Paige is a trooper - it was quite a long day. We were at the hospital around 7 this morning and instead of doing a general anesthetic, they just gave her some medicine through an IV to make her sleep for a couple hours. This was good news for me - I was expecting 3 days of breathing tubes and am very glad that I was wrong. The IV wasn't even as bad as I was expecting - the nurses were great and used a small needle (the kind they use with preemies and newborns). Paige fought the anesthesia though and they ended up having to give her a different medicine as well to make sure she was asleep. She did great coming out of it - and was rewarded with a orange popsicle which she wore on her face and hands the rest of the day (we had to have an extra long bath tonight to get rid of the orange stain).
The anesthesia did make her (very) cranky and (very) dizzy. She didn't understand though why she was having so much trouble walking and why everyone was following her around to make sure she didn't fall. So most of the day today was spent with trying to keep Paige from hurting herself. The dizziness finally wore off after dinner tonight, but not before we had a good game of twin foosball.
The twins and I are staying with my brother and sister-in-law this week while the big kids are with their dad at his parent's house. We have actually spent quite a bit of time at the Gilmore's as well and while their house if full of fun new toys for the babies, Michael's house doesn't have many (any) toys. Michael does however have any type of ball that you can think of. So Paige and Michael came up with the game of twin foosball. I thought it would be easier to let you watch the game rather than try to explain, so for those interested, here is a quick game of twin foosball (and it is a lot harder than it looks - or maybe I should have traded kids with Michael since Piper is about 5 lbs heavier than her sister).
