Isn't he the CUTEST?! If only our morning started out this good!
This was taken with my phone while we were waiting to be called back so they could get all his vitals.
Kyler woke up on the WRONG side of the bed & was very GRUMPY as you can tell from his face. It was a fight just to get him in his carseat. He did not sleep well at all!
He wasn't tired at all!
Awee...I had to get a picture of his first pair of shoes hanging in Daddy's truck! I need to find Lana's & put one of each up! :o)))
Ready to go...but in the mean time he wanted to play & made a couple new friends! I didn't take pictures cause that may have been weird for other parents.
Surgery got pushed back an hour...thank goodness we remembered his games! He loves his Nintendo DS "The Backyardigans" game.
Waiting in yet another room for the anesthesiologist...I cannot believe he passed out like this on the floor!
Finally in recovery...we had to wait an hour after his surgery to see him because it took him awhile to wake up. I finally just told the nurses that were calling other parents back I wanted to see my child! I was escorted to him about 2 minutes later. :o)))
Are you sure?!He was so over the
cage crib that he wouldn't go back in it. Everytime I tried he woke up & attempted to scream...it wasn't happening.
So we asked if we could please have a normal bed so we all could get some rest! They read us the rules about having a toddler in an adult bed & reminded us that if he fell out they were not reliable...he wasn't going anywhere with all the meds in his system. Not a problem...bring us a bed!
Finally drinking fluids the next morning, they didn't want to wake him up in the middle of the night to give him his meds...not sure why but he woke up in sooo much pain as you can tell from the picture below! He got meds at 8pm & then not again until 9am the next morning. I don't think I'd be trying to drink or eat anything either! His last nurse told us it's easier to prevent than to treat so to stay on top of all his meds as prescribed.
His HR was a little crazy throughout the night from the anesthesia...dropping anywhere from 60-45, his alarms were going off all night! But overall everything went well & he is now (fingers crossed) on his way to recovery. He has a check up in 4 weeks! He has been sleeping like a CHAMP!
He hasn't been awake before 8am & has only gotten in our bed one morning since we got home from the hospital. It's been wonderful to sleep through out the entire night...for all of us!
