366 Project - Day 271 - "Surgery"
September 27, 2012 - "Surgery"
My son had to have surgery for the first time today. It was to remove a cyst that had wrapped itself around a gland in his throat... and kept getting infected.
He was a real trooper! While my wife and I were both nervous as hell and panicking like crazy - he was excited to be having it done and was calm the whole time! The folks at Yale Children's Hospital were amazing... and the surgery was a success.
His first words upon waking were "How long was I out?". Then he asked if he had had his surgery yet or not. It wasn't long before he was asking for a cheeseburger!
That's my boy!
