the happy patient

 Here's the happy patient. He's already walking around on his cast like it's no big deal. He walked up and down the stairs already. Mr. Independent didn't want any help! His surgery went well according to the dr. His second toe on the right foot is now straight. He's in the cast till feb. 14th and then he gets it off! He actually has a pin in his toe with a yellow ball at the end of it (Gabe calls it a jellybean).
 This is right before he went into surgery. I wimped out of going into the operating room but Daddy was there with him while they put him under. They even let Tiger attend the surgery and have a special band of his own!
 When they rolled Gabe into the operating room all the drs and nurses had the mouth-masks on so Michael called them "pirates". Gabe liked that a lot i guess. He did really well in pre-op, only fussed at the end. He wasn't too happy when he woke up in a cast with an IV and tubes all connected to him! I went down to recovery and he just cried and cried asking for me to pick him up and take off the cast. The staff could not have been kinder and more soothing. I was starting to get upset and they kept bringing things for Gabe and telling me that all kids woke up crying. He scored a lion stuffed animal, coloring book and pencils, play-doh, and a new sippee cup. I was able to get him to eat a purple popsicle too.

He calmed down a bit when he was moved back to his room and Michael & Evie could meet up with us. Michael crawled right into bed with Gabe and read him some stories which helped distract him a bit. I went and picked up his meds. The dr. prescribed a mild narcotic (tylenol with codine) for the first day. He's already off it today and only on motrin. He did MUCH better when we got home and he had some lunch and watched chitty-chitty bang bang.

 Evie giving Daddy kisses! And she rolled over last night! Finally!
 Bacon and eggs for the brave little guy :)
As you can see, he's doing great. Already trotting around the house dumping toys and back to his ornery curious self! We all feel better that it's over, in fact yesterday the whole family took a 3.5 hr nap we were so exhausted! And in bed by 10. Nulkie has a few things to do today and then hopefully is off by the afternoon. Hope you all have good weekends!
