This has been a long time coming.
As happy as I am to have it all over with, I am surprised that the surgery was just the beginning, I have one ornery little guy on my hands- hopefully he heals fast and feels better.
We got up at 4:00 am to get to Sacred Heart in Spokane by 6:00 am (OK- so we got there at like 6:30- whoops.)
|Everyone pretty much conked out!|
He looked so cute in his surgical gown!
The highlight of the day had to be when the anesthesiologist gave him some "funny juice" to ease separation. He was became so relaxed and laughed lazily at everything.
As soon as he was gone, John left with the kids to run some errands and I sat down and the only thing running through my head were the lists of complications that were highly unlikely- but likely if they have to tell me right?
Anyway, I was just beside myself and after about an hour, I looked at my watch realized it had been about 20 minutes...not even close to an hour! My stomach was in knots and I felt so anxious.
I was so relieved when John popped his head in the waiting room.While we waited for William (5+ hours!) The kids kept themselves busy playing Candyland, coloring, playing with legos...and then at one point I couldn't find Johnny (this is becoming common, huh?)...it took me a minute, then there he was, sitting on a couch, reading the bible. I asked him what he was doing and he looked at me like I was the dumbest person on the planet. "Reading, mom."
Finally, we were able to go see Mr. Wills. I didn't recognize him at first, he was so swollen- which I had been warned about, but apparently didn't believe.
John though William's feet looked so small! And they did.
He was attached to John and just felt best when John was holding him, it was pretty sweet.
I'm a lucky girl!
All in all, it was a great day with how well the surgery went. I am keeping my fingers crossed William sleeps well tonight.
Well, tomorrow is our final day of packing!!
