Before surgery watching TV in his little hospital gown~
Today my special little guy had surgery. He had an abdominal hernia repaired plus had to have one of his testicles pulled down. He did so well and is home now, a little drugged-up still, but pretty much his cuddly self. This is his 3rd hospital admission since birth. I know that's probably not much for a DS child, but it does seem like a lot compared to my other children. He is always so good and such a hit. The nurses all wanted to keep or adopt him : ) He loved the doctors too and had no stranger anxiety. He's so friendly and peaceful. He even gave his therapeutic hugs to the nurses.
Anyway, I'm so glad this surgery is done before the baby is born and we really don't for see him having any other hospital visits in the near future. He has great ears and eyes. Now, if we could just get him walking! But I'm being patient and am so glad he is talking and signing more. I'm kind of sad realizing he won't be my "baby" for too much longer.
