Moments before going in!

Worst part of the whole day for me!

I feel like I was hit by a train!!

I am so thankful for this little boy!!!!

Today started very early for us. We woke up at 5am and had to be to Primary Childrens at 6am. I had got everything together last night and didnt make it to bed til almost 12:30am and woke up a few times so pretty much not much sleep for me. We checked in and then they took us back to get his vitals and get him changed. After that a nurse came in to do an exam on him and make sure his lungs were okay to do the surgery. 3 or 4 times I thought they were going to cancel it. She seemed concerned with his lungs since he did still have a bit of his cold and his double ear infection. The surgeon came in for a quick review of what was going to happen and she even mentioned to him his lungs were still a bit stuffy. He didnt seem to concerned but said the anesthesiologist had the final say in all that so she called him to come check him out. He came and listened and said since he didnt have asthma and we didnt smoke it was okay to go ahead and do the surgery as planned. He made a good point that if the canceled ever surgery that they came in with a cold they pretty much wouldnt do any surgeries in the winter. He said they only cancel ones with colds that do have asthma or are around smoke. It was time do get on with the show so by the time he talked to us Jaydan was already as high as a kite and almost out of it due to the medicine they gave him to calm his nerves and make him looping which it did!! His eyes were going 90 miles an hour and he was giggling like crazy! It was so funny. Then came the tough part. He was going to go one way and we were to turn and go back the other way. I teared up but was trying to hold it together so it didnt scare him. It was really tough for me but I made it through. after almost an hour the surgeon walked in and said everything went well and he was being moved into recovery. About 5 min later it was time for me to go see him, The first part of recovery only one of us could go back and Kam was sweet and let me but I now wish it was him!! Do you know how are it was turning the corner and hearing your baby scream like someone was killing them?!? He was so terrified and flipping all over the place. It broke my heart in a million pieces! He was trying to rip out the iv in his foot and digging at his face. Instead of just cuddling him and loving him I had to help hold his hands down and try and control him! If I never have to experience a moment like that with one of my kids it will not be long enough!! It took him almost an hour to calm down!! It was making his heart and oxygen go way down when he was hysterical and there was nothing I could do. We tried everything. He was just so terrified! Finally we got to go home just after 10am and the day had just begun! When we got him home he was a maniac!! I have never seen him that wild and crazy!! He would be bouncing off the walls then just crash!! My sister Kim was here with me THANKFULLY!! Then my mom got her to help out and pick up Maddie for a sleepover again THANKFULLY!! Right after he was released Kamrin had to go to work because they are right in the middle of Sundance. I needed all the help I could get! My mom bought Jaydan a cash register which he LOVES!! Played with it all night! She even bought something for Maddie. Thanks mom!! My sister Steph came to see him and brought him Balloons, coloring book, crayons and a puzzle! He has already dug into all of it. He loves every show thats in the coloring book and gets so excited! Thanks Bill and Steph!! One of our home teachers stopped by and gave him a triple chocolate fudge cake yummmmmy!!! Also Shaless stopped by and brought him balloons, balloons and more balloons! He LOVES balloons and when Maddie sees them oh boy the war will be on :-) Thanks Jared and Shaless!! Tonight is was a bit sore and started crying in pain and is now very drugged and sleeping great! I just wanna say thank you to all of you who have showed and love or concern through this past month! It really means more to me then you will ever know! I feel like I have been in a nightmare for the last month and a half and I now am starting to wake up and have hope that my nightmare is over for good. They are now testing it but the surgeon predicted there is no cancer involved and I felt like a million pounds was lifted off of me in that split second. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers that has gotten through this all. THANK YOU!!!

When you wrote about Jaydan having to go one way, and you the other, I started crying!
