Sam's Surgery

He is actually smiling in this picture, but his little face is so swollen it is hard to tell!

Our little guy had his BIG surgery today. He was so good. I cannot say enough about our hospital, Children's HealthCare of Atlanta, Scottish Rite. The nurses are amazing and the amenities are equal to a nice hotel. They even have room service and family activities. Our team of doctors, Dr. Williams (Craniofacial/Plastic Surgeon), Dr. Thomas (Craniofacial Dentist) and Dr. Aiden (ENT) were comforting and more than competent. Each visited us before and after their part in the surgery and promised to treat Sam as is he were their own. Sam, of course, has charmed everyone he comes in contact with. I have so many details to share, but I need to get some sleep first. I will update tomorrow. Oh, and by the way, it RARELY ever snows here, and wouldn't you know it - it was like a blizzard. I left the hospital (Russ is still there) to get my other children settled and then go back up, but now I am snowed in at home. As much as I look forward to even a flake of snow, I am hoping it will be warm enough tomorrow so that I can get to my baby!!!

Hi Julie...I was wondering what you guys were up too. It has been so long since you updated and I was getting worried. So happy to hear that Sam's surgery went well. I hope you are able to get back to the hospital soon but at least his daddy is with him. Best wishes on a speedy recovery to little Sam!
