Day 28--It was SAD, so SAD!

According to the surgeons, the whole procedure went well. But it was so sad to see him waking up from the anesthetics--I could see that he was in pain and so agitated, but he couldn't even cry because he had that tube down his throat again. When I left this evening, they still hadn't extubated him because he needed so much pain medication to let him calm down and sleep that he wasn't quite with it enough to completely be in charge of his own breathing. It was sad for a mom to see her little helpless baby like that.

Thanks for all of your prayers!! He really is doing well and I felt so strengthened today. Every time I looked at his pitiful, pained expressions and thought I ws going to lose it I was able to keep it to a tear or two instead of a flood. THANKS!

So glad that the surgery went well. Randy will miss seeing Dexter at University! Hopefully you'll be home soon and we can come see you there.
