Levi wasn't a bit nervous. They were about an hour late rolling him into surgery. We had plenty of distractions. They took and he was totally cool about it. It took less than a half hour. The surgeon was very impressed at how mature Levi is. I guess Levi was telling him that he has two sisters and a brother, which the surgeon thought were real. We started to laugh and told him that it had been a while since we last heard of the baby sisters. We told him that they were imaginary and that the baby sisters drive a yellow jeep and travel all over the world. The baby brother makes occasional guest appearances. We got called back to the recovery area. He was still out and then all of a sudden he was wide awake and announced that he woke right away. He watched a little Arthur and had some apple juice. He politely declined any crackers. The nurses were impressed at how polite he was. All was well until we looked at the incision area. He goes there is a cut and started to cry. He then got scared to put undies and pants on. He liked the wheel chair ride. He is a little tentative to go potty but that should get better. We didn't get home until about 5 p.m. we were all starved since none of us had eaten since 9 p.m. the night prior.

I'm glad it went so well for all of you. Is he back to school today, or does he need some time to recover?

That's really cute about his baby sisters and brother. What a character!

He went to school. He wanted me to take him instead of DH. I talked with his teacher about everything. Fortunately, this isn't a PE day. She asked about recess and I told her that he would self-regulate. Today, he is walking like he was horseback riding all day yesterday, poor guy. It is a bit of drama to put a little neosporine on it but that should get better. Hopefully, he will get back in the pool by Friday as there are no stitches.

Yeah, the baby sisters, who have jobs, drives, live in various places, he has had them since about 3. We don't hear much about them these days.

WOW! I always see early triumphs like this as an indication of how they will handle tough situations when they are older (like my daughter rocking the eye patch)

It sounds like he has a great sense of self and bravery!

GO LEVI!

Glad everything went smoothly and Levi did so great!

Be sure to ask his teacher about his description of his surgery to her and his friends- I'm sure it is hilarious!

And I hope your other kids do as well as Levi if they have to get surgery!
