The Big Day

The day has come and gone. Last Thursday we went in to the hospital for the second time...this time with Conner. After another persistant ear infection, surgery was scheduled. We had to be at the hospital at 6:00am. An early morning for all of us!! Conner couldn't eat for 6 hours prior, which I was really worried about. He did great for that part! Once we got to the hospital, we had to sit around and wait...for 2 hours before his surgery. This part was interesting. We played with toys, read books, watched the Disney channel, went for walks, charmed the nurses, etc. Anything to keep the little guy busy. Around 8:00, we got to meet the anesthesiologist, and the doctor and nurse came for him. Conner and I both did surprising well as they took him away. The next twenty minutes seemed to last an eternity. Soon the doctor reappeared and said the surgery went great and there was no active infection. After that sentance, I didn't hear a word he said because I heard my baby screaming as they were bringing him back to us. The nurse walked in the room with him and I couldn't get to him fast enough. I took him in my arms and was able to feed him and got him to settle down. About an hour later, they discharged us. We got Conner buckled up in his car seat and we were even out of the drive at the hospital and he was out. Sean and I went out for breakfast and out to look for new furniture and Conner never moved or woke up the entire time. After he woke up, he was good to go! We are all so glad that is over and are very ready for him to be ear infection free! Yay!!
