Henry's Eye Surgery

We took Henry down to Riley Hospital's Outpatient Center for his eye surgery yesterday. I managed to snap a few photos of the event.

Here he is in the waiting area. (Before we were registered.) This is probably around 7:30 a.m. Eastern. Riley Hospital sure knows how to do a waiting area that's geared toward children.

We got into an outpatient room, and we waited and waited. And waited. And, we got Henry dressed in his "special outfit."

And, we waited.

Then, they came and gave Henry his "happy juice" so that they could take him away from us easily. It sounds so sick, doesn't it? Anyway . . . here's where he's starting to get a little loopy.

Everett was asleep at convenient times, thank goodness.

Henry and Daddy watch some Disney Channel while the medicine kicks in.

He's feeling pretty good here, I think.

And, here's the poor, little guy after the surgery. It's a different scene, isn't it? The poor guy was pretty subdued for the rest of the day.

This is Henry just after we got home. We got him dressed in his PJs, and he just laid there.

Today, he's been a lot more energetic, but he's fairly clingy. His eye doesn't look too bad, either. I think we'll actually get through this after all!

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, everyone!
