Daxtons surgeries went really well. It was unbelievable how fast it was. Ryan and I went down to our favorite place to eat in Salt Lake, the Rainbow Cafe, and got breakfast went back up to the waiting room and he was done. The first 24 hours were really rough for him. He was in A LOT of pain and pretty much cried all day long even with the Lortab that was prescribed. But the next morning he woke up happy. It still hurts him when he pees, he cries a little but he is healing really nicely. The ear tubes went so smoothly and honestly I don't think he even knows anything happened to his ears. Ryan and I have the guilt for putting him through a painful procedure but we hope that it will benefit him in the future. Through this whole adventure my four year old Ellie has learned a new vocabulary word-the "p" word for the male genitalia. It is what it is. Now whenever someone asks how Daxton is she immediatly says that is "p" hurts, but she says the whole word. It is quite embarrassing. Kids, you just got to love them!!
So now no more procedures until his 2 year post transplant cath in Sept. Yahoo!

Daxton goes in for surgery tomorrow for his ear tubes and circumcision. We head up to the hospital at 6 am. I know that it is necessary but I hate to put him through all of this especially when he is so happy and content with life. I'm not complaining just sad that tomorrow he will not be a happy camper. Send some prayers our way and also to all the heart babies going in for heart surgery. We are thinking of you Mckay...Good luck buddy.
