Everything was approved to have the surgery done at Stanford!!! We flew to Reno and then drove to the bay area on Sept. 12. This picture was taken the day before surgery in Carmel. We went to visit Shelly (my sis) who just recently took a job at Pebble Beach as their pastry chef... yeah she is pretty much AMAZING!
Lincoln was so happy the next morning. We checked in at 6:00am and as the nurses got him ready for the OR he was all smiles and just precious as always. I had to fight back my tears as I knew that in a few hours he would feel pretty miserable. The anesthesiologist gave him a strong sedative that made him limp and very sleepy, enough so that when the anesthesiologist took him out of our arms and walked him to the OR he was just fine. No tears or anything, he was OUT OF IT!!! Thankfully.
9 hours later when we saw him he looked very different and was uncomfortable, but not in too much pain. He drank a big bottle and fell asleep for a few hours.
We were released the next afternoon and he was so happy to get home and play. His eyes were still swollen, but went down fairly quickly.
