We are good.

The surgery went well - I think I cried more than Hulk did. Aaron went into the OR with him (to watch him 'gently go to sleep' as the doc said... and yes, that made me cry) - pregnant woman aren't allowed back there - and then we waited almost 2 hours for the procedure to be over. I was good for about 20 minutes... and then I was almost staring the door down for the doc to come in and tell us everything was ok.

And it was. He did great, everything seems fixed (we'll know more as things heal) and he woke up really well from the surgery. When we were let in to see him in recovery, that is when I cried for a bit - he looked so helpless there with all the tubes and everything!

The surgery was at 7:30, we got home at 12, and he fell asleep for about 3 hours. Then we got up and played a bit, took a walk around the block, and now he seems totally burned. So we gave him dinner and a bottle and put him to bed. I'm going to try to keep up with his pain meds until we go to sleep and hopefully he will stay nice and comfortable and get some good rest tonight. We go back on Weds of next week to for a follow up with the doc and get the dressings off... I'll be happy to get this all behind us!

Even though you wanted to be back there with Hulk, I'm sure it would have been even harder to see him go to sleep.

Glad to hear he seems to be in good spirits.
