Landons eye surgery

So yesterday Landon had his eye surgery. I was anxious the whole time!! Driving to that hospital... the one we spent so much of our time at when Kael was alive, walking through the same doors we did while we waited for Kaels surgery to be done.. the smells the same nurses etc.. it brought back many emotions and flashbacks to Kaels short life. The surgery was a little over an hour long... it gave me lots of time to remember, worry and process what was going on back there. I was so nervous because they had to put in a breathing tube and just the word send chills up my back. Now don't get me wrong.. we did this surgery all in good cause. Landon will be able to see much better and his eyes will be able to focus. The good out weighs all of the bad!! But non the less my stress and anxiety was through the roof!! When the doctor came out to let me know that all was well I had a huge sigh of relief. It was time for me to go back to see him in recovery. He was FREAKING OUT!! Arms swinging, screaming at the top of his lungs trying to pull his IV'S out it wasn't good so the nurse decided to put him back to sleep for a while. It was a good thing she did he was much happier the second time around!! Yesterday he was a cuddle bug the whole day, he would try to rub his eyes and say "owie eyes, owie eyes". They are all red and puffy and are still leaking but the doctor thinks the surgery went well. Since he is so young we wont know for sure for a few weeks and there is a 30% chance they will have to repeat the surgery so for his sake and ours please keep your fingers crossed!! Last night while holding Landon I could smell that hospital smell, the medicine, the tape just the smell that brings me right back to Kael. I sure miss that little boy!! I know he was watching over Landon to keep him safe and strong for us!! I sure hope he knows how much I love him and that I think of him daily!! Thanks for all of your love and prayers Ill keep you all updated when we know more of the outcome of surgery :) here are a few pics from yesterday!
