Home and Well

Today was the big day for Colton. The boys woke up at 6:45am this morning, and Colton was so excited about having his tonsils taken out.

Here's those big boys that have been causing so many problems.

We got to the Surgery Center at 10:30 and they took us right back to Colton's area. We downloaded a few new games for him on the Leapster Explorer to keep him occupied. And there is Winchester who went into surgery with him.

Colton thought it was pretty cool being hooked up to so many things. He is such an excellent patient.

I was able to go back and be with him until I fell asleep. But not until on put on my "buddy outfit." I really love this picture.

Watching him go to sleep was a little unnerving. They warned me he would have an excited time period (like 15 seconds) then he would go limp. It was more like a panic stage then out. But his eyes were still half open, which gave me the chills some. It was really hard to kiss him then leave, but I knew he was in great hands.Colton had a difficult time waking up. The anesthesia didn't set well with his stomach and he was having a hard time keep liquids down. But after an hour nap, he was very much ready to go. I'm not going to lie, while he was having a rough time, I was a little nervous. I knew it was normal, but kind of scary, too.

Colton is very interested in being able to blow bubbles. He just hasn't been able to yet. So when he started blowing bubbles during his nap, I just had to have a picture!

We are now home. Colton is enjoying unlimited chocolate ice cream, spiderman popsicles, and gatorade. And there is a ton of soft goodies from Grandma Dru that he hasn't dug into yet. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I am glad this surgery was routine and went as planned.
