Surgery for Max

Wednesday (the 10th) Max is having surgery. He is getting his tonsils out and new tubes placed in his ears. Hopefully we will not be staying over night but the hospital told me to pack a bag just in case. If he is drinking, keeping it down and handling his pain then he can go home. Send good vibes his way!!

He will be out of school the rest of the week. I have told him he is having surgery on his ears and throat and tried to explain it to him. He gets upset and says NO! He will know what is up as soon as we arrive there at 8:45 in the morning. He has remembered what goes on there the last couple of times. When the time comes to say goodbye and give kisses he gets very clingy and upset. Understandably so! I will bring Ike with me. He is very attached to me (saying it lightly!) plus he still nurses. I just really think he would give the grandparents a hard time if he stayed home with them. The grandparents are here to watch Sam and Joe for as long as I need. Hopefully only Wednesday though (as I hope to be home by afternoon)! The surgery should take about an hour then recovery 2-4 hours.

Think of Max on Wednesday!!

Ask the doctor if he can have some oral versed while waiting with you in the surgery holding area. He will get really sleepy and I bet he won't care. Look at the post below of Gabi's surgery. The 1st pics are in the surgery holding area and she is super mellow from the versed. The real proof is in the video. Gabi is sensitive to noise and she wasn't even freaking out that there was another child screaming the whole time in there.

Lord, we know that Max is in Your hands. Please be with the doctors as they perform his surgery and help him to come through with flying colors. Be with his family while he's in surgery and recovery; giv them peace and assurance. Thank You, Lord.
