A quick post before I hit the hay...we are home, and Nathan is doing well. He has been in some pain throughout the afternoon/evening, but the surgeon prescribed some tylenol with codeine for him that is helping quite a bit. The surgery went well. They took a 2cm cube of muscle from his left thigh, a sliver of skin from that same area, and some blood, urine and spinal fluid for other labs. Thankfully, all of this was done after he had been "put under".
Nathan managed to pull out his own IV as he was coming out of anesthesia...that's my crazy boy. He was groggy and sleepy, but did very well afterwards. He had a few issues with high heart rate, but that is just the norm for him, and he is running a low fever this evening, but it is coming down with medication. All in all, he has done wonderfully.
Scottish Rite is a wonderful hospital, and I was highly impressed with everything! Every single appt all week was exactly on time, and we were kept informed through every little step. This definitely made the week a lot less stressful than we had set it up in our minds. I am so thankful for this. And I can not say enough good things about Scottish Rite...you Atlantans are blessed with a wonderful hospital and staff there.
I'll update more tomorrow with some pictures. Right now, I am off to give one last kiss to my sleeping girls and boy and slide into my own bed. It's good to be home. The Lord has been merciful to us.
