My boys surgery went well I'm proud of how well they did my 3yr old was screaming a bit but only because when he woke up he was confused and scared of where he was but they let me in the recovery room and he was fine he also ripped his IV out when he did freak out but they were able to get me to give him morphine orally. My 4yr old woke up feeling fine he also didn't rip his IV out so the morphine helped him stay calm and relaxed although he did seem eager to move around shortly after. My 3 yr old came around pretty fast sitting up chatting and eating Popsicles my 4yr old just wanted to relax and drink ginger ale. My 4yr old just gets very upset when he sees the blood so when we change his gauze and looking at it so we get him to cover his eyes so it doesn't bother him. My 3 yr old says it hurts a little when we change it but he also doesn't look. It does hurt when they pee when they get urine on the gauze and then of course change it. Their doing well though we're trying to get them to not move around as much just don't want them to hurt themselves and make it worse but my boys just seem to wanna go lol glad to see that this isn't slowing them down and their doing well though. And I appreciate all the info and your guys input pros and cons.
