A Day in Pictures

Check in:6:30 am-(rise and shine time:4:15am)
Zak watching to make sure the nurse knew how to do a blood pressure correctly)

All decked out in his hospital gear.

Tyler accompanied Zak throughout the day- he got a name tag too!

Ready for surgery - cap and all. Zak has quite and adverse reaction to the sedative they normally give kids before surgery. We tried him going into the OR fully awake. He did great!

We had a lot of trouble waking up out of the antithetic. They had to sedate him quite a bit to get him to calm down and not hurt himself...

After they admitted him to the hospital and got his vitals done -he finally dozed off... for most of the afternoon.

Zak is modeling the throat ice pack-an ice pack that wraps around your neck

Finding time for a little play. He would play for a few minutes and then lay back down.

Eating....need I say more?...

On his way to the bathroom to get dressed in his 'real' pajamas and head home.

Zak insisted on making his bed before we left. Here is his finished product. He also handed all of the nurses"Christian tickets" (tracts) . He told them it was his gift t0 them for taking such good care of him.

Today has been a bit more of a challenge. Healing always seems to be painful. We are reading an old 'Homer Price' book and eating lots of cold stuff.
Thanks for stopping by.

Poor Zak... I remember when my oldest had her tonsils out. She also had a very hard time coming out of the anesthetic:( I'll be praying for you and your little guy♥

So glad to hear all went well, Martie! I just can't believe how much taller he has gotten!! Still the same adorable face; just older looking. Hope and pray he heals quickly! Love, Heather

He sure is getting big! I'm glad to hear it went well! I know that getting Piper's tonsils out has made a HUGE difference, she hasn't really been sick at all since (she was constantly sick before).
