December 23, 2009

Johnny,

Ambulance arrived to pick you up at Traymore at 6:30am
You arrived at Texas Institute of Surgery at 7:30am
Your surgery started at 9:00am
Your surgery was over at 10:15am
You were in recover for about 2 hours and then the ambulance was called
You left the surgery center at 12:50pm and arrived at Baylor a little after 1pm

Mom, Jackie and I saw you before you surgery and you were calm. You were complaining a little about the light being bright, you wanted us to turn it off. The anesthesiologist got you all IV'd up and rolled you into surgery. I was really
impressed at how together they were. Mom, Jackie and I were in the cafeteria when Dad and Diana arrived. Mom and I had a bet about how long the surgery would be. She said an hour. I said an hour per leg. It took an hour and 15 minutes. When we got buzzed (they gave us a beeper) that you were out of surgery, the doctor came out to talk to us and he was grinning from ear to ear. He said the surgery went well. It was a success! He said that he didn't cast your feet because he was able to release the tendons enough that you didn't need the casts to hold the position. I am so excited to see you progress!!

When you arrived at Baylor, they weighed you and you gained some weight : ) You weigh 114.3 lbs. Have you been sneaking some midnight snacks? Ha! Jackie and I left after you got some what settled in. Mom, Dad and Diana stayed. And then eventually it was just mom. I'm not sure what time she left but she sent me an email because her phone was on the charger...here it is:

Johnny is all settled in. I went by Traymore and got a ton of meds. I
couldn't believe how many different ones there are for anxiety and insomnia.
When I left the nurse was turning him and was going to give him a bed bath,
etc. He watched a little of Wyatt Earp and then lost interest.
Tell Cody thanks for helping out today. I really appreciate all the great
work he did around here this last week. He is so special to me!!
I am charging my phone now so talk to you tomorrow! Goodnight Peanut -
Granny loves you.
Oh yeah, Cody and Jackie are cute too..............

Mom is talking about the work Cody's been doing to get ready for the room add on. They came out a few days ago and poured the .... I can't remember what they are called ... for the foundation. Anyway, they are getting started and it won't be long until you have a room to come home to that will be comfortable for you and have everything that you need.

Want to hear some Mickey and Jennifer trivia...
20 years ago today at around 10pm, Mickey and I met.

Love you Johnny! You did really good today!! xo Jen
