Hudson's surgery went great this morning. He was such a big boy and was so brave. We were very proud of him. He didn't even cry when we had to hand him over to the nurse. I'm proud to say that we didn't cry either, although it is pretty awful watching your son go through those double doors not having a clue as to what was about to happen. One of the worst parts of the whole morning was not the hour wait in the waiting room (why do they tell you 7 am when they really mean 8 am???), which was pretty bad, but rather it was getting that darn gown on Hudson. He did not want to wear it! He is a boy and it did look like a dress! :) When he got back to our room after surgery, one of the first things he said was that he wanted to go home and watch bowling. What?!?! It was funny.
They made Hudson drink liquids in the room and let it sit for a while to make sure he wouldn't get sick and of course he did great with that (he was laying down not moving--of course he did great). As soon as we get him to the car and I start backing out, the projectile vomiting started. And, it continued until after we got home. He is just like his mama...we do not do anesthesia very well! I felt so bad for him--he was so pitiful. After a bath, I was able to get some food and juice in him and he was able to keep all that down. Thank goodness! We watched a movie and now he is fighting a nap. Nothing has changed there! I thought he would come home and want to zonk, but nope, he wanted to play (even though I KNOW he needs a nap).
Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. We are glad it is over and hopefully we will be ear infection free for a while!
