Cade's Surgery

Cade went into the hospital today for surgery. He was to have his adenoids removed and maybe his tonsils. He was doing pretty good before.  Here he is getting ready to leave. Cade was fine, but mom was a little nervous.

The pre-surgery room was filled with toys and other children waiting for their turn. Sam put him in a little wagon and pushed him back and forth. Anytime Sam would stop, Cade would let him know about it. 

Doesn't he look absolutely adorable in his little scrubs???

Mom and Cade having a playful moment before they take him in.

The doctor was going to wait until Cade was under before making a final decision about the tonsils. About 20 minutes into the surgery, Katy got a call. Cade's tonsils absolutely had to come out. We were told his tonsils were almost the size of a walnut each. 

He's been drinking apple juice and Grandpa got him some gummi worms. Unfortunately, he's not been holding anything down. The nurse brought him something that will help with the nausea. I hope he gets some sleep soon.

I forgot to ask today how Cade is doing? How is he? I thought about him on Friday, and Katie. It's super hard for the mama too! Hope he feels better soon. And, how did the meeting with KOTM go?

What a sweet little guy. It would be so hard to leave your little one in the hands of physicians and not get to be there. I'm glad everything went well.
