Surgery update

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Manu's surgery went well with no complications. He was in surgery for about 3 hours, and released shortly afterward. He was very hungry after the procedure, and at a small box of cheerios, 2 small boxes of raisins, and a few handfuls of goldfish, all that on the way home! We had a rough night last night, as he was inconsolable and awoke 3-4 times throughout the night screaming. We called the hospital help line, and the doctor on call upped his dose of Tylenol and Advil. This morning he is a completely new baby, happy and energetic, with no signs of surgical pain. Of course, now mommy and daddy are fussy from lack of sleep! We have a follow-up appointment in 6 weeks, but all signs are that everything is going to be fine. Thanks to everyone who called or wrote to us during this time. It was very stressful for us to have our little boy endure such an ordeal. We're all glad it's over!


  1. I'm glad my little buddy is doing so good. Hope to see you all soon.

  2. Thank heaven you're done with surgery! One of my sons had an eye surgery when he was 10 months old, and it just breaks your heart to see them confused and in pain. It sounds like he bounced back really quickly -- but I bet that painful night felt really long for all of you!
    Keep mending,

  3. Relieved for you guys that all went well. Hope everyone gets great rest tonight.

  4. Glad to hear thing went well. We think of you often and talk about you lots. Funny how much there is in common when you've never met. :)
    Someday we'll have to get together. Maybe next summer when we will be in Nashville? :)
