I should post something here

tattoo


To start: Surgery went well and Ike is resting as best he can in the PICU. He's complaining of a headache (duh) and so far no nausea (yes!) So we shall see how the night goes.

 

He was anxious and wiggly this morning. We got here in plenty of time. And then we sat for 3 hours in the pre-op room. Ike kept himself entertained with either my our Joe's phone. They finally wheeled him off at 1:15. The surgeon came out almost exactly 3 hours later to tell us how it went. Shortly afterwards he was transfered to PICU, and woken up. He's been spending much of the time sleeping. And has recently woken up enough to ask to watch TV. He's drinking apple juice and is getting morphine. And believe it or not, he's really, really quiet. It's kinda nice. :)

 

Waiting....waiting....and waiting....

 

In his bed, asleep and quiet.

thanks for the pictures... oddly it's reassuring to SEE him there, I assume second pic is post-surgery?

love to you all...
(p.s. I have this idea of letting Ike start a bacon-grease candle from my jar o'bacon-grease because I think he'll think it's fun.)

It's so sad to see kids all hooked up to everything :*(
