Canaan was very happy on the pre-op "goofy juice".
I may try to post a video from that another day...
They put a smily face where they were going to cut. (You can see his belly button in the left corner.) He thought that was hilarious... once again, the "goofy juice".
Today was long, and tiring. All of the little things that can go wrong, did. Traffic was terrible on the way in. It rained. His surgery was delayed almost 2 hours. We truly and honestly almost had a wreck on the way home. From the time we left the house until we finally got home, it was an eleven hour day.
BUT, I can say with complete and utter honesty, I don't think I have ever been more grateful for the blessings of healthy children then I was today.
Sitting in the pre-op waiting room there were other children who were waiting with so many other needs. Much more severe needs, time consuming needs, emotionally draining needs. Permanent needs.
And this was just one small wing of one hospital in one city in one state in one country on one continent.
What I am trying to point out, in my sleep deprived and not so eloquent way, is that we are so very blessed.
Canaan will probably be in pain tomorrow. He may hurt still the next day. By next week, he will be completely well. By next month, he won't even remember that this ever happened.
Life is so good. I want to always remember to be grateful for every single minute.
