His surgery was at 8am, but they wanted us there at 6:30. Surprisingly, we were able to get him up, diaper changed, and dressed without him really waking up.
Him and dad so sleepy.
He really was a trooper. He's always so cooperative when doctors are poking and prodding :) He's been through it enough.
Our failed attempt at a photo together :)
He wasn't aloud to have any food or drinks after midnight, so this is his hungry/thirsty face. I make the same face when I'm hungry.
Watching a little TV, LOL
This is right after they gave him some medicine to relax him before surgery.
Someone's feeling good :) Ha!
It was the funniest thing watching him all loopy. This medicine would have been handy when he had colic....just sayin'.
Off to surgery. The nurses were so sweet and understanding...and how awesome that they take the kiddo's in a wagon to make it a little more fun? He was able to take his blanket and kitty :) Seriously, if you're concerned about your child's ear, nose, and/or throat, I recommend Dr. Vaidya from Southcrest. The nurses called the next day to check on him and to make sure we were doing OK.
After surgery -
Coming off the anesthesia was not so good. Once they were in surgery they noticed he had an ear infection AND a sinus infection, so they gave him antibiotics intravenously. He kept trying to take the needle out of his hand, so we had to hold his arms down until he calmed down. That was probably the worst part.
The day after, he was already doing better. We planned a fun day for him which I'll blog next time.
It was his first surgery, so naturally I recorded some footage. :) *Sorry teenage Christian, but did you expect anything less from me? It's FUTURE BLACKMAIL. Yes, that IS the kind of mother you have. :) *
