Surgery is over!!!!

I'm finally getting a chance to update on his surgery. Everything went great! We had a slight delay this morning, but our doctor found him a bed in ICU so surgery went on. Nothing unexpected happened. They said it was uneventful. He spent about 3 hours in recovery because during his surgery they gave away his bed. No big deal, just inconvenient. Of all the things that could have gone wrong that was not a big deal.

We saw him about 1 hour post op and he looked swollen already. He did get a bottle of Pedialyte at 4 which he threw up almost immediately. He was given some Tylenol/codeine for his pain. It was pretty uneventful in recovery. He was moved to PICU at 5:30 and he started getting very fussy. I could tell he was hurting but there was nothing that could be done as far as pain management with out a doctors orders. I had to leave for hsift change at 6:30 and decided to come home and rest. He's gonna need me a lot tomorrow and I need to be rested. Thank you to all those who sat at the hospital with us. Much appreciated. I'm heading off to eat some dinner and go to bed. I'll upload pictures tomorrow. Bye
