Emma had her tonsils out a week ago. To say that she has been miserable would be an understatement. Daniel had his tonsils out when he was 5 and it hardly phased him. We really had to beg him to take it easy and rest. I was kind of expecting that sort of situation with Emma, but she has been the complete opposite. She threw up and fevered and has cried and moaned and howled, waking up multiple times a night. She is irrational and difficult to reason with. She has hardly drank or eaten anything for a week. Crazy. I want to be a loving, comforting Mommy who can take care of my little Emma, but she pushes us away and scowls and whines no matter what we do. I am so ready to have this over with. I need my sweet Emma back, not this little monster. These pictures were taken before the surgery. Before we knew the misery that was before us!
