After all of that we had to wait about an hour until they came and took him from us to start the anesthesia. I hadn't realized we wouldn't be with him when they put him under and was able to hold myself together as they took him away. A mere 20 minutes later, Dr. Allen came in to tell us everything went perfectly and little man was just coming too while being cuddled by the nurses (I've got to admit I was a bit of a jealous mama). And they decided to keep him in recovery a bit longer because of his past with RSV and wheezing.
I was grabbing a coffee in the waiting room when I heard the doors to the surgery center open and looked straight into the face of our little guy, who just lit up when our eyes met. He reached out to me and I snuggled him to pieces.
Our nurse told us we would be there for another hour or so as they checked his vitals. We stuck a bottle in his mouth right away since he hadn't been able to eat or drink anything since midnight and he fell fast asleep.

the oxygen thingy but he was so good afterwards
