Surgery is on for tomorrow

Well we went to the Pulmonary doctor today and she was going to have the final say about his surgery tomorrow. Dr E was very concerned with Carson having two surgeries 25 days apart. She went over his history and the lab work came back from scoping his lungs and I'm happy to report that it came back just fine. Then we discussed him being on Advair for the last couple of months. It is a small improvement that he has gone from having flare ups 5+ times a week to about 2-3 times. We are going to leave all alone with his medicine and report back to her in Feb. If he hasn't slowed down on flare ups by then, she will probably go back and do a different type of scope. So keep your goods thoughts and prayers coming that the Advair is going to work. So after that, we discussed Carson's night terrors. How lucky is that ? Our pulmonary doctor is actually in charge of sleep studies? So she gave me a few ideas to help Carson and she said if we don't have any improvement in about 3 weeks, call the office and they will prescribe him something temporary until we come back in this Feb. So after all of that, she said she would allow him to have surgery but she would come check on him on rounds Wed morning and she would let Dr Singhal know that she will not release him until she has seen him as well. She is kind of the Chief in all of this. But I'm glad because I think she truly loves Carson.

So the plans tomorrow??? Well we got bumped back again so now it will be at 2:50. We go to Same Day Surgery and check in at 1:30. I hope they are running on time this time. He does have a 10-20% of ending up in ICU but again, with all of your happy thoughts and prayers, he will be just fine. We will be giving him a medicine orally called Versed. This is a medicine that will calm him down so much that he won't even realize we are passing him off for surgery. I just feel with all the trauma from last time and the closeness of the two surgeries, this will be for the best.

So, please say a prayer for Carson and let us get home soon so Mommy can get us ready for turkey day.

UGH! Surgery! Thats the worst with kids. I think it is often as painful on the parents as the child. Good luck to you both! I'm sure things will go great and he will be up and going again in no time! :)
