Brayden was ready and quite comfortable the entire time.
Scheduled for a Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. The OR schedule was backed up. Brayden finally went in at 5:00 p.m. He is under anesthesia for only about 30 minutes, got several injections in each leg and foot. Then headed to the PACU. He was so cozy under many warm blankets, he did not want to wake up from the anesthesia. He needed a little encouragement to wake up.
Interestingly, since Brayden is on Bipap now for sleep apnea, the hospital requires us to bring the Bipap to use the PACU. The hospital inspects his machine and has it ready for him in case he needs it. He did not (he is only under anesthesia for such a short time).
Then we head home...in rush hour traffic, on the beltway. We finally arrived home around 8:30 p.m.
