surgery is done!

Vin had his orchiopexy (the fellas got brought down) sugery today.

This kid is such a trooper...

We were up and out the door at 5:30 am and he was all smiles and giggles!

Until he started to figure out what was going on!

Then he decided that it really wasn't so bad...

Getting wheeled away...

I know this was a pretty common surgery with minimal implications, but still I had to worry!

After 7 pokes, they finally got the i.v. in (I am glad they did the i.v. after he was put out!).

The surgery took a lot longer than I expected about 1 1/2 hours for each side.

The doctor repaired two hernias as well.
I actually enjoyed the quiet time and took a little nap and got caught up on a few soaps.

The best part of the day was all of the snuggles Vinny had waiting for me when he came out of surgery!

I am so thankful that everything went well and he is at home sleeping it all off!

Hopefully the "boys" won't be to sore tomorrow!


  1. Awww! I hope he isn't too sore too. Use them pain meds!

    Get well soon Vinny!!!

  2. Staci, you amaze me and some time we need to get together for my kids to experience you and all your boys.

  3. I HATE the "wheel away" and I LOVE the post surgery snuggles. That's great that he's able to be home today!
    Glad you guys have another thing off the checklist.
    Hope he feels all better soon!!

  4. Aww, look at that face! How handsome is he. :) I'm glad his surgery went well and I hope he isn't in too much pain.
