Pre-Op...check!

Yeah! We are back from Dylan's pre-op appointment! It's been a long day, but Dylan did very well. He was such a brave little guy.

To make a long day short, here is a recap from the sweet boy himself:

I had a sedated echocardiogram, an EKG, and lots of x-rays. I then had some moments of discomfort while the nurses struggled unsuccessfully to find veins in both of my arms for the blood draw.

This is how I felt after all of that poking and prodding:



After the bust of a blood draw, I took a trip to the PICU with my Momma and Daddy to have a nurse take bood from a vein in my head. That wasn't too much fun.

My Momma and Daddy spent alot of time talking to doctors, cardiologists and anesthesiologists.

After getting stuck for a little while in the parking garage elevator, we finally got to drive home! This is me on the drive home from the hospital. Whew, I'm exhausted!

I'd been thinking of you too Dylan. I'm glad it all went ok. I'm sorry you had to get stuck with needles. Sydney never liked that much either when she had to get foot sticks...

but you're a brave little man. Hang in there and you'll be feeling good as new :)

What a rough day! Been thinking of all of you . . . He's going to do so well with surgery. Hugs.

So glad it went ok. Blood draws are awful! Kailey has hypothyroidism so we have to go for draws to check her levels and it never gets easier. We actually need to take her tomorrow and I have been dreading it. It's worse when they know what it going on. You guys are in my thoughts and I can't wait to hear that all this "surgery stuff" is a distant memory for you.
