So we're back in our room.
Dovi was in recovery by 4pm and now at 7pm we're back in our room.
Dr. Feldman was very pleased with the outcome of surgery. He was able to do both surgeries as he had hoped and did some repair to the big toe. It's still big but will not get bigger.
His leg is casted to right below the knee in a cast wrapped with an ace bandage (not waterproof-boo!)
I've been told that if he did not have the cast on we would see a screw of some type protruding from his skin (Benjie says I turned a tad white when Dr. Feldman told us that). But when he changes the cast in a week or so he'll take out the screw. Phew. I would not be able to cope with screws protruding. Yikes.
Recovery was interesting. He was really really irritated at everyone and everything-he made the nurse pull his extra IV. Then he was agitated so we gave him morphine. Then he fell asleep and his oxygen levels kept dropping so we put him on oxygen. Then he fell back asleep again and his blood pressure went sky high-190s/160s. Yikes!
A little valium and blood pressure meds took care of that nicely and now we're back in our room.
He's on oxygen we hope he'll come off that quickly.
All in all we're happy with the way the day went!
