THANK YOU for your prayers for Shayden's surgery!
It went as well as it could have possibly gone!
|playing the waiting-game isn't hard when you've got the TV to distract you|
|the inside of the hand before surgery|
|in the play-room of the hospital|
|in the hospital-gown now - - - getting closer|
Everything was very peaceful and smooth.
|happy as can be|
|getting rolled down to the operating theater - "Where are they taking me?"|
|just minutes to go - Dad looking funny (ready to go in with him until he's "out", which was only 10 seconds, as he was very relaxed and didn't fight the gas)|
Shayden was happy and not at all anxious during the whole time!
No tears - even after he woke up!
|just waking up|
|barely conscious and right away blowing to get the wheel moving|
|lots of books and his favourite DVD "Chip and Dale" kept him distracted during recovery|
What a champ our little guy is - so brave!
And he hasn't even complained about his cast yet
Even though he can barely do anything by himself anymore now.
We even have to feed him
and give him drinks.
So far - so good!
Now he'll be in the cast for 4 weeks...
THANKS AGAIN, if you've prayed!
We DEFINITELY felt "carried" by God's wonderful PEACE and GRACE!!!
