Successful Surgery

Good news this morning...Ian's surgery went great!  He was in the OR for about 3 hours, and was very upset when he woke up.  However, everything went as planned and he is now in the hospital recovering.

Ian's tutor was able to sneak him out of the hospital prior to his surgery to help ease his nerves.  His tutor took him to get some new books for hospital entertainment, and of course a quick bite to eat.  Apparently my boy loves to eat.  Then back to the hospital they went.

The surgery was the next morning, so his tutor came back to the hospital and was with him before the surgery to help keep him company.  After surgery, the tutor said that Ian was upset but that he would be OK.  The tutor plans to go back in a couple of days to visit with Ian again.  Ian is expected to stay in the hospital for another 4 days.  Praying for a speedy recovery!!

Oh and it appears that the orphanage did hire someone to sit with Ian in the hospital.  So thankful he is not completely alone.  VERY happy that his tutor has been so kind as to go above and beyond to visit with Ian.  God has His hand on my little boy for sure :)

So glad to hear things went well and that you have an "insider" to keep you updated & cheer up Ian a little bit. Sent up lots of prayers for both of you. Hope his 4 days in the hospital go by quickly! ~Jackie
