In the PICU

T is resting quietly after a very long day. We joined him in his room at 2045.

The surgery before his took longer than expected, so he didn't go back to the OR until 1535.  They put in a PICC line and placed special monitors all over his body to keep track of his nerve function throughout the surgery.

His actual surgery began at 1700. The surgery was successful with no indications of any damage done to any nerves. The surgery was much longer than expected because he struggled with anesthesia. It took a lot of medication to keep him under. Adult doses. For our two year old. I hope he never requires anesthesia as an adult.

He is sleeping peacefully. He looks taller.

We are in very good hands.

Thank you for all your love and prayers.
