From the day he was born, we knew our little man was going to need a minor surgery before he was a year old. There’s been a lot of anxiety waiting for this to take place (parents worry!) but it’s all said and done now (yay!) and all went really well!
Xion is pretty much the bravest baby in the whole world and was happy and smiling as he was prepped for surgery. This made everyone in pediatrics smile as well. His happiness is contagious!
Shortly after this, they took our little boy back to surgery. This is the first time since leaving the hospital when he was born that he wasn’t with us or family. Both of us wanted to cry as our little boy headed back without us, but we secretly wanted to be strong for the other one. It was a really long two hours after that until everything was done. We couldn’t wait to see him. Everything went just as it should and for that we are extremely grateful.
It really didn’t take long for Mr. Pickles to be back to his happy, smiley self. The nurse taking care of him fell in love and carried him just outside the recovery room to brag to the other nurses that she got the “cute, happy baby” that morning. 😀 Yes, that’s our boy!
So we headed home and before we knew it, Xion was full speed ahead again. You’d seriously never even know he had surgery because he was crawling all over the place like normal. It was NOT easy getting our guy to try and relax. He just doesn’t know the meaning of the word. Let’s hope it’s a long, long, LONG time before he has to ever do anything like this again.
