We’re Post-OpPosted: September 8, 2011
Thanks for all of the support and love and good energy, everyone. It’s working!
Das Baby’s surgery went well, and we’re now in his room. His pulmonary status is being closely monitored and looks good so far. We’re waiting to start feeding him. He was definitely in some pain post-op, but he got morphine (whoa!) and Tylenol, and they’ve calmed him down.
The tube seems less scary than it did on the tiny model doll, and it would appear that Das Baby doesn’t feel too hampered by it yet. He’s already rolled onto his tummy and briefly got up on all fours.
He wants to be snuggled (and who wouldn’t want to snuggle him?), but he wants his snuggler to stand and bounce. No sitting allowed. So our arms are falling off and our backs are stiff, but it’s so worth it.
So, so worth it.
Many thanks again to all! We’ll keep you posted!
