G Tube surgery

Zach had surgery Thursday, he did great. The surgery took about 2 hours which was forever in my book. He woke up fine, no screaming or kicking. He got a little grumpy in recovery right before we went to his room so he got some morphine and was happy. He was pretty sleepy all day and did really well with the pain. He could have the morphine as often as needed but he only needed it maybe 5 times all day and night. Today, Friday he is on tylenol and almost back to normal. His tummy looks good, no bleeding around the button and so far he is not messing with it. The surgeon put in a mic key button, which looks like a beach ball valve.
Hopefully we get to go home tomorrow, he is tolerating his feeds good so as long as he does good all day we can leave in the morning. I know he will be happy, he doesn't like not being able to run around.
