Kieron's surgery went well yesterday. He has had a right orchidopexy (sounds dead complicated doesn't it!), but it's basically pulling his testicle down in to his scrotum as it hadn't descended as it should (can't remember if I previously said what the op was!). He two cuts, one on his tummy, one on his "googlies", as we call them! His surgeon did say the testicle was very high, and because the blood vessels attached are pulled so taut now there is a risk it could retract again, meaning more surgery, also the blood vessels could die, meaning the testicle does too, so fingers crossed for none of that happening. Check up in 3 months.
It usually takes 35 mins to get to Alder Hey, so we set off at 6.30am, giving us an hour and a half. We still got stuck, it took us an hour and 15 minutes to go 10 miles, one hour of that to go 1 mile! Shocking traffic. Anyway we got there only 20 minutes late at 8.20. I had to go with Kieron to theatre while they popped him of to sleep, was horrible and I bawled my eyes out. I thought something had gone wrong because his breathing went strange. He was fine within an hour of waking up, I was told to try him with a drink and some food, and it's a good job I took some with me, they came back after an hour to ask if he's eaten, even though they didn't actually offer us anything for him! He was soon wrecking the ward so we were kicked out pretty quick!
Last night I slept from 9.15 to 7am, then fell asleep with Kieron this morning from 10 to 12, and I still feel sooooo tired. Kieron seems fine today, although his "bits" are very bruised, and he can't have a bath until Sunday (ha ha no chance of lasting that long before he's desperate for one!), his dressings have come off anyway, and how am i supposed to keep his nappy area dry?
