A long stay that quickly turned into a short stay!!!!

Well so much for me catching up on my long overdue posts!!!! Trace gets to go home today!!!! He has done awesome, he's eating, drinking, taking his med's orally, walking, and going to the bathroom, all the requirements for a ticket to go home!!! He is going home with a drain tube out his back that he will have to have for two weeks, no swimming, and rest for a while, but then back to normal activity! He will have to come back in 4-6 weeks for ultrasounds and renal scans and hope everything looks great! He is such a sweet boy he hasn't complained and has said thankyou and please to all his nurses and he has been quite the flirt:) I was hoping to post a pic but don't have my cord for my camera:( so I will post some later.

Trace's "Not So Exciting Day"

So we're up at Primary Children's Hospital today for Trace's surgery on his kidneys. We came up to Salt Lake last night so we could come to PCH this morning. It is my first time leaving Peyton (other than when I had to leave her in the NICU) and a first time surgery for Trace so its becoming a new experience for all of us:) His surgery started at 11:00 a.m. this morning and could go from anywhere from 3-5 hours. Little stinker didn't even care that he was leaving us when the doctors wheeled him away, he's a tough little cookie. We'll keep updates on how he is doing, he'll be up here for about a week, so maybe I'll get caught up on some long needed posts!
