a little behind...

Hudson after Surgery with his arm restraints, we call them WINGS

Hudson the night before surgery




We took Brooks to Pre-opp the day before the surgery, so we ended up taking the boys to the park and the train.

Off course I am a little behind... But we have been so busy with Hudson this past week, it has been so crazy. Hudson had his surgery this past Thursday and it went well, we ended up only having to stay at Texas Children's one night and we were able to come home Friday morning. Hudson can't put anything in his mouth, and he has to wear arm braces on his arms so that he doesn't put his fingers in his mouth. This off course has made things a bit crazy at our house. Hudson is used to a pacifier, so needless to say he wakes up all through the night crying because he can't get to his hands, it's pretty sad, so Clint and I take turns pacing with him around the house till he falls back asleep. Thank God Clint stayed home this week, I don't know what I would have done if he would have had to work. The good thing is that his cleft is fixed, and that on Friday he can take his arm braces off and one more week he can have his pacifier back.

I love his wings! Perfect wings for a perfect little angel :)

Glad all went well. Does he start to practice eating soon?

so happy the surgery went well. It is so hard when they are too little to understand what's going on...
