Jacob’s First Surgery

Posted on May 13, 2012 by | 0 comments

All ready for surgery!

Jacob had surgery to correct his deviated septum yesterday.  Anna and I accompanied him and held his hand as long as we could.  Everyone was very kind and loved Anna.  After a bit of nervousness about the IV and a consult with the surgeon, Jacob was taken off to the operating room while we were shown the family waiting lounge.  They gave us a flashing beeper like you get at a busy restaurant to alert us when the surgery is over and when we can finally get back to our dear Daddy.

From the second we entered the lounge Anna started making friends, waving and smiling to everyone.  She is our little social butterfly.  I was amazed at how she kept up her energy to explore and play and wave and smile even right through nap time as we waited.  I was very relieved when the surgeon told us all went well.  Jacob was quite the bleeder and is still wearing his drip pad/nose diaper today.  And although he is a bit tired, he isn’t in much pain, for which we are very grateful.  Jacob is looking forward to being able to blow his nose again, and I can’t wait to share diaper duty again with my currently disabled husband.  Of course, I have loved all this awesome one-on-one play time with my bright shining light of a daughter.
