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!

I know what it's like ... the sense of relief when it's all over successfully. I remember doing a lot of praying when my daughter was in for surgery about 10 years ago.. so glad it went well for you all.
