He's done!!!

We brought Brayden to the surgery center this morning at 8:00. His surgery was scheduled for 9:15. At 8:45 they took him back to pre-op holding. He was very nervous. He asked if they could put his IV in after he was asleep. Of course he is too old for that so the nurse said no. He then got a shot of versed. He started crying after that. He cried very hard until they took him for the surgery. After about an hour and 15 minutes, the doctor came out to talk to us. He was successful in finding the cyst and removing it. He said his tonsils were enormous. He also said that he barely had any adenoid tissue. All in all it was a huge success. We got to see him after about an hour. He does have a JP drain coming out of his neck. He will have it a day or two. We are staying overnight in the surgery center in case Bray has any breathing difficulty.

I want to tell you how this time has blessed me so much. Brayden continually asked for us to pray over him. Each time my heart was full of pride because he loves our Father in heaven so much. He called Carri and asked her to pray with him a couple of times. How sweet he is.
