Moses’ surgery went fine, they operated around 8 am today. The defect in his abdomen was very large, so they are keeping him longer than we expected though. We were told that the surgery would take about 30 minutes, and then he would need to recover for another 30 before coming home. We were also told that he wouldn’t be in much pain afterward and we would just need to give him tylenol. Well, he is in a lot of pain. A local anesthetic was injected at the incision site and he has been given two doses of morphine today, and he is still hurting to the point that he breaks out in a sweat if he moves. At one point he wanted Jonny to help him roll onto his side, but it hurt too much. We just weren’t expecting this amount of pain. Please pray that the pain lessens and that we don’t experience a setback with Moses because of the surgery. He has been doing so incredibly well. I am not sure that we prepared him for the surgery well enough. I hope that we haven’t lost his trust. Maybe we should have waited longer to have this done. I don’t know. It’s is very hard knowing that he is in pain. Moses really wants to come home; Jonny says he keeps asking to. I am waiting to hear if they will release him today or if they are going to keep him overnight. If they do of course Jonny will stay there with him.
