It took 30 minutes to drive there, 45 minutes of waiting and only about 20 seconds of the doctor looking, for him to proclaim "Yeah, those are HUGE! See my nurse and we will schedule surgery".
Yesterday was the day of his surgery. On the days leading up to it I kept explaining the procedure to him and how he would probably feel afterwards. I also recorded his voice a lot. We love, LOVE his voice. It's deep and throaty and did I mention deep? I have been warned it is likely his voice won't be the same so at least we will have videos of his deep voice.
This procedure happens all the time and is very common and that's what I kept telling myself, but I couldn't help but get nervous. It's never fun seeing your Littles be in pain.
After checking in we were taken back and put in a room with toys and Sesame Street on TV. The nurses took to Jonas fast...I think at one point there were 5 in the room talking to him and playing with him. He'd play for a bit and then come running to me and ask me to hold him.
They took him back in a wagon and as he turned the corner I think it hit him that I wasn't going with him and he yelled out a long wailing "Mooooooooooooooom". Yeah...that part wasn't my favorite.
The surgery was fast and went well. He woke up before I came into recovery. I didn't need the nurses to tell me where he was...I just needed to follow the angry screams.
