"Hit a homerun"

Grady is doing better with each day. He's been pretty sore the last few days after all the anesthesia and pain meds wore off. But he's still up running around like nothing ever happened.
He has an appointment on Friday to get his catheter out!! After the surgery his pediatric urologist said "We hit a homerun". He sure knows how to talk to this family doesn't he?! We're praying this will be his last procedure.

I was talking with my boss, a new first time parent, who said he couldn't imaging seeing his son go through something like that. And it is very scary just the fact that they are putting him under anesthesia is hard. Then having to watch him for several days afterwards in pain is just heart wrenching!!
But I know we did the right thing by fixing it. I hope he'll never be able to tell he went through all this!!

Here's a picture of Grady in the rear-view mirror. We got cabin fever and had to get out for a lil' bit.

I'll be going back to work tomorrow and Jason is taking off the rest of the week. It was nice spending the week with the bug...just hanging out, watching Mickey Mouse, mothering him. I just wish it wasn't under these circumstances.
