Cooper's Surgery

On Friday, Cooper went in to have surgery to repair two hernias and to be circumcised. Poor little guy. He had to stay overnight, since he was a preemie, and was sent home on a apnea monitor, they wanted to make sure he didn't have any apnea spells. It was more of a concern him coming out of the anesthesia, and remembering to still breath. Well he was the true TROOPER that he is. He did great, no apnea spells. On a different note, Dr. Chung ended up finding that he had TWO inguinal hernia. So he repaid those and the umbilical hernia. So, THREE incisions later and being recircumcised, I say he stills holds true to his nickname from the NICU "COOPER THE TROOPER". We got home on Saturday, and he is doing great. He is not in any pain, thank goodness, and resting comfortably. We go back to the Dr. on Thursday for a follow up and hopefully his days of being in the hospital and having surgery are over for good. Thank you for all of your prayers and concerns. GOD ID GOOD!

I am so glad things all went so well. We are headed there next week for the same thing, so it's good to hear your story.
