Finn had surgery for tubes and adenoids today. We left home a little after 6pm in order to be at Children's Hospital by 6:45am. Thankfully, since daycare isn't open that early, Memere and Grandpa Ron stayed over last night and watched Korri all day for us. Neither Jim nor I slept at all last night. We both know it is as routine a procedure as you can get, but regardless, it is still your little baby going through it.
Once we got there, Finn was in a good mood and just wanted to play with toys. The little jammies were super cute.
Surgery was done very quickly (less than 45 minutes) and he had to go into recovery until he started waking up. Then they rolled him into his room, which is where we were waiting.
He was in a very fragile state of mind for the rest of the day...in a great mood one minute and crying the next. We kept him on the meds they gave him and that helped a lot. Memere got him some new Cars2 cars to play with, since he can't run, jump or exert himself for up to two weeks and auntie Becca, uncle Pete and Austin sent him a super cute lovable monkey called Junglie, which he just loved.
Thank you to everybody for thinking of us and saying some prayers. If we've learned nothing through Finn's journey, we've truly learned and understand the power of prayer. Also, thank you to Memere and Grandpa Ron for spending the day with Korri and thank you NeNe for coming over tomorrow. I, unfortunately, have to go back to work tomorrow, so it will be nice knowing NeNe is here for some extra cuddling, loving and spoiling. Here's to a quiet and uneventful evening!
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
