Baker's Surgery

After surgery

Just wanted to let everyone know that Baker's surgery went well Friday. He had tubes in his ears, a bronch scope down his throat, and a sedated hearing test done. We left Thursday night and headed to Birmingham. We had to be at the hospital at 5:30 the next morning so we decided that we would go up the night before and stay with Derek's Uncle Don. It is a challenge to take Baker on an overnight trip because we have to load up EVERYTHING!!! I know it is hard for all parents to load up baby stuff, so imagine doubling all there stuff!! But over all we did well... we didn't forget Anything!! The next morning we woke up and it was less than 10 degrees in Birmingham. So we bundled up and threw a blanket on Baker and loaded back up to head to Children's Hospital. Got there on time and we went straight back to get his lab work done. Baker has very bad veins and it is hard to get blood from him. After 3 sticks I asked if they could just get his blood when they started his iv while he was asleep. Thank goodness they agreed. We went into the small room that they put you in to wait and the nurse came in to answer a bunch of questions. And we waited about 10 min for Doctor Hill to get to the hospital. As soon as they took him into the surgery he was gone about 30 min and then he was in recovery. He did so well that they let us go on home. They said everything was perfect now!!! We were on the road traveling back home by 11:30!!! Just wanted to post!!!
