It's just fillings...

Miles had his day surgery today to get his fillings. He got 5 fillings in 4 teeth. He did well. We had CV anesthesia, Dr. Campos, he was great. We got there at about 7 am. They took him back to get his vitals and talk to the NP and we played for a while then took him to surgery at right about 9 am. The whole thing took about 45 minutes but we left to go home at about Noon. He took a while to wake up and then to convince us that his pulse ox was okay. It wanted to stay around 93% but when we got there intially it was at 97-98%. When we left it had been 95% for a few seconds. Anyway, he is asleep, where I will be momentarily. We will just watch him closely today and he should be back to normal by tomorrow.

When we walked down that hallway in day surgery where you hand them over, like we have done so many times now, I cried a little. Miles gripped Dr. Campos, started to cry and covered his eyes. My husband and I both got a little choked up. Then said, Why does everything have to be so tramatic? It's just fillings! But such is life with a CHD kid :) I wouldn't trade him for anything!

Off to nap time! ~Becky

GOOD GOOD GOOD! If I remember later and not too late I will give you a call. Very Glad that Miles did well, I love that little bugger.

I'm sure that brings back emotions from the more serious surgery(ies), holding Evan down for shots or x-rays always brings those feelings back for me. Glad everything went okay!

I bet if you were willing to trade him I could name several people that would give you an offer :) Glad everything went okay!

Glad it went ok. We have had such feelings and have had to remind ourselves that our boy is fine now. But I still watch him breathe while he is sleeping sometimes and it has been over a year since surgery.
