And he’s OK

Better than OK actually.  Owen has already eaten 4 eggs (carefully chopped and cooled), 2 bowls of cereal (Rice Krispies soaked in milk), ice cream, rice stew and a banana.   He just won’t do the clear liquid diet so the docs said as long as the food is soft and he’s eating something – we’re OK.  Actually, why don’t I back up?

It’s been a very long two days so forgive me if I go astray…But when I woke up this morning could of sworn it was judgment day.  Whoa!  See what I mean?  I’m slightly delirious from lack of sleep.  In fact….You know what.  I’ve got to go to bed.  I’m suspending this mid – post and getting some well needed rest.  I’ll post tomorrow on his surgery.  You’ll thank me.  I’ll be much more coherent.

For those who have sent their well wishes THANK YOU!!! Owen did great and is recovering very well from his tonsil, adenoid and ear tube surgery!  I will at least give you pictures for now!

 

We took Owen to the Splash Pad to get a final run in before surgery and a summer full of earplugs.

BEFORE SURGERY

He was as happy as a little clam going into surgery.  Below are some of my favorite pictures.  Click into the album for more!

AFTER SURGERY

RECOVERING AT HOME

Owen was ecstatic to get out of the hospital!  And when I came home from picking up his prescriptions with 6 rented videos from the library, I’ll really got the feeling that he was thinking the whole thing was worth it if for nothing else but those videos.

I'm so happy to know that Owen did so great! I'm sure you feel so relieved! What an awesome kid. Seamus will be getting his tonsils out in a few months and I am quite nervous, but it's so wonderful to see how amazing Owen did.

Owen did fantastic from the pictures! You will notice a difference in a few weeks. We did with Aidan when he had the T & A done in January. His tonsils were sized down and not completely removed. Kids are so resilliant.

I am so happy Owen flew though with flying colors! Love his pictures-especially the magical escaping toddler! love it! I am so happy it's one less thing on your mind to worry about. Just get some rest!Hugs!

I'm happy to hear Owen is doing well. The pictures were great. The after surgery pics just want to pick him up and give him hugs and kisses. Poor guy. Hope he's all better soon.

I'm so glad Owen came thru with flying colors! I love the pics. Could he be any cuter in that hospital gown? I think not!

Glad to hear that Owen is done with the surgery and is on his way toward recovery! His pictures were so cute and sweet. With one less thing to worry about I hope you can start to get some rest.

Lisa said...

WOW!! Looks like he's going great. They kept telling us it'd take 2 weeks for the tonsils. So, that makes me feel good. Liz has her tonsils, adnoids (and maybe tubes) in July.

I'm so happy to hear that Owen did so well! He is absolutely adorable in all of the pictures! I love the one of him climbing over the crib rail, and he is just the cutie in that hospital gown! I hope you have some relief from all of the stress on your plate!

Caden and Mommy said...

I'm so glad Owen's surgery went well. After Caden's tonsillectomy I am fearful of those things! The pictures are so adorable! I'm happy George was there to take good care of Owen :0)

Lisa said...

Everything OK with you? Haven't heard anything in awhile! I hope you've just been crazy busy and perhaps had an annoying computer like I did. Hope to see an update soon!

Monica Rafie said...

The falling into the crib shot is just adorable . . .well they all are, actually. Yay Owen. Glad that's over for now for your sake, Cat.

Amy Bayliss said...

Oh my gosh! I love the pics -especially the one of him going over the rail! He is such a sweetie! I'm glad everything went well.

My Gevan has never had a surgery but we just found out at the LPA conference that he will likely have to have one soon. He is 13 now and I'll still probably cry like a baby. ;)
