Doing Good...

Nathan did great this morning! Everything went as planned with his scope and g-tube placement. He is such a trooper! They brought him to his room in a giant adult bed, his eyes were wide open and looking around as he rolled in to his room. :o) It was just too cute, and I'm sorry I didn't get any pics of it.

Here he is in his hospital crib:

Right afterwards he got pretty uncomfortable with pain. He started arching his back and drawing his legs up close to his tummy.  It hurts so much to see your child in pain, especially when you can't tell them what's going on in a way they will understand. The nurse gave him some morphine and he settled in what seem like an hour, but was really only 15 minutes or so. I wished I could trade places with him at that moment.

We are so thankful things went smoothly and now we look forward to him healing and no longer hurting. I hear from other moms that day 2 is so much better than the first, so I am looking forward to tomorrow.
