Back Home

We are HOME! Bilal was back in the room with us just after 12:30pm. He was awake but too grumpy to drink, so we had to keep the IV in for a while. I finally persuaded him that if he had some water we could go home, so he took a few sips, kept them down and out the door we went, at about 1:30. The surgeon had no problem fixing the hernia, so hopefully no more problems in the future. On the way back Zakir asked Bilal if he wanted to eat, and his answer was yes to french fries and a milkshake from McDonalds. We couldn't turn down that request today, so we stopped for his food and to get his prescription filled. Right now he is a little bit cranky, but wanting to play with his toys, working on getting back to his normal self. Yay! Thank you so much for all the thoughts and prayers, that's what gets us through these things. And miraculously, the knots in my stomach are gone!

How great that all went well & you were home so soon! It just amazes me how these kids can eat like that after having anesthesia! My stomach couldn't handle a shake & fries!

Well wishes from us & give him a big hug!
