Long story short, we took him to Texas Children's Hospital Friday night and by 4:30am Saturday morning were admitted. The surgeon came in and gave us all of the details and set us up to have surgery sometime during the day Saturday.
Here is Brady Saturday morning after a very traumatic experience getting his IV put in. After 5 times, they finally got it in and Brady could get some rest. This would begin his fear of anyone in the hospital wearing gloves...
Saturday was a long day. We waited for a very long time to be called in for surgery. Brady needed a bath though, so Grammy & Yaya gave him a sponge bath which made him feel much more clean!
To try to calm him during our time in the hospital, our sweet nurses gave us this little car to push him around the hospital in. Notice the IV pole which had to follow us wherever we went too. What a pain!
Around 9:20pm Saturday we were called in for surgery. Brady had not had anything to eat since 2:00am that day. The surgery was very short and helped remove the staph infection. We were told by the surgeon that he had a fistula which had been infected by staph. He placed a temporary drain in which we will leave in for 7-14 days then go back to have it removed.
The above picture was right after surgery when Brady FINALLY got to have a bottle. It was his first time to have apple juice and he LOVED it! Poor baby.
We were released from the hospital Sunday afternoon around 2:30pm. Brady is so happy to be home although he is not completely pain free. The pain he feels now is nothing like the pain he had with the fistula.
Throughout this weekend we have had so much love and support from family and friends. We are so blessed!
