The 3rd Time IS the Charm!

So, we finally went in for Brenner's surgery this morning- an excision of a dermoid cyst above the right eye. We were skeptical that it would happen since it hasn't happened twice before. He was so brave to let them take his temperature, blood pressure, oxygen, etc. They give him a medication called Versed that is a sedative. It makes him totally relaxed and 'loopy' as Ryan says, so that he isn't too scared to leave his mom and dad and go back to surgery.
It took him a while to wake up after anesthesia and the pain meds they gave him, but when he woke up he was such a good boy. He drank his juice so he could go home. He was such a big boy and so brave through everything. We are so proud of him! The doctor said his cyst was the size of an acorn... it was huge. He even took pictures to show us because it was so huge. Hopefully Brenner recovers well. He's doing great so far!
