We will be checking into the hospital tomorrow bright and early (well, actually dark and early) for Bryce's surgery. He is having his hernia repaired, and has to also have the adhesion from his circumcision taken care of. We have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM for his surgery at 7:30 AM. The surgery should take an hour, and then we will be in recovery for a little while before we bring him home.
This is Bryce's third surgery in less than two years of life! He had surgery at 8 months old to have tubes put in his ears, and then again this past March to have the tubes re-done and his adenoids taken out. Add to that all of the crazy sicknesses he has add and his recent elbow injury, and I just feel so bad for him. He has been through so much.
I have a feeling that this surgery is not going to be as easy as the last two were. It is going to take longer, and I'm sure he is going to be VERY sore afterwards. The surgeon said he will be whipping around the next day and we will actually have to keep him calm so he doesn't hurt himself. I certainly hope that is the case.
Please keep my little Bryce in your thoughts and prayers tonight and tomorrow. I am sure that he will be just fine, but the thought of my baby going under anesthesia absolutely terrifies me. I can feel the anxiety taking over already, and I know I won't feel any relief until the surgeon comes out and tells me that the surgery went well and he is OK.
I'll leave you with a few pictures from our fun Saturday. We went for open play at Amaya Papaya yesterday for more than three hours, then we went to dinner. I just KNEW the kids would be sound asleep by the time we got home, but it was the exact opposite. We ended up in the back yard where the kids ran around like they had all the energy in the world. I don't know how they do it!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
