Relief :)

He is done with surgery and all went well. He went in at 9:20, the surgeon came out to talk to me at 10:02 and then I was able to go back to the recovery room with him at 10:45. He looks really good. There are two incisions one behind his ear and one in his abdomen. They stitched up the hole in his head where the drain used to come out. The rest of his day may include audiology, ENT consult, PT/OT. Thanks for the support and prayers.

Wow busy day!! I am glad to hear all went well. So does the drain go in to his abdomen or does it come outside the body?

I love that you (plural) are done with the surgery before it was even scheduled to start! I also love that it was a "run-of-the-mill" shunt insertion. No more of this "first, only, worst, most" stuff. Way to go, Charlie!!!
