Ahhhhhhhh, the recovery room

Trey had a successful and uneventful tube surgery this morning with Dr. Moxham. Tubes were put in and a bunch of thick fluid was drained out. We were in and out of the hospital in under two hours and they didn’t even need to give Trey a General Anesthetic, just a little gas, since the procedure was so short (approx. 10 minutes). The only frustrating part was the Recovery Room. Trey has now been put under 3 times: first was an adenoidectomy and tube surgery, then an MRI, and today, a tube surgery. The first time, Trey woke up alone in the Recovery Room and by the time I got to him, he was so hysterical it took 20 minutes, with the help of a high dose of Morphine, to calm him down. After that we began to request being in the Recovery Room when he woke up, and although everyone we have talked to said they’d “do everything they could,” we have yet to be in the Recovery Room when Trey woke up. I’m not sure yet what we’ve got to do to make this happen…When it comes down to it though, we’re just happy to be home, have the procedure done, and be one step closer to making decisions about transplant.
