite, and it was sooo funny! We took many videos of her random comments and strange songs:)
I could not get my before pictures to upload for some reason, so I will start with these two "out of it" photos. She started off kind of serious, then quickly became limp, smiley, and laughed at everything. She lost her coordination as well, the poor thing.
The actual surgery itself lasted about 5-10 minutes we were told, but the whole process was about 45 minutes. The shorter the better for two nervous parents! She came back very grumpy and whiny, and just wanted to snuggle with mom and dad.
The exhausted little girl immediately fell asleep, and stayed that way until they made her wake up to drink, and use the potty. She was not a happy camper.
Hailey's pink giraffe was her favorite thing that morning, and was quite a hit with the nurses. Giraffe even got her own bracelet and hair net so she could accompany Hailey to surgery. I love this picture of the two of them sleeping together. Hailey loves stuffed animals, and I think this one helped her to be brave and calm...in the beginning anyway. But all in all, we were told that the deflux procedure was a success, and now only time will tell if it worked this time around. We are hoping and praying that she will have no more issues or infections, and that this is the end of all that pain for Hailey.

I am one of those woman who obnoxiously love being pregnant, and miss it when the 9 months are over. This being said, no one lets you in on the little secret that by pregnancy number 3 you are ten times bigger ten times faster, and you have no energy to keep up with the other children. Don't get me wrong, I am still loving being pregnant, but I do not feel quite so cute and energetic this time around. In fact, I feel like a whale every time I have a doctors appointment, and go up an average of 5 lbs each time. "How did that happen?" I ask myself as I shove a handful of potato chips in my mouth :) It truly baffles me though, because I have finally found the energy to work out at least three times a week, plus walking. I guess it is not enough to counteract all the junk food huh. OK, I know a lot of you are probably rolling your eyes and saying "yah right, Kim always thinks she's fat", but here is the truth. I am 28 weeks pregnant, and I weigh 9 lbs more than I did the day I gave birth to Travis, and I started off lighter...yikes. I am showing A LOT, and look about the same as I did at 8 or 9 months with my last. This is a lot for a vain girl like myself to swallow. Oh well, 2 1/2 months left to go!
