Brayden's Journey

Night of surgery

Yesterday and last night Brayden slept on his back the whole time and it didn't seem to bother him.  I was suprised since that was where he just had surgery. It was good that it didn't seem to bother him. He slept from 11:30 last night until 5 am, then I heard him crying alittle, so the nurse came in to give him pain meds.  After that he went back to sleep until 7:30 when Dr. Bauer's nurse came in to do Brayden's 1st dressing change. Which he did not like this, he cried so hard.  We had to sit him up and I tried to distract him while Grandma watched what the nurse was doing, but Brayden didn't seem to stop crying.

After the nurse did the dressing change and left, we gave him baby food for the 1st time and he watched his favorite, Mickey Mouse Club on tv and he was a happy little guy :)

This morning, his nevus buddy Teddy who is 2 and his parents came in our room to say hello.  Was nice to talk to them for awhile and see them. 

Now we are getting ready to leave the hospital, hopefully as the day goes by, Brayden will be in less and less pain.  He is on 2 pain meds and we will go to the pharmacy to pick those up when we leave the hospital.  Then the rest of the day we might do some shopping if Brayden is feeling ok.

At 3:00 today, we will go to Dr. Bauer's office for a visit, they want to make sure Brayden is doing ok before we drive the 7 hrs back to Iowa tomorrow. 

Thank you everyone for your support ! Brayden is a tough little boy and I am very proud of him and how strong he is being right now.
