He's Home!


Hello all! Samuel is home... early! We brought him at 11:30 a.m. and got seen at 1:00 p.m. He was given some "giggle juice" (something to help him relax-he acted like he was drunk-it was hysterical) and was taken away at 1:45. He had surgery starting at 2:45 and they were done at 3:10. We got to back at around 4:00 and they gave us some surprising news... he was being sent home. He was very angry when he awoke from surgery and his face was red and hot when we saw him. But he had stopped crying and was sucking down some apple juice... he quickly fell asleep in our arms. Since we've been home he has slept and slept and slept. We just gave him some ibuprofen but we'll see if he needs stronger drugs... we have Tylenol with Codeine if he needs it. So now it's rest and recovery. He can get sponge baths tomorrow but for the next 10 days no water immersion (soaking in the tub).


We are so grateful that all is well. They made a nice incision and we're just praying he continues to heal well. Thanks for your love, prayers, and support.

Praise God! Great news! Hey... remind me again, what exactly was this procedure for? I realized when I was praying for him I wasn't sure... was it his heart?

So excited! Praise God for a surgery gone well and a baby at home with his family! I will be praying for much grace and peace in your home as Samuel recovers. Please give him kisses for me. And please give some kisses to Miss. Libby for me too. Love you much. :)

Michelle- He was getting a hydrocele repaired so that he wouldn't get a hernia. He can't be on any "straddle" toys if you get my drift :) No bikes, etc. for him.

Thanks for praying! So glad he doesn't need cardiac surgery... we've already ruled that one out, definitely!

Love,

JL
