The wait seemed like forever. I made a bottle (I am no longer breastfeeding... long story) when I knew it was getting close to being called back to recovery, so he wouldn't have to wait any longer. I was a little upset because he was already awake when I went back there. There were nurses trying to give him sugar water because he was so hysterical. I guess its normal for babies to cry for about 20 min when they wake up since they are disorientated. I took my baby from them and fed him right away. He cried for a while and then calmed down. I just held him and rocked him.
My mom stayed home with Maximus, we were back by 9am and Maximus was up playing when we got home. After Rocco had breakfast got to see his brother he was feeling much better.
Later that day we got a call from his doctors office. They already received the results! The good news... there was no sign of any brain tissue coming down in the palate! The bad news... there was a soft tissue mass. I didn't know totally what that meant. I went in today because the doctor wanted to do another evaluation. I was thinking he may want to biopsy it, but was SHOCKED when he said he wanted to remove it!
On July 14, my baby boy has to have surgery! A soft tissue mass is a tumor that is usually benign in infants and children, but there, of course, is a possibility that it may be cancer (God FORBID!). I am trying my best to stay positive. I know the chances of it being the big C are slim... but its still there. I am having faith that God will be with us and will keep him safe.
One of my favorite verses is definitely giving me comfort right now...
This one is for my baby Rocco!!!
