Surgery success!

Thank you so much for praying for Rob!  His surgery was a success this morning!  He went in at about 10:30am and got out of surgery right at noon.  I had to wait until 1pm before they would let me back into the recovery room because he took a little while to come out of the anesthesia.

The doctor said that he had to really dig his tonsils out (ouch!)...but that everything went just perfectly.

When I went back to the recovery room he looked so much better than I was expecting, and was already beginning to eat a popsicle, although still pretty groggy and tired, and of course he was in pain! 

We have lots of meds to hopefully keep his pain under control...that was the biggest thing they told us:  to stay on top of the pain meds and not miss a dose.....and also to stay hydrated! 

Anyway, thank you soooo very much for all the prayers!  I think that is why he did so well!

Fabulous! Even minor surgeries are so nerve-wracking. So glad everything turned out OK!

Wishig him a speedy recovery! I'm so glad he did well! The doc is right, stay on top of those pain meds! I had a similar type of surgery awhile back and I though I could handle it without much of the pain pill...trust me, it's not worth it! :)
