Monday’s Surgery

Just a quick note to ask you all to pray for my little one this Monday morning. He goes in for surgery at 7:00 CST for a minimal procedure. He’s scheduled to get his adnoids out and tubes put in his ears. This in itself is an easy low maintenance procedure, but my family is sensitive to anesthetics. Since this will be his first time put out, I thought I’d ask for a little more prayer than just my immediate family. I know God is in control, but when one of more come together in prayer……I think you know the rest of that saying. 🙂

Thank you to my blogging family for your prayers! I appreciate it. I will write once the surgery is over and he’s recovered. Have a wonderful weekend, and remember to count your blessings.

  1. It’s always an honor to pray~I’d love to add this to prayer Monday if it’s okay with you.

    Your comment made me laugh and laugh and laugh~boys ARE silly! My middle son has a special affinity to the word “bahookie”. Go figure! (((((HUGS))))) sandi

  2. I will be thinking of you. I know how scary that first time is, especially so since my heart stopped under anesthetic. HUGS to both of you. Sure it will go just fine

    Will do!

  4. Thank you to all of you who prayed for my little guy. He’s doing well as expected. Trying to keep him down to get more rest, but you know kids….they want to go go go!

  5. This morning was pretty easy. We had two people come by the waiting room, from our church, to pray with us over our son. I already had peace that he wouldn’t have any issues from the anesthetics. My mom is highly sensitive to it and almost hasn’t woken up from it a few times. We weren’t sure how my son would react.

    Giving him his sleep meds…what ever they were…was pretty funny. I saw my son at four stoned from the meds, which was funny but disturbing at the same time. The reality hit when the nice nurse walked out with him, and he slurred, “Hey yooou guyzzz. Wuhhaait fer mmee rrright hr.”
    Translation….he wanted us to wait for him to get out in our pre-op room.

    All in all it took 45 minutes or so. The nurse even called me from the surgical room when my son was put under to reassure me that everything was going smooth. The other mothers in the room all commented that they wished their doctor’s would have done the same thing for them. I thought it was extremely considerate of my doctor to make sure his staff handled everything with as much professionalism as they did. They all were fantastic at informing us every step of the way.

    We had a little issue with his oxygen levels when he came out of surgery, so they called me back to hold him in the post-op room. As soon as he felt my embrace, even as out of it as he was, he calmed and started breathing well.

    We got home at 10ish and he slept till noon. Murphy’s law…he was awake the whole time and as soon as I got him settled and sleepy again is when FedEx and UPS decided to ring the doorbell with a delivery. The dog started barking twice in 30 minutes and I had no one home to put a sign on the door…so all I could do is hold him and hope he’d sleep.

    It’s 9:18 p.m. and he’s gotten progressively better all day, which is what’s expected. My favorite part of the day is when he started saying, “Mom, I can hear so much better now! And I can breathe!” He smiled in amazement and took a deep breath in and out of his nose and continued, “See! And I can hear now!”

    Thank the Lord for the continued watch over me and my family!! And a huge thank you to all of you who felt led to pray and for those that spread the word to pray. You’re all prayer warriors and I appreciate each and every one of you.
