Surgical success


Fledgling docs

Granddaughter Molly Kate, 5, came through a recent outpatient hernia repair with flying colors and praise from the surgeon and the anesthesiologist for her pre- and post-op behavior.

Of course that bit of praise was relayed to me via our son who is definitely a proud—and relieved, papa.

The photos above of 3-year-old Walker and big sister Molly Kate are evidence that the hospital experience had an impact on both Louisiana grands. I filched these photos from daughter-in-law Katie’s facebook post Friday.

Their little brains soak up so much information from their experiences. So glad this was a good one!

I had hernia surgery last year. Post-op was very painful. I had to be helped to the toilet and to bed. Good luck and best wishes to your granddaughter.

Facbook is great for filching. I took a few myself from Granddaughter Rita's page. that's how I keep up with their lives.

Happy to hear your news. Any hospital visit for a child is tough for parents. Dianne

Awful for any child to be in a hospital but so happy the surgery was a success and smiles were enjoyed. How cute the doll in scrubs.

Reading this brought back memories of when my sone had a hernia surgery when he was 4 years old.I remember how sad he looked right before. Everything was fine. Thank God your granddaughter is fine!

I think it is more scary for the parents.
