Little T's surgery went well

Thanks for all your well wishes. I think they helped.  

Little T's fistula was closed with only a little bleeding. 

The hospital has a new outpatient surgery area with many nice new features.  In particular they have a doll, a mask and other OR equipment to put on the doll. And a 'Child Life' person to help talk to him about it.  I think it made the whole experience so much easier for him.  The anesthesiologist said that he "was very brave.  He let the mask be put on and tried to tell them how he smelled then fell asleep."

In fact he had his smoothest experience yet in the OR.  So smooth that they sent him home after a couple hours. 

Little T asked for spaghetti for dinner and ate it.

We're so relieved and proud of our little boy.  And thankful to the nurses and doctors.
