One amazing kid


Little guy was admitted this morning for his surgery tomorrow. We met with surgery a few times and anesthesia and have everything squared away for tomorrow. It has truly been smooth sailing all day, and the little guy put in a really long nap and has remained in the flat on his back position the whole time. After being going and going like crazy the past couple of weeks, today seemed to be exactly what he needed. He seemed to really enjoy being able to chose whatever movie he wanted to watch without having to share the choice with his sisters. Speaking of them, the whole clan came to visit for a bit tonight. Let's just say that two energetic girls in a small hospital room where there are multiple lines coming off their brother is not a good combination. But, Nate seemed to enjoy having them here for a short visit. Saying goodbye to them all tonight was pretty tough for the little guy.
Grammie read a couple of books to settle everyone down. She and Papa are taking care of the girls this week so Jay can be up here and at work. And my parents are coming in next week, so our kids will surely be spoiled absolutely rotten at the end of their grandparent adventures this summer. They won't know what to do when everyone leaves...and neither will we. Surgery is set for around 10:00 tomorrow. Post-op, Nathan will be moved up to the PICU for closer monitoring. They like to keep a pretty close eye on the little guy here, and I truly appreciate that. He is taking everything in stride in his general laid-back attitude. As long as he has Tebow and his paci, he can go through anything. He sure does have an excellent attitude about it all. I love this kiddo.
