Owen and Addi had a ball playing at Kokomo Beach today. It was a perfect day. They were both a little timid at first, but by the end they were running through the fountains giggling and laughing. Little Lilly was not so fond of it all, however. She clung to mommy quite tightly, and let out little cries every so often to remind us all that she didn't approve.
Owen was a good little patient today (6/9). We all had a good experience. Everyone--the nurses, the doctor, the anesthesiologist,--everyone was so good with our little guy. They made him feel welcome with his very own Elmo balloon as soon as he walked in the room. Everyone was so very friendly and engaged Owen in conversation. He left to go to surgery via a wagon ride--which if you know anything about Owen--THAT is also right up his alley!
He came back just a short time later...groggy and waking up...but doing well. He ate a popsicle and drank some juice right away. Within a short amount of time he was ready to go. He rode out in the wagon and headed on his way.
