Surgery Day

This morning Kayson had his surgery. We got to Primary Childrens and got checked in at about 7:30 this morning. Then after a little wait we went back into the exam room where they checked his vital signs and made sure he was ready for surgery. They had us change him into an infant hospital gown with little pants and socks and it was off to the Pre-Op waiting room. After about an hour of waiting the Anethesialogist came and gave us some instruction then took Kays off for surgery. They started by placing a little mask over his mouth and nose to make him fall asleep. Then the Dr. placed a probe into his absess until it reached is rectum, and cut down to the probe. From there they scraped out the lining of his skin inside to clear the infection. It all went really well and they got it all cleaned out. The worst part of it all so far was him coming out of the anesthesia. The cut is pretty deep and painful, thankgoodness for Tylenol! Here are a few pictures we took throughout.

Here is Kayson at 6:30 this morning before we left.

Kayson and Mommy. He is hungry as can be!!

He finally fell asleep about 10 min. before his surgery. The nurse gave him a Teddy Bear to keep.

Us in the recovery room. This was the first time he had really eaten at all today & that was around 9:45.

He had a hard time comming out of the anesthesia but once it was mostly out of his system we had our happy little boy back!!

Kays and Daddy playing before we got to leave.

In the elevator going home. Once he got dressed and we left the room he was all smiles!

You did so good today Kays! We are so proud of you! We love you!

Yay! I'm so glad it went so well! He looked so darn cute in that gown. Now we just hope it heals up really soon, right? What a champ he is! I can't believe he was smiling so soon afterwards.

Sorry about last night. We finally got him down at 9:00, which I knew was too late for you cause of your early start today.
