surgery recap

my day:

woke up at 3:30 a.m.

arrived at the hospital at 6:30 for surgery at 7:30

passive aggressively scolded by the nurse for not arriving by 6 a.m. (seriously?!)

surgery at 7:30

removed "huge" adenoids

in recovery by 7:50

Rhys screamed

O2 sats are a little low

Rhys screamed

sat in recovery for four hours

while Rhys screamed

dr decides to keep Rhys overnight to monitor him

Rhys screamed

dr discovers nurse didn't have pulseox attached correctly

corrected pulseox reveals a much better O2 sat, but still a little lower than desired (mid-high 80s)

sat in recovery for another two hours

have I mentioned that Rhys screamed?

ate lunch in shifts

moved to a private room

came home to take over Z&B while Cody packed a bag

Cody headed back to the hospital

NP tells Cody Rhys is going to be on a clear liquid diet

after the ENT tells us he can eat whatever he wants whenever he feels up to it

Rhys eats a HUGE bowl of oatmeal because he is starvin' marvin

which bring us to right now... here's to hoping Cody has a pleasant night with the little man

PS - big thanks to Grammy for helping out today!
