Surgery Sucks!

Reporting to the hospital at 6:15 a.m.


First photo taken at 7:00, tired & hungry but in good spirits




Very happy and doing the happy dance .........lets get this show on the road!




In these next two photos we are waiting for Daniel to wake up. After surgery he woke up and was in some pain so they gave him demerol. They felt it was better to let him wake up in my arms then to be with complete strangers.

Thank You to that smart nurse!



















Daniel coming off the drugs and realizing that his eye is covered and his doesn't like where he is at. We needed to get him to drink something and he didn't want any part of that. Every time he cried his oxygen levels went down to the low 60's. That is quite startling when those alarms start going off! Freaked me out a bit, I thought I was going to need some oxygen after that.

That was my WTF! moment.


So, Daniel is now adenoid free. He also had his right tear duct probed. Oh yeah, and the cyst under his upper eyelid and growth that was on the cyst were removed and sent off for evaluation. Enough for one visit, ya think? Now we wait for the results of that....doctor didn't seem worried about it, so for once I'm not going to be yet either!

Now he is asleep at home in bed.......protecting his eye to make sure no one comes near him again! My poor baby.

Big hugs to Daniel from all of us.

We hope Daniel is feeling better now and that the surgery will help. Hopefully you will never have to do another boogerectomy again.
