Okay, whew!! Surgery is done, that was tough watching him be rolled away with no platelets, no ANC, low red cells, and infections. I will admit I spent most of his surgery crying in the waiting room until Brady called and we talked and he distracted me from all of the crazy worries I was having. Don't worry about the blood, that is actually from a bloody nose. They said he was pretty mad when he woke up, pretty agitated and he was rubbing his nose. They put some medicine in it to stop the bleeding and gave him a little more sleepy juice so he could sleep off the agitation so I am using this little window to do a quick update before he wakes up. The port site is pretty clean and smaller than I expected, although since it was infected they can't close the wound for several weeks to a few months they said so that will entail packing the wound and dressing changes twice a day. Heinous.
