The nurse gave him some "happy juice" before going into the operating room. I was so glad because I was anticipating that Liam would throw a fit when we had to leave him. Liam did great though and was very relaxed (thanks to the great juice!) through the whole thing. He was playing in the room we were waiting in, and when the surgeon came in he quickly told me we needed to hold Liam as the drugs would be taking affect quickly. Duh Mom!
The Dr. marked the surgical site, then gave Liam the permanent marker as a souvenir. Ben drew thumb faces on Liam and him. I think we should send Liam to play at the Dr's house with his new marker!
They wheeled Liam to the operating room in a little wagon. He climbed in and got comfy.
After surgery just before he woke up. The nurse told us they put bubblegum smell in the mask to entice the kids to cooperate.
The day after. I planned to stay home with Liam while Ben and the older kids went to our town's Independence Day Parade, but when Liam woke up he started crying saying "I want to be in the parade with Daddy." So, we let him go. He was heavily medicated still and just sat on Ben's lap the whole time. What a trooper!
