Surgery

Matthew's surgery was today at 9 am. Everything went as expected except......they let us go home!!! Originally they said it would require an overnight stay, but Dr. Azarow said that it was okay to go home this evening if he did well throughout the day. Needless to say, he woke up starving! He ate 3 times between 12 and 4 pm. So we were off for home!

He is pretty tired and has some discomfort; but as always; TYLENOL to the rescue! He's to take it every 4 hours round the clock for 2 days to help with discomfort and to keep fever at bay. I guess this surgery pretty much goes hand in hand with fever, go figure. It was the first thing the doc warned us about.

We're praying this is the last surgery for awhile!

Hurray! I am glad everything went well and that you got to bring your sweet baby home so quickly.

I too will pray that there are no more surgeries for a LONG time!
