Our family cannot thank you enough for your prayers,
positive thoughts & kindness you've sent our way!

He had a rough start prior to surgery. poor thing!
--the first IV blew, resulting in a 2nd IV -- of course;
which made him tense up (he was so nervous!)
pray to the plastic trash can & turn pretty pale.

--his surgery was delayed for about an hour.
--he got the giggle juice, fell asleep, they took him back to
give him the "knock out completely" good stuff....

--about 45-50 minutes later -- doc came out and told us he did GREAT!
(she said she got all of the fibroid and sent it to pathology and in 3 weeks
when we return for his follow up,she'd have the results ... which is most likely, benign)

a little bit longer and we were able to see him in recovery
and get him awake enough to go home.

--he's been home for a while now and "he's feeling ok" -- he says.
(pain meds? probably, LOL!)
GREAT news...he's healthy, he's home, he's healing
(his stitches are dissolvable should be gone within 3 weeks)
and he's even eating me out of chicken noodle soup! (lol)

{That makes this mom's so happy}
because I know the main reason is -- your prayers & positive thoughts.
I know this was a MINOR procedure and I KNEW he was going to be "ok" but
I'm sure every mom feels this way....(dad's too!) this....
"oh please let it remain a minor thing" --
"please let the doctor's hands be steady",
"please let him remain calm and not have a reaction to anything..."
(he's got a very high drug allergy to a certain drug and anything containing this drug)

but my fears were pushed aside as he says to me....
"is it over? can we go home? wheelchair? am I dreaming?"
over and over and over....
(God Bless that kid!)

So we'd all like to thank you --
& we love you
