Day 41

Eli is home. He ended up having a major reconstruction and needed a prosthetic stapes and a vein graft to close up an 'oval window' fistula. (nope, I'm not explaining it..too tired!)

Here he is pre-op...looking good!

Right before being taken back to the OR (yup, that's me... the stay-puffed marshmallow mom)

In the PACU just coming out of anesthesia

Getting a kiss from Mom...

It was a long ordeal and Eli had difficulty with waking up...and then when he did wake up, he couldn't move without being extremely dizzy...and when he was dizzy, he threw up :(

He's on lots of good drugs and resting now.

We're still uncertain as to what happens next, but the surgeon said he was 'hopeful'.

Update later.

those are blackmail photos for when he's older ... I'm glad he's doing well.
