 We prayed, He answered - He's good like that

He spent about 24 hours in the hospital. Some of it is routine for him now - but it still makes a mommy's heart skip a beat every time he gets wheeled into the operating room. I'm guessing that never goes away.

Lots of answered prayers going on here. Every thing went very smoothly with K's surgery. He didn't want to wake up after surgery and we had to wait a couple of hours for any kind of stirring from him in recovery - but the peaceful rest was really good for him. Between the recovery stage and getting admitted into a room his pain medication wore off and we witnessed some intense pain from him (hard for me!). Once that kicked in though - he did phenomenally well! Sitting up was obviously painful for a while, but he is in the room next to me right now and he is sitting and scooting around just like pre surgery. 

Also, I wasn't sure how very-active-and-newly-mobile Kai would handle being stroller bound for a very long day at the hospital. Let me tell you - this little man just impressed me to no end with his sweet, quiet cooing, patience in hours of waiting around, and disarming smiles to all who would happen to look his way. He took his naps in his stroller and never fussed one little bit. Wow! *Big sigh of relief*

Kai and I left the hospital around 5:45 pm and I went to pick up Noe and Jay from Grandma's house. They had a wonderful day and we are so grateful for Grandma's willingness to keep them all day. That made everything much more manageable for us!

Dave spent the night with K and proved, once again, to be super dad. He called the nurses about 20 minutes before the pain medication was to wear off and let them know they needed to get in there asap. He called and ordered pop tarts for a super hungry boy immediately after getting into their room and he set up the lap top with Little Einstein movies right away. This little boy was taken care of in the sweetest way! Love that man. Love this boy. We are blessed...
