Surgery is done!

Matthew came out of surgery with flying colors. His g-button is in and looks good. He, however is OUT OF IT! He is sleeping well, and that is good. They are not going to let him have anything to eat until at least tomorrow morning. So, I'm hoping, for my sanity, that he sleeps, because I don't do well with crying babies (especially my own).

If all goes well he'll be able to eat tomorrow and maybe home tomorrow afternoon/evening. They will be using his button for his meds tonight and that is it.

Another good thing. Because he is admitted under the surgeon instead of the hospitalist we won't have all the residents rounding like we normally do. Sigh of relief for me! We'll just have the surgeon and surgery resident rounding. (When we've been here in the past we get 3 pediatric residents that all round at separate times, the hospitalist, the neurology resident, the neurologist, the neurosurgery resident and the neurosurgeon all rounding on Matthew. His room is a revolving door. So I'm hoping this will be better, cross your fingers)

Thanks for all your prayers!! I'll keep you all updated as well as I can!

Praise the Lord! So glad that Matthew came through the surgery so well. Still praying that the g-button will make things smoother for ya'll.

And we're excited for you about the probable fewer visits/interruptions from residents, etc! Hopefully you'll both be able to get a good night's sleep.
