Update #3

Parker has been out of surgery for a few hours. They started him a fentanyl drip (continuous pain medication in his iv) because he has been hurting.

His nasal cannula (oxygen) is bothering him the most! He will not leave it in his nose. He also wants something to drink so bad. He keeps asking for milk, apple juice, chicken and French fries. Poor thing. He is loving the mouth swabs and sucks them dry!

Right now we are in the waiting room because his heart rate was increasing and nurse wanted him to have less stimulation. They did an EKG to look at his heart rhythm and it was normal, so that is a praise! They decided to start a Precidex drip to help relax him. He is also on Dopamine for his blood pressure. Right now he is resting comfortably and watching toy story 3! Such an amazing little guy :)
