Surgery went well and after 7 1/2 hrs., we were able to see him again. He's in pain, swollen in the neck from the intubation tube and neck from the surgery. His airway started to close a little last night so we were watching him closely but he's paste the worst of it now. He's scared mostly as he's worried there are more pokes and owies to come. He's got IVs in both feet and one in his artery in his right hand which is boarded up to protect it. Hopefully we'll get released from the PICU today to be moved to the general surgery recovery floor. We are watching Team Umi Zoomi (reminiscent of BMT days) and he drank a little apple juice. I'll post more details later.
