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.

Amen! So glad to hear that everything went well. One of our very best friends is a pediatric fellow at Vandy! I know that surgery is no fun for you to endure - and no fun for Gabe either, but the best part is he won't remember any of it. I hope he sleeps well tonight - and my prediction is that he will be back to normal tomorrow! Kids are so resilient!
