Here is a photo of him in the waiting room before the versed (pre-med that makes you loopy).
Just before the versed....
15 minutes after the versed - totally loopy!
20 minutes after the versed. Look at the look on his face!
He is so much more aware of what is going on now, we chose to give him the pre-med. It did help, although when they wheeled him off he kept asking for us and it was like daggers in our heart. He did well during surgery, although his pulse went up over 200 at one point and they were concerned. Apparently, they called in a specialist and said it was 'normal' and some children have this issue during anesthesia. Still very alarming for us, and we need to learn more about it.
For now, he is resting in bed. Today he watched some Mickey Mouse on TV and just hung out. Something tells me, tomorrow he will be up to his old self.
