Day 4 and 5

Here is how are day went yesterday

Asi es como nos fue ayer

7:30am. Order breakfast from the liquid diet (oatmeal, apricot nectar and milk)

7:30am. Ordenamos la comida del hospital del menu de "liquidos" (avena, nectar de durazno y leche)




He ate three tablespoons of oatmeal..that was it. I was feeling like we were going to be at the hospital for a long time




Tobias solo se comio tres cucharadas de avena, nada mas. Me senti como si fueramos a estar en el hospital por un tiempo muy largo

8:00. Surgeon on call came by and said we could go ahead and try solids. Which I don't remeber if I commented on that in my last post, but that was the only thing that Tobias seemed to care about, but of course couldn't have. The surgeon also said that if he managed to start drinking fluids, then we could get rid of the IV and maybe go home later that night!.

8:00 El cirujano reviso a Tobias y dijo que podiamos empezar con solidos. No me acuerdo si lo mencione antes, pero Tobias parecia tener hambre y querer comer solidos el dia anterior, pero como nos habian dicho que no podia, pues ni modo. El cirujano tambien dijo que si Tobias emepzaba a tomar liquidos, depronto podriamos ir a la casa esa noche!



Right after the surgeon left I gave Tobias half of my bagel with cream cheese. And he ate the whole thing!


Apenas se fue el cirujano, le di a Tobias la mitad de mi bagel con queso crema. Se lo devoro!






11:00. For the first time drank his milk. Not all of it, but the nurses were pleased. Unfortunately, right after that we gave him some tylenol for the pain and he is not very fun of the tylenol, so he threw everything up, including the precious milk.




11:00. Por primera vez se tomo su leche. No tada, pero suficiente para impresionar a las enfermeras. Desafortunadamente despues le dimos acetaminofen para el dolor y no le gusto mucho, entonces se vomito todo, incluyendo la leche.




2:00pm. His IV got out by accident, I freaked out seeing a lot of blood staining daddy's t-shirt, but it turned out to be a good thing, because they just took the whole thing out and let him free of needles and cables.




2:00pm. La aguja intravenosa por donde le daban el suero se le salio y le empezo a salir un monton de sangre, y yo por supuesto me asuste un monton. Pero al final resulto una buena cosa, porque le quitaron el suero y lo dejaron libre de agujas y de cables.






2:30pm. He wasnt feeling so well, but I thought he looked just sad from being held in that room so long, so we went for a ride around the hospital.




2:30pm. Tobias no se sentia muy bien, pero me dio la impresion que era solo triteza de estar en ese cuarto del hospital por tanto tiempo, asi que decidimos dar un paseo alrededor del hospital.





He also managed to drink his milk, more than the last time!




Y mientras dabamos el paseo se tomo toda la leche!











3:30pm. The surgeon decided that since he was drinking and eating (albeit just a little), he was tolerating his food, so it was time for us to go....home!!!
3:30pm. El cirujano determino que como estaba tomando liquidos y tolerando la comida, era hora de irnos.... a casita!!!





4:15pm. So happy to be going home!!!


Muy feliz de ir a casa!!

We got home later evening and we were all exhausted, we just have time to eat a little bit, Tobias got a sponge bath and then we all went to bed.


I wasnt sure about leaving the hospital so soon, to be honest, but it was the best decision. Tobias slept much better, although he is still attached to me, which I dont mind. And daddy got the honor to get up in the middle of the night to fix his bottle, while mommy stay in bed with the little guy (which I didn't mind either)




This morning he gave his very few steps after surgery and looks very happy to be home with big sister and brother and with Grandma Paulette.




Thank you all so much again for all the prayers and thoughts. There are no words that I could express here to show how grateful I am for having all of you being part of Tobias O Story. I just know that all your prayers and positive energy played a huge role in his succesful surgery and ongoing recovery and lets just say, if I could pay you somehow, you all would be billioneirs. God is definately good!!






Llegamos por la tardecita y obviamente estabamos todos rendidos, asi que solo tuvimos tiempo de comer un poco, darle a Tobias un banho de esponja y derechito a la camita. Para ser honesta yo no estaba segura si salir del hospital tan pronto era buen idea, pero ahora veo que fue la mejor decision. Tobias durmio mucho mejor que en el hospital, aunque todavia esta super apegado a mi (lo cual me parece perfecto), y al papa le toco el honor de levantarse por la noche a preparale el tetero mientras la mama se quedaba en la camita junto al chiquitin (lo cual me parece aun mas perfecto).




Esta manana Tobias dio sus primeros pasos despues de la cirugia y se le nota dichoso de estar junto con su hermano y hermana mayor y con la abuela Paulette.




Muchas gracias a todos por su continuo apoyo, oraciones y energia positiva. No hay palabras que puedan expresar lo agradecida que me siento por tenerlos a todos usteded haciendo parte de la historia del O de Tobias. Estoy convencida que todas sus oraciones, pensamientos y energia positiva jugaron un rol gigante en la exitosa cirugia y en su continua recuperacion. Solo digo, que si les pudiera pagar de alguna manera de todo lo agradecida que esoty, todos ustedes serian multi-millonarios!. Dios es definitivamente muy bueno!!
