Surgery Day

My little pea had surgery yesterday. Ya know, the boy surgery. :) (I am sure he is going to hate me one day for posting this! hehe!) He did soooo amazingly well. Much better than I did! They allowed me to go into the surgery room with him while the anesthesia was administered and he was so brave! I felt a little intimidated walking into the OR because there were about 6 or 7 doctors and nurses waiting for us in scrubs, but pea did not seem phased at all. The anesthesiologist even let him color on the sheets of the bed before she put him under. Even though it was a very minor surgery, I cried all the way out to the waiting room! But, all of the hospital staff were so, so wonderful and that definitely made it easier.

We spent most of yesterday afternoon watching movies, but pea was bursting with energy today running around like a wild child! I suppose he had a lot of pent up energy built up from our lazy day yesterday. He decided it was a good day to climb everything...the bookshelf, into his crib, the entertainment center, etc, etc. The nurse told us he would probably have some limited mobility for a little while...ha. Ya right.

On the car ride home. The nurses made sure Mr. Bear was properly dressed for the occasion.

I found your blog from Kinsey's (and Brittney's). Your son is adorable. He and my son look remarkably alike! I'm glad his surgery went well.

Awww, Eli and bear look so cute on their ride home! I'm glad Eli did well! It sounds like it didn't keep him down long at all!!

I am going to have to go back and read your last 7 days of Adoption Awareness!

OH so glad he did well! Isn't it sooooo hard to wait for while they're in surgery! I cried, too. ;-(

Hope he continues to heal well!

Glad to hear it went ok...the sooner they do it,the easier it probably is on them. My Peter had it done at 15 months and he bounced right back. Pea was a brave little trooper, it sounds like!

Poor little guy! I'm thinking about getting Isaiah's "you know what" done too. My friend Lisa had her 2 year old done too and within two days he was back to normal!
