He was given a little gown to wear and he looked SO cute in it. They also gave him a little stuffed animal, which I thought was really sweet.
They also had a wagon we could pull up and down the small hallway to keep him distracted (since he couldn’t eat before the surgery). He loved it.
We filmed a little video right before they took Elias back. He is a little drugged, but still showed the camera that he is one and blew a few kisses. I love my child.
The doctor said there was A LOT of fluid in his ears and that he should be feeling much better. I hated that the fluid was there, but it did make me feel like we made the right decision. Does that make sense?
Elias was REALLY upset after the surgery – not because he was in pain – but because he was disoriented and hungry. We gave him a bottle and were able to get him calmed down in the car. He slept well when he got home and was walking along the couch like a champ by the afternoon.
Last night was his first time having ear plugs in for his bath. He didn’t seem to care at all. Didn’t try pulling them out or anything.
Thanks for all your kind words and prayers.
