Update #2- Thursday

Well- there was really no improvement, so they took T back for surgery at 3:00 pm today. It went great according to our much beloved CI doctor. They took out lots of infection, and he looked really relieved that they did the surgery. He was wavering for so long on whether it was riskier to do it, vs. not do it, but in the end he said it was definitely the right decision. So, now my poor baby has on the same head-wrap that he had on post-CI, and he has a drainage tube under all the bandages. They told me he should feel loads better tomorrow, and by Saturday we can (hopefully) head home. I had to leave him w/ Rob (very much appreciated hubby), which should have been hard, but he was sooooo asleep, I think he won't even know I'm not there- Plus the other three kids have been such troopers, they need some mom time.

More tomorrow....

*sigh* Poor kiddo! I'm glad it's over, though...hope that the surgery and antibiotics do the trick and he's back to himself in no time!
Get you some rest, girl...take care of YOU, too!! (HUGS)
