Surgery

Lincoln had to have surgery to fix two hernia's and then they also did his circumcision with it. The first three pictures are from before the surgery and the last one is after his surgery. It all went really well and they were able to just do a spinal block so he was just numb from his midsection down. Then they gave him a sedative so he would sleep through the whole thing. That way he didn't have to be put under and have a breathing tube put in! The nurse told us she was going to start feeding him again soon and see how he takes it. Hopefully he'll be back to bottle feeding really soon so we can take him home!!
Here daddy is holding Lincoln before his surgery and his little bear is telling Lincoln it's going to be alright. No need to cry! :)

Mommy holding Lincoln before his surgery. He was really fussy before we got there and as soon as we held him and loved on him he was calm and fast asleep! He just needs his momma! :)After the surgery. Here he is still asleep from the sedative and his legs are still numb. Everything went well and they were just waiting for him to wake up! God is so Good!

  1. Marie,

    I'm so glad all went well. I'll be praying he recovers quickly and gets back to eating!

  2. I'm glad everything went well. He's a lucky little guy that he didn't have to be awake for the circumcision. I watched both my boys have theirs done.... yikes!
