Last night was terrible, today was GREAT!
We arrived in St. Louis around 8 pm...Josh took Makena swimming, which she loved! After about 30 minutes we headed up to our room to get settled for the night...that took about an hour and a half and finally around 11:30 pm, I layed down. Malakai wasn't allowed to breastfeed past midnight, water only until 5:30 am, nothing after that. So he woke up at 2:20 am and cried and cried and cried until about 4:30...then I woke up at 6:15 to shower and get ready for the day. So he was exhausted (and so was everyone else!!) He cried the entire time I was getting ready...broke my heart because he didn't understand why he wasn't getting to eat. His appointment was at 9 am, we were told it would be about an hour. At 9:10 the surgeon came in and said he was all done and did great! 10 minutes!!! He took forever to come out of the anesthetic. We've never been allowed in the recovery room before, but he was OUT! We'd pick up his arm or leg and it would just flop on the bed. It took him about 1 1/2 hours to finally wake up. He just completly snapped out of it! He started to cry, I nursed him, and got him up to dress him and he just started to babble and smile! It was great :) He's a little bruised and is still bleeding a bit but otherwise...THE BROVIAC IS GONE!!!!! He's allowed to take a bath on Friday! I've never been so excited to give my baby a bath! He ate like a champ at both lunch and dinner and is now sleeping soundly. Hopefully he sleeps well tonight!
