My aftermath is fuzzy

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Thomas came out of surgery just fine. His neurosurgeon thinks he got the whole tumor - that's good - and no other little brain parts seem damaged. Scott has first watch while I try to get some sleep tonight.

Can actually barely speak English at the moment, but I wasn't sure my messages to friends were getting throught. Ten pm, and all is well. In a morphine-y way.*

2 thoughts, no, three:

1)Pediatric ICU nurses are from heaven.

2)Thomas's neurosurgeon gives the impression that he does not want us to hug him when he says, "Your son is ok. I got the whole tumor," and we try to respect that. We do.

3) It's outrageous that one has to go into Recovery right after surgery. We're so relieved; we should get to take our baby home for a nice nap and snack before we have to start that part of the journey. ...I wish it worked that way.

I guess I should go take the rest I can. We'll be incommunicado for a few days. Thanks for all your support.

**And thanks, Grandma, for breakfast, and parking, and making a daughter who's a total Trooper.**

*Thomas has the morphine. Not me. Although I was eyeing the valium quite closely...

Give me that doctor's name & I'll hug him for you!

So glad to hear things went as well as they could. As a previous person said, try to rest when you can.

Love & Hugs!

Thomas, Sarah, Scott, Mallorie, Rhonda & Mama Alice, My heart agrees with you, why can't he come home right away? Forget "recovery".... but then my brain says, "Recovery is good, so Thomas can get more hugs".... you are ALL courageous warriors, its true! Trust you get good rest when you can. My love and prayers are with you. I love you dearly - Dalene

Really, really hoping that the post-op MRI is clear.
