Smooth Sailing

The surgical staff was correct - everything went very smoothly today. Sara even stopped by for a visit as we were going through the pre-op process. Dante was his typical stubborn self, but who wouldn't be on no food or drink and woken up early! He doesn't come down off of anesthesia very well, but made the nurses giggle when they said his name and he replied, very sternly, "I'm not Dante. I'm Buzz Lightyear."

We were home by 1 and Dante has had no pain medications since leaving. (They told us he would probably need some as soon as we got home.) Tomorrow might be a different story, but we're much relieved that the surgery is over. He has 5 days of no bath, which he's pleased about, and 10 days of light activity.

As long as Carina is careful, we shouldn't need to return to the hospital until December. Woo Hoo!


  • What a milestone...A sigh of relief...and a blessing all tied into one momentous occasion. Keep on posting. We love hearing about all of you!!
