L's surgery went really well yesterday. it was a bit longer than they thought it would take but he did great. he aspirated, slightly during the surgery which got us an automatic night's stay in the hospital. so while B went home to get some real sleep, my primary job has been to stop L from pulling out his IV and from taking his pulse/ox off. fun times. we did both sleep for a luxurious hour and a half for which i'm grateful for. we are praying to be released super early this am so we can get some real rest at home. we know when his pain meds have thoroughly kicked in as his favorite thing to do then is to try to remove his bandages. no thank you very much. thank you for your prayers. we know that the Lord protected him from numerous complications and for that, we are even more grateful.
