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
