We are home from Eli's surgery....lots of pics

Everything went excellent...as far as the surgery...the waiting on the other hand...they werer 2 hours behind!!! He was supposed to go into surgery at 12 and he didn't get in until 2!!! 14hours without food! 6hours without anything to drink! AND they gave him the sedative too early so it wore off and they had to dose him again. Sad But he was happy as a clam and didn't care that people were taking him from me lol.

Below are pictures from today. the after pictures do show his bloody incision....just a warning incase someone doesn't like the sight of blood. Well who DOES like the sight of blood...lol...i meant if it bothered you. Smile ok i've been awake too long...now i'm rambling!

in the waiting room

in the pre-op area...

after his sedation cocktail lol

The first time we got to see him...

Finally awake

At home...the only thing he wanted was "melmo" (Elmo)

And bedtime. I leave the "no-no's" on when we can't watch him like a hawk. I told him he could watch Lion King in his room if he wore his no-no's. He said ok, let me put them on him and hoped into bed. lol

He only has to wear the no-no's for 48 hours this time. his last two face surgeries he had to wear them for 2 weeks! Sad

Poor little guy. Looks like he is handling everything great though. Glad to hear he only has to wear his 'no-no's' for 48 hours. It must be tough on him to wear them

Wow he's such a strong and brave little guy. I can only imagine that these surgeries are harder on you than him. Glad he only has to keep his No-no's on for 48 hours this time.
Sorry that they were running late and he had to go even longer without any food/drink in addition to having to dose him up twice. It's a shame they couldn't have told u ahead of time so you could've come to the hospital later.

Anyway glad he's home and that things are going well.
keeping you in our thoughts and prayers

one of my best friend's son has had several of the surgeries, I think the "no-no's" were the hardest thing for both of them. looks like Eli's handling it like a champ!!!! that sucks that you had to wait longer, but he looks so happy after his cocktail. Wink

WTG Eli, you're such a big boy!

Out of the loop, no idea what a no-no is ...

But I'm glad he pulled thru it fine and that you did too!

What a brave boy!! I hope he heals up quickly. Is this going to be his last surgery?

This will not be his last surgery. It may be his last cosmetic surgery though...depending on how this one heals. The next one he would have done is a bone graft for the roof of his mouth. They will do this when he is 4 or 5. and after that he will have several dental surgeries, has he does have a missing tooth and they are coming in very crooked.

BTW, Charys...OMG Kayson is looking like such a big boy!!! Look how much he's grown!! Such a handsome little man!!!
