Sean’s surgery

Tag: SeanAndrewEmily @ 5:00 pm

Sean had surgery to probe and irrigate his blocked tear duct this morning at Cincinnati Children’s. It went really well, and Sean is doing wonderfully. The hospital staff were great and Sean ‘went out’ and woke up easily. We were in the waiting room for less than 10 minutes! When we got back to the recovery room, Sean sat up, downed 8oz of apple juice, then asked for his book and began to read! He’s so funny! It was impressive; I was expecting him to be very groggy and cranky, but he was cheerful and comical!

His eye looks good; looks like it’s starting to drain tears like it should. We have to give him eye drops 3x day for a week, which I’m sure he’ll hate! Thanks for the thoughts and prayers; it was a simple / fast procedure, but still worrisome 🙂

Here are some pictures of him in his little hospital gown:

    I am so glad he did well.
    At this age every procedure is stressfull on Mom and Dad more than baby.
    You just want them to be ok and the usually are.
    My prayers have been with all three of you.
    Love Brenda
