he's out

Everything looks good and we're told it went great.

They actually ended up doing something different than what they planned on doing.  He went in for a cordotomy and ended up having more of a superglautoplasty (?? or something that sounds kinda like that).  Apparently it's something they do quite routinely.  We're hopeful that this will be it, but there's always that possibility that they'll have to go back in again.  We just have to wait and see.

So everyone's frantically getting infusions ready to keep Caelan sedated until the planned extubation tomorrow morning.  If they don't work fast enough they (and we) are going to have one crazed little boy flying off the bed in his usual post op manner!  I can never understand why these things aren't prepped while he's in surgery!?!?

Note: I've confirmed it's called a supraglottoplasty - I was pretty close, eh??


  1. my fingers are crossed for a smooth ex-tubation tomorrow morning and speedy turn around from this sedation!! xoxo miss you all tons

  2. Everything will go great today. Love and Hugs,

  3. I'll be thinking about all of you, hope you have a good weekend, hope Caelan has smiles for you again soon!
