So Long Tonsils

Updated: Dec 23, 2019


This year we had two surgeries in the family. Both at the same private hospital with the same doctor. Both involving tonsils and/or adenoids. Both early mornings with tired and hungry girls. We were pretty happy with our overall experience, though of course there were some tears and some rough moments during recovery--and a lot of gelato. Here's my favorite images from those two surgery days.
