We had to be at the hospital at 12:15. Nate wasn't taken back for his surgery until 3:15. It was such a long afternoon. H obviously had no idea the peach robe and pants meant. This is one of the few pictures that he is actually smiling his smile and it happens in the pre-op room!
Nate had 3 surgeries. The ENT came out and said the surgery was smooth. The urologist was also happy with his part of the surgery. It took the cleft specialist about 2 more hours to come out. We were so happy when he said that Nate had just an average cleft. Everything worked the way it is supposed to. We were gald to be average.
Nate spent 2 nights and got to come home Thursday morning. Had he not had the fever, he may have been able to come home Wednesday night. The doctors finally released him and Kevin raced out of there just in case they changed their minds.
I was glad to have the entire family back under one roof.
