For this surgery my mom and I took Brayden to Chicago. Wednesday we got to Chicago and went to Dr. Bauer's office at 2:00 for a pre-surgery appointment with Dr. Bauer. He wanted to look over Brayden and get a game plan for surgery the following day.
Once we left his office, we headed downtown and checked in to our new home for the next few days, the Ronald Mcdonald house. Brayden was super excited to be going back, he loves all the fun things he gets to do while he stays at the RMH.
The first night we got to hang out with our nevus friend, Brooklyn and her mommy Merilee. We all went out for dinner at Eataly and afterwards we came back at the kids decorated huge pumpkins. I love all the fun things they put together for the kids to do at the RMH.
They even gave us these cool hats at the RMH....Brooklyn and I
4 nevus buddies playing together at RMH. Jace on the far left from Florida, Brayden, Brooklyn from Montana and Michael from Russia. Amazing how people from all over the world come to Dr. Bauer.
Out for dinner at Eataly
Having his favorite after surgery, PIZZA and chocolate milk!
After Brayden enjoyed his pizza, he watched 3 movies and slept through the night! The next morning we were off to Dr. Bauer's office for a dressing change. This was the happiest Brayden's ever been at a dressing change, so we had to get a picture with our favorite nurse, Mim! She is such an amazing nurse and we just love her!
These are some of the spots Dr. Dickie cut out, we will see how they heal over the next 3 weeks
Dr. Bauer cleaned up some areas on his butt, so far Brayden is doing good with this and doesn't seem to bother him
