For a twenty minute procedure of Botox.
Thankfully Brayden was quite happy all day. I was hungry waiting in pre-op for so long so I was sneaking snacks (note to self, pack snacks that are quiet, no loud packaging or crunching).
Shots of Botox up and down both legs. His legs have been very tight and his hip positions are looking troublesome. Praying the botox helps with his comfort and position.
The orthopedic surgeon signs all the areas for where he will have botox then I sign the areas as well...not signing on paper but all over his legs, front and back.
He was in the PACU and not wanting to wake up. He was holding tight to my hand...my precious boy.
He did wake up when they started removing the monitor stickers, etc. And he was made so he went into a screaming fit when he holds his breath and turns blue. The boys does this often but oh how I wish he would not do it in the PACU. The nurses were getting concerned and called the anesthesilogist, put him back on oxygen...while Brayden would scream, hold his breath and then do it all over again. I continued to reassure him that he does this and is just fine once he calms down.
Well, he did calm down but then starting seizing. I was saying "Oh, he is fine, this is just his normal seizure. We can home go." The nurse was cautious but filled out our discharge papers. By the time the anesthesilogist came Brayden was fine and we wheeled out.
The botox seems to have helped a little already. It also helps dressing him. Now that cooler weather is here, putting pants on a child with tight legs is a tedious task for all involved. And praying to avoid any major hip problems for a long while.
