Harrison's Surgery


This April Harrison had to go in and have his tonsils and adenoids removed. We started the day off at 6 am. The nurse told me he could eat four hours prior to his surgery. He was scheduled for 10:30 that morning. We received a call at 8 am asking us if we could come in earlier. So we went in and waited and waited.

We decided to take a family pic in the waiting room. When they finally took us back at 12:30! Two hours late. We thought that things would finally get going. Harrison got changed into his surgery pajama's and figured out how the bed worked.

And we waited some more! Harrison got in some cuddle time with Mom, played with the bed some more, and watched some T.V. to pass the time. He was such a trooper considering he had not eaten or had anything to drink since 6 am.

Finally they came in to get us around 1:30. Mark went back with him. I was just way to emotional to go.

The surgery went great, but the recovery was really hard.

We spent a few hours in recovery, and then we were off to go home. It was a long day, and a longer 2 week recovery! In the end the surgery did it's job. He is sleeping so much better! He looks and feels so much better! We feel very thankful to have a happy, healthy, energetic guy around the house now.
