Many Thanks!!

Well we have been home for a few hours and Gabriel has had some good moments and some bad moments. I have to say I like Vandy Children's Hospital. They told us everything they were doing and were going to do to our sweet boy. They let us be with him up until the anesthesiologist carried him in his arms to the OR. They said the "ouchies" go in after the gas mask puts him to sleep to reduce the tears for us and him. When he woke up in recovery we were called back instantly and I got to give him a juice bottle because Gabe is use to eating quite a bit during the day. He was extremely fussy and cried most of the time he was in there even after a nurse tried dancing to make him happy. We all guessed it was the gas from the laparoscopy because they gave him a block that would last around 6 hours so we knew the incisions could not be hurting yet. Anyway both of the boys were up in his belly so they only did one side this time and Lord help us we have to do this again in 6 months. He has 4 different incisions and he is just pitiful and momma hates to see him hurt. We gave him Lortab earlier and it seems to have helped. All in all that is our day. Right now he is in a boppy in my lap sleeping. I am praying for a good night but am preparing for the worse. I appreciate all the kind comments and prayers that went up for Gabe today. Continue to keep him in your thoughts as his little body recovers. You guys are the greatest.

I don't post very often these days but just wanted to ask all of my blogger buddies to say an extra prayer tomorrow. My little Gabriel is having surgery Wednesday. We have known since last year that he was going to have to but now that it is upon us I just want all the prayers we can get for him. It is a little boy surgery but a little more extensive because he will be having a laparoscopy and he just seems too little for such procedure but if we wait later in life he could be at risk for cancer. So anyway keep my boy in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. I will update you on how he is doing when he allows me to use the computer. Thanks!!
