What a horrendous day. Thanks to all of those who kept us in their thoughts and what not. We’re all just fine – and most importantly – Mason is doing great.
We checked in at 8 a.m. for a 9:15 procedure. But then it got bumped (mind you Mason had not eaten since 4 a.m.) to 11:15. Then 12:15 p.m. Then 1 p.m. He did not go back with the nurses for his procedure until after 1 p.m.! He was starving and raving mad, and just couldn’t figure out why I would not feed him.
The operation didn’t last very long, only about 40 minutes. He came out of the anesthesia pretty well and all his vitals looked good. He ate well, and kept it down. So they let him go! He has two incisions. Not much to look at as the stitches are inside and there is some kind of fancy super glue on the outside. His IV site isn’t too unsightly (his NICU wounds were much worse).Now we’re home and it is so quiet.
Cooper is over at school. Mason is sleeping. And the house is dead silent.
Here are some pictures from the day. These will be great for Mason when he is a little older. He’ll be able to look through them and see that he was brave and strong. He might have a problem with his little dress.
