The one thing that did get me was when they took him from me he started really crying. The anesthesiologist had told me that that was good because he would take in big gulps of the gas and go right out. I assume he did because the surgery only took about 15 minutes. By the time I walked back into the waiting area, wrote a letter and read five pages of my book the nurse came and got me. We waited over an hour before his surgery! Seems like the surgery should have taken longer.
He was not a happy camper when he woke up. That was a side effect from the anesthesia. The nurse gave him to me and I had to blow oxygen in his mouth so he could have fresh air and wake up all the way. He calmed down after about five minutes.
He was such a big boy. The only time he really cried was when I gave him to the doc to take back to surgery. The few short I'm not happy cries when hunger cries because I couldn't give him anything to eat before the surgery. Once he got some water and crackers after the surgery he was just fine. There were parts of the day where he was fussy but overall it wasn't bad.
I really liked the doctors and nurses at the hospital too. They answered all my questions and calmed me down. Even though I had a good experience I don't ever want him to have surgery again.
