Can you believe that happy little face? This is Monkey at 7:30 this morning in a hospital having had no milk since 3am. The Monk is one game little dude. I was not nearly as chipper.
I never imagined I would feel this good about my baby undergoing surgery, but I am over the moon. Today’s scan revealed precisely what we were hoping for. A simple dermoid on his nasal bone that is nowhere in the neighborhood of his brain. There were no other nasty surprises to be found and he came out of anesthesia like he was waking up from a nap. When we walked into recovery he was gripping a bottle of Pedialyte for all he was worth. The nurse who was caring for him said it was his second and he had woken only moments before. That’s our Monkey!
We’ve got a surgery to schedule, but it sounds like it will be pretty straightforward. It’s likely that it will take less time than the scans he got today. He’s got to go under again and he’ll have a scar, but other than that we’re home free. There are two very happy Mommies at my house tonight.
I’m so grateful to every one of you who kept us in your thoughts today. Thank you from the bottom of my happy Mama heart.
