My 1st Surgery
May 11, 2010. My papas' birthday and my first surgery. When I was born only one of my man parts dropped down into place and my doctor had to put the other one down into place with surgery. I had to be at Palmetto Children's Hospital at 6 am with my Mommy and Daddy. I went to registration and they had a race car I could play in. I loved holding the steering wheel! My Papa, Granny, Pawpaw, Mawmaw, Nana, and Aunt Kim all came to be with me. After I was registered they took me, Mommy, and Daddy to a room and changed me into a gown and I got to play with a toy and spend time sleeping in Mommy and Daddy's arms. Then the doctors came in and talked and made Mommy sign alot of papers. Then they came to take me to the operating room and take Mommy and Daddy to the family waiting room. It only took 45 mins for my operation and then I went to recovery. Daddy came in for a second then Mommy came in and I was put in her lap and given a bottle for the first time in over 12 hours. After my bottle I fell asleep and they wheeled me & Mommy to a regular room and than Daddy came back in. They had to give a breathing treatment because I sounded a little froggy, but it helped alot. Then it was time to go home. I'm doing pretty well but I'm in a good deal of pain. I've got good pain medicine though. Right now I can tell something went on and I'm not happy about it at all. It hurts a little to try and move around and I'm really out of it from being put to sleep, but hopefully in a day or so the pain won't be as bad and I'll be a happier baby boy. Mommy and Daddy hate seeing me in pain and it's hard to hold me and walk around with me and try to be as easy as possible. Mommy and Daddy have to go back to work 2morrow, but not at the same time so I won't have to leave my house until Friday morning. For the next two weeks I can't be in my exersaucer, bouncer, or swing and have to be careful not to hurt my man parts. I go back to the urologist on June 21st to make sure all is healing and back to normal.
