Fairfax - On Friday Ryan had surgery to have his bump removed.  The medicine finally worked enough that we could get rid of the rest that was still there.  We reported to the surgical center bright and early for his 8:30 procedure.  He got checked in, put in a gown (which he did not like and kept trying to take off) and then went to a playroom to wait his turn.  Finally it was his turn and Mommy went with him to the operating room and stayed until he went to sleep (that only took about a minute).  After a little more than an hour, the doctor came out to tell us that everything went well and all the bump was gone (YAY!). 

We went back to recovery and Mommy held Ryan as he woke up.  He struggled with waking up and really wasn't sure what was going on.  He coughed, he cried, he coughed and cried again.  He didn't even want the grape popsicle that was offered to him.  Finally he came around and it was time to go home.  After we got home, he was his normal self and ready to take on lunch and his towys.

Once we got home he collapsed in the floor (briefly)

  1. Hi! I found your blog through another blog.. pretty much randomly. It is so scary to have our little ones go through something like this. I hope he has a speedy recovery and this takes care of it!

    I have a 2 year old little girl, Bella. I hope you don't mind me following your blog - feel free to follow mine. =)
