New hardware in, old hardware out

Malachi has surgery today in Madison WI. We drove up last night and stayed in the Ronald McDonald house so we could be close to the hospital the following morning. We were able to enjoy our evening last night and all three of us got a good nights rest. This morning we were able to get up, shower, eat breakfast and play before we had to head over to the hospital. Malachi's surgery was scheduled for 1:55pm. They took him back right on time. They knew going in the he needed new tubes and his adenoids taken out. His ENT also wanted to do a more detailed look in his mouth while he was asleep to determine if he needed his tonsils out. About 40 mins after they took him back we were told he was done and that they didnt take his tonsils out because they were not enlarged. Recovery was a little hard, I could tell he was in lots of pain but with a little dose of morphine he relaxed enough to eat. After he got some food in his tummy he was better. About 2 hours later we were discharged! Woo hoo no over night hospital stays, which makes me one very happy mamma! So we are now home and Malachi is sleeping (restlessly) in his own bed. And I am on my knees thanking God for a successful and uneventful surgery!!
