Well we just got back from the hospital. He's doing very well. I'm so happy! Poor little thing. I was the last one in to go and see him. Poor baby. He was sleeping when I got in. He was hooked up to everything, but the only thing that seemed to bother him was when they did the blood pressure thingy. He didn't particularly care for that part. I put my hand on his head and pet his cheek. He seemed to like it cause when I took my hand away he started whimpering. The whimpering was less when I put my hand back on, but he kept at it for a while. Poor little guy. He looked like he was hurting. :( :( Then I gave him a kiss and he smiled, so I felt better for him. I gave him another kiss and he smiled bigger. Then I noticed that the oxygen mask was pushing on his eyes and nose kinda hard, and not covering his chin, so I adjusted it and he seemed a lot happier. It was pressing on his eyes, and I could see how that would be very uncomfortable. Then the nurse played some music for him and he calmed down a lot. After turning down the lights for him he just feel right asleep. Little angel. :)
He had the best surgeon too. Big black guy with a really calm, soft, deep voice. He looked like a great big teddy bear! :) He smiled too. :)
Thank you for your prayers. Isaiah will be in hospital for 3-5 days, so please continue to pray for him as he recovers. I'll send updates if anything changes, but he's doing just fine for now. Thank you all so much. :)
We're here now. I'm using the hospital computer. I will post updates
every once and a while. We're updated every two minutes on what times
everything is happening with a big sceen here, and it's very calming.
Auntie seems to be one of the least nervous. Everything seems to be
going well. He was aparently angry for a bit because he wasn't being
fed, but then calmed down when uncle (his daddy) held him. They had to
draw blood again, which he didn't like, but it was over quickly and he
soon stopped crying. They took him into the surgery room at 1:10. It's
2:07 now, and he's still in there. Thank you all so much for praying
with me at 2:00. We all did, and there's a woman here from Auntie's
church who came to support them too. It's very encouraging. Grandma is
staying calm, and it's a very calm envirnment with cool colors used in
decoration, with some warm colors to brighten it up. It's all very
calm. No one is crying, and it's all good.
IMEDIATE UPDATE: Isaiah JUST started the actual surgery. They were
just doing pre stuff before. It's 2:08. Please continue to pray. Thank
you so much!
