My oldest son had to have surgery on his ingrown toenail today. We had to get up at 4:30 a.m. and leave at 5:30 for the surgery center in order to get there at 6:30. The actual surgery was at 7:30. I couldn't go to sleep last night so I ended up sleeping about 4 hours. The worst part of the surgery for everyone involved was trying to get an IV in my son. None of his veins are visible and he hates needles and that is a terrible combination. The first nurse called a second nurse to do it. She couldn't, so she called the anesthesiologist. The anesthesiologist couldn't find a vein either, so they called in someone else. The last one didn't identify herself but she got the job done, thank goodness. It was very traumatic.
Anyway, he got through the surgery okay. He has a huge bandage and some kind of medical shoe on his foot. I have to go to the pharmacy to fill a prescription for some silvadene cream and some ear drops for his toe. ;-) When the doctor handed me the prescription I gave him a funny look, I'm sure and he said "They're good for toes too." Anyway, that's done and hopefully will be healed for vacation. Said son has been playing video games all day and I've been sleeping every chance I get.
