zane surgery update.

zane surgery update., originally uploaded by hep.

quick and dirty surgery update post from my phone, usual disclaimer of plz excuse all spelling/grammar errors applies. zane's actual tonsillectomy and eartube surgery went fine. however when they tried to bring her up from sedation she started foaming up lung fluid (post obstructive pulmonary edema) and her bloodox plummeted. she has to be on a resperator overnight and is currently sedated in pediatric icu until her lungs are fluid free. I am actually freaking out about 50% less than expected, tho they were talking about lifting her to stanford instead and I probably would have lost it then (my brother died at stanford from similar post-operative complication issues and I have a big hangup about it for those who don't know. I won't even visit people there). she will be ok and they are hoping to take her off the vent tomorrow morning. I will be staying at the hospital until she leaves if anyone needs me. I am only available by sms with some limited irc contact as well. hope you are all doing ok. also to everyone who said I was overparanoid about post-op complications: being right sucks. the problem with paranoia is all the times you end up being right :(((((

Decided to check in on you and see you just posted this... that's awful, surprised you're taking it so well as it sounds traumatic from the memories if nothing else...

Glad to hear she'll be okay in the end, but I know it sucks right now. :( Hope she gets well soon hep, and that you're doing well.
Here's hoping that Zane can get out bright and early tomorrow with no more issues. It sucks when something happens to your kids and you have to sit and watch and pray. Prayers going out to you all.
I'm glad I looked here because I had no idea what was going on. The tubes and stuff look scary. I'm thinkin' about you, mama, and your baby. (more <3's)
You and your family will be in my thoughts. I'm so sorry y'all are dealing with this and I hope she's better soon.
Oh noes! How scary and know that we are thinking of you. Please update again when Zane comes off the vent.
Thinking of you and Zane right now...that is very scary. Please let us know how things are soon...if you even need to talk any time of day or night call. Much love to you both!
Omg, so scary! I would have been losing my mind. Since you brother had complications too, maybe sensitivity to anesthesia runs in the family? Hope Zane is up and running soon!
I'm glad that they didn't have to bring her to Stanford. If I were in your shoes, I think I would have started bawling and irrationally tried to prevent them from doing so.

I wish I lived closer! I'm come by and drop off some yummy food for you.
how horribly scary for both of you. thinking good thoughts for zane and hope she makes a speedy recovery.

hang in there and know that d. and i are thinking of you.
I hope she's well and back on her feet soon. You and the family take care as well
massive best wishes for zane's early recovery. kids deserve the best health and nothing less.
if she's 1/2 as tough as her mom.. shit, 1/4, she'll ace this..
As I said on FB, *hugs* and hope everything goes well from here, and she is feeling better.
Whoa -- insane.

I would've thought that to be a nothing operation. That's all kinds of screwy. =/
