Henry made it through a surgical procedure to fix his hydrocele, a hernia-like problem. The surgeon reported things went well after he completed the surgery. Once Henry made it out of surgery he proceeded to get sick on mom a couple of times. The experts didn’t seem to think that was cause for concern and released us.
Before we made it to the interstate, Henry decided to get sick again in the car. So we made a quick call back to ambulatory surgery. They sent us to the ER and we worked through them to make sure Henry was in good shape. The surgical resident decided it was best that we stay the night in the hospital for observation.
When we moved up to our room for the night we were greeted with a screaming baby in a shared room. Henry didn’t seem to mind at the time, but got his payback later that night when he was the screaming baby. Grandma was there to walk the halls with Henry to keep him calm while Mom tried to catch a little bit of sleep.
In the end, the doctors think he was nauseous from the anesthesia and that caused him to get sick.
They released Henry Tuesday morning and everyone made the trip to Pella. Now that Henry is home, he is on the mend and in pretty good spirits. We have even had some smiles. They expect him to be fully recovered in a couple of weeks.
