Back to Normal...

Hyrum's surgery went well. He was suppose to take it easy but he has been running around and jumping and playing like nothing ever happened. Along with general anesthesia he had a caudal which is like an epidural but stronger. When he woke up he was suppose to be numb for an hour or two but he was already moving his legs and he could walk. He was in a lot of pain because they didn't give him any pain medicine until he woke up but it takes awhile to start working and it was obvious he wasn't numb. They had to shoot his IV with some other medicine that started working right away and he was happy after about 5 minutes. Then they fed him 4 Popsicles and he was really happy. He has been quite pleasant on his heavy narcotics ;)
