Tanner's Surgery

Well our little on had his surgery today. We had to be at MCG at 630 this morning. They are wonderful there. We got there they gave him a toy the nurses were wonderful. They gave him some verset (I probably spelled that wrong) which is a drug that relaxes them and makes them forget and makes them silly. He was so funny. He was talking to everyone who walked past his door. The nurses stopped outside the door and played pick a boo, and pattty cake with him. When it was time for him to go to the OR the lead nurse and anastisolaist argued over who carried him. While we were in the waiting room the nurse called us every hour and let us know what was going on. It was the longest 3 hours of our lives. When it was finally over the doctor came and got us and talked to us . He said everything went well. He told us about the tube in him and all that good stuff. Of course we had tons of questions. Then they finally took us back to the recovery room and thats when I about lost it. He had all these wires on him and an IV. He woke up like the minute we got there. I was aloud to pick him up and rock him. I did not want to put him down. He came out of the anasthisia really good. The nurse was shocked. He never cried. Not even when she took out his IV and by the time we could take him home he was still out of it but happy, waving at all the nurses playing patty cake. Now we're in for a long week. We have to change his diaper like every hour. He has to wear 2 diapers. The first on we have to cut a whole in so it supports him and the tube, then we have to put another diaper on top of it to catch the urine from the tube. He has to take 3 medicines. Just a lot of stuff to care for. So the dr gave me 2 weeks off from work. I'll probably go back after the tube comes out on the 9th. We'll just have to wait and see. Right now he's asleep with his daddy. We're all worn out. Hopefully tomorrow he'll be able to play. He tried to walk today but he cant keep his balance poor guy. Well I 'm off to find something to eat. Later ya'll.
