We got moved to PICU about 6:15. Terry and I got to ride up on the elevator with him and then had to wait in the waiting room while they got him situated. Braydon is sleeping right now. He has a drainage tube from his head that is removing the excess fluid and some blood. He has 3 IVs. One in each arm and one in the leg. He also has an arterial line that is monitoring all his vitals.
The surgeons told us that the surgery went well, but we probably won't see the results for a couple of days as the swelling is going to get worse. However he looks perfect right now. Braydon ended up needing a lot of blood due to the fact that his skull was popcorn like. That means that parts of his skull were really thick and then some parts were really thin. So we they cut his skull there was a lot of blood.
They want him to rest as much as possible so unless he is really agitated I won't be able to him until tomorrow. He also won't be able to eat until tomorrow. But by then I should have plenty of milk stored up. I just want to cuddle him but I know this is what's best for him. Only one of us can stay through the night so that will be me. I just don't think I can leave my baby. I'm sure Terry will be up here bright and early. Hopefully he brings me a Starbucks. I hear we might be in for a rough night.
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. We couldn't haven't gotten through the day without it.
My perfect sleeping angel.
