Luc's eye surgery

Luc had his eye surgery on May 20th at 8am. The surgery only took about an hour, but the dosed him with so much knockout medicine that he didn't wake up until 2PM!!!! We tried everything to wake him up so we could get home, and nothing worked. Finally, the nurse gave us a cold washcloth to rub on his face and he actually stirred! He then proceeded to fall back asleep! I stripped him down to his diaper, and like a bad Mommy, started rubbing his body down. He finally woke up and ate and drank. Poor Cioci Bonnie and Hadleigh were with the girls again all day, but they had fun!

Luc slept the rest of the day and then when John went up to give him Tylenol, he was really HOT! He had spiked a fever of 103 and we called the doctor and they said to take him to the ER just to be safe. I thought that the virus the girls have had for the past two weeks had finally caught up with him, but better safe than sorry. The ER was packed and John had to fight to get Luc in to see the Triage nurse and they told him to wait. TWO HOURS LATER, he was still not seen (9:30PM at this time) so I told John to come home. Luc's fever had broken (thanks to the Tylenol we gave him) and he was sleeping. We kept an eye on him through the night and he slept great, woke up and proceeded to crawl around like nothing had happened. He was eating, pooping and playing!

His eyes look good, a little red in the corners still, but he seems to be doing fine. We go back for a follow up in 6-8 weeks so we will see then if it worked!
