orion went into the OR at 330pm today. we are in the surgical waiting area, we should expect to hear from dr. reddy around 11pm tonight. this morning was full of anxiety because he was scheduled to go in at 9am. orion was having so much fun yesterday and this morning, playing with grandma and grandpa, checking out all his new toys from grandma, and just laughing, smiling, and having a good time. it definitely wore him out and he slept most of today. we couldn't feed him past midnight last night, so there was a lot of fussiness and crying from being hungry through the night. i stayed up all night, holding orion and watching him sleep.
now we are here, waiting for him to come out. it's a lot harder this time around because we've become so attached to our son. we miss his cries, laughs, smiles, and coos. we are all praying and hoping for a successful surgery, a speedy recovery, and a happy return of our little boy.
