My baby is just fine...BETTER than fine!

Sorry for the delay in the update. It's been an awfully long day considering that we woke up at 5:00am.

Landon did surprisingly well. He wasn't upset at all that we woke him up and tossed him in the car in his pajamas. In fact, I think he was a bit intrigued at the change in routine. Colin was AMAZING. I explained to him that we couldn't eat or drink anything around Landon since he couldn't, and he didn't complain ONE bit about it. He also was so supportive. When they took Landon from me, crying, and we turned to walk back to the waiting room, he held my hand the entire way. I think he just *knew* that I needed some support at that moment. I'm so proud of my little guy.

The surgery was short, only about 30 minutes, but the waiting before hand was about THREE hours and 45 minutes. UGH. Even so, Landon was a trooper.

He was very groggy when in recovery, and slept the entire way home. Once we got here, he ate 4 pancakes, and some pretzels. That is in addition to the banana and pretzels he had in recovery. He also drank two FULL sippy cups of juice. Poor little fella was starving and thirsting to death. He held every bit of it down (thank God!).

He napped for about 2 and a 1/2 hours and by 4:00pm, he was running around, dancing, and playing with his brother. It's as if nothing at all happened.

Thank God!

I'm just so glad that this is over.

Thanks again for the positive thoughts and prayers!!

Now on to packing and buying a house.
