I woke up at 5 am, thinking I needed to be at the hospital before Ash’s surgery. Josh said I could just wait and come when he wakes up from surgery. When Ethan came down for breakfast, I told him that Ashton had to stay the night in the hospital and have surgery this morning. Ethan bowed his head and started crying. Poor little guy. We knelt down and had a little prayer for Ash and then E felt much better.
Here are some pictures from Josh’s night with Ash…
The kids and I got to the hospital as they wheeled Ash into the room. He was very foggy with anesthesia and wasn’t a happy camper. Josh took the kids home and I stayed with Ash. As the anesthesia was wearing off he was very uncomfortable and unhappy and I was nervous about how the day would go. He got some morphine and we kept the pain under control the rest of the day and we had a great time. He even ordered a pizza for lunch and LOVED it! We watched Family Feud most of the day, some Teen Titans Go and some movies from the hospital ‘rental’. We laughed a lot and had lots of visitors also!
Last night when Josh told Ashton he would miss his first Priesthood Session, Ash started crying. Soooo Josh, Paw and Justin watched it in the hospital with Ashton!!!! (I ran to the store and then took a quick shower while they were with him. Grammy took the three other kids to Outback with Grandma Schroeppel and Aunt Kim. LIFESAVER!)
They had us stay one more night to get all the antibiotic treatment through Ash. By the end of the night, Ashton was really enjoying his hospital experience.
