Ann and I were prepared to spend the whole morning waiting, but the surgery was over in about 45 minutes! Wynn and I spent the night at Gillette Children's Hospital - mostly for observation's sake, as she was up and walking the floor by dinnertime (and I had to hustle to keep up with her IV drip and monitor...)
No complications at all with anaesthesia thanks to the short duration of the surgery; we had also briefed the team about how that has been the roughest part of prior operations for her & they adjusted her ventilation tube to irritate her throat less. Seems to have worked.
|Ann got to be the parent to go into the O.R. with Wynn this time to help her fall asleep|
|Bored the next morning - she's on a smoothie diet but for some reason Gillette seems unable to make them. Ann brought one in from Starbucks and Wynn wolfed it down. We got home around lunchtime.|
