I hope no one thinks I am cruel for this post but it was so funny to me! Yesterday I took the Genius in for her laser surgery. She cannot eat or drink anything for 12 hours before. Since we had to be there so early in the morning, she had to stop eating and drinking around 6 p.m. the night before. Needless to say, she arrived on a very empty stomach. After they had monitored her pulse and blood pressure awhile they brought her (What the nurses called) "Goofy Juice". I am not sure what it is. They said it has a small amount of tylenol in it though. They gave it to the baby in the "room" next to us and she fell asleep within 5 minutes. Not so for the Genius. She fought it tooth and nail and it was SOOO funny! Within 5 minutes of taking it, her words started slurring a little. Then (and this is where I got so tickled) she started seeing things. She said, "Mommy, you gotch 5 eysh". She also saw curtains waving, ceiling pieces falling and told the doctor "You gotsh 2 headth". He said, "That does seem to happen to us sometimes." She was quite entertaining to me! I sat there with her for an hour before they took her back! The surgery itself takes less than 10 minutes. We had a little trouble waking her up afterwards (because they give her laughing gas too). When she did wake the poor thing was so dizzy. We had to wheel her out in a wheelchair. Other than that, she did quite well and seems fine today! But I still say watching her with the "goofy juice" was real funny!
