The Surgery

December 23, 2010
















Heading into OR

       
Recovery Room  


















Eliah's surgery went well.  The same doctor that did his original port was the one to put this in place.  He said that Eliah's tissue looked really good, and he was able to put a new one in the same side.  The doctor said that the port is a little larger and should be able to grow with Eliah a little better.  But I'm sure it will take some getting used to.

Eliah was anxious and upset before going in.  He didn't sleep all night due to the doctors and nurses entering the room, and numerous needle sticks to check clotting factor levels.  The good news is, Eliah's levels remained high and acted no different than anyone else having surgery.

He is resting calmly now with Morphine, and has even eaten a little bit.  He seems to be okay for the time being.  I will update more as he recovers.  Thank you so much for the thoughts and prayers.  We ALL appreciate it.
