Surgery day

They told me today that Dylan will have his surgery on Wednesday. I don't have a time yet for the surgery, but it should be the first surgery of the day. Dr. Hawkins is the surgeon and should be talking to us to let us know exactly what they will be doing for the surgery and what kinds of things to expect. They would do the surgery tomorrow, but he already has one big case for tomorrow and so he wouldn't be able to get to Dylan (who is also a big case) until around 4 or 5. They decided it would just be better to wait until Wednesday morning instead.

Dylan was actually being good enough that they didn't have to sedate him for his echo today. If he started to get upset, they would dip his pacifier in some sugar water and give it to him and he would settle right down. Hopefully his surgery will go just as well and easily.

Oh I nearly jumped out of my chair and I literally did clap. :) Oh what a cutie and Dr. Hawkin's is the VERY VERY BEST!!! He did ALL of Jack's surgeries. I'm so very excited for the best possible out come for you guys! We love you and our prayers are with you.

Well, I must say that he is absolutely adorable! From what I have gathered, the earlier they have the surgery, the better and quicker they recover. I know that with Caden at least, he didn't have his first surgery till he was about 3 1/2 months old, and his recovery was a very long process. So, that's great for you!

Please remember to post often, and I'll be checking your page constantly through this whole week.

Sending lots of prayers your way.

We're definitely keeping you guys in our prayers! And yes, I still feel guilty that I can't come down and be there to support you, not that there's really anything I could do. But still....
Good luck tomorrow!
