Surgery is a Sucess

Zak's surgery went well today. He had a hard time waking up - Just crabby. I went down before the surgery. Chris stayed there during and after the surgery. I went back to be with Callie and Chris brought Zak up when they let him go from recovery. Zak and I got to snuggle for a while until he woke up more.. and then went potty on me :) Chris and Zak went home for the night. We were both commenting today how big he is getting. Granted he is only 28 pounds, however he is getting hard to move him around since he is so strong and really does not know how to hold on and help. No wonder our backs hurt. I must say we make a great team and Chris is a great father. I always hear stories of how the dad is not as involved as the mom would like. I am so thankful he is so involved and does such a great job. We truly are a team. That is the only way we could do it with both of the kids.

Callie is also doing well today. She started her tube feedings today with Pedilite. She has been tolerating it well so we just changed her over to breast milk. She is just on maintenance, the same amount she would get through an IV. Throughout the night we will add more depending on how she feels. Later tonight or tomorrow we will start her on the bottle as well. She is such a strong little girl. We are hopping to have her home Sunday, but we will see how things go.

Don't forget to write a comment or send an e-mail - we love to hear from everyone.

  1. I am glad that both Zak & Callie are doing well. I also am glad to hear you and chris are also doing well. Can't wait to see all of you. Life is kind of quiet without you. My prayers are with you and your family.
