Surgery is over
Nikolai came through his surgery just fine. He was nervous about the operation and that turned to trepidation. He was very brave and held my hand tight until they wheeled him away. Dennis "held my hand" during the surgery by keeping me talking and my mind off of the surgery. It was quick and the surgeon came back to the room afterwards. He had to put in extra stitches because he had to seal off some extra blood vessels. Nikolai was not fully awake and kept asking where his Papa was. He was not in pain at the hospital but now that he is home, he is feeling pretty sore and in pain. The next week will be hard on him.
