Versed Boy!

I'll be posting about the results of the surgery later this evening when Kai is asleep. Right now the poor baby is in pain. The surgery wasn't as easy as just the scopes being done and sadly, I don't think we've reached the end of the track yet. But, I am extremely happy with the team of doctors we are using. They know they're stuff and are being conservatively aggressive (is that an oxymoron?) when it comes to Kai's treatment.

In the meantime, I thought I'd upload this video clip of Kai in the pre-op room waiting as the Versed (sedative) was kicking in. Notice the swaying and the droopy eyes. He's too funny on that med.

Remember to scroll down and turn off the background music before watching the video.

Lastly, a few of you have emailed me asking what the plaque said. Here's a close-up picture of the finished product and below is what was engraved on it.


"A hundred years from now, it will not matter the house you lived in, what kind of car you drove or what was in your bank account. But the world might be a better place because you were important in the life of a child."

Dr. Ramon Ruiz

With forever gratitude for giving me the ability to speak, my family and myself wish to thank you for your genuine kindness, dedication, support and exceptional expertise in your field. It is doctors like you that make a difference in this world.

Oh my gosh, that is too funny. My daughter also adopted from China recently had surgery and also had Versed. She became like a little rag doll and could not stop laughing.

I have been following your blog for a few weeks and am really enjoying it. Feel free to stop by our blog. We recently just made a BIG announcement.

I have tears in my eyes watching sweet, loopy Kai in that video!! I hope his pain is under control by now and will pray to that end.
Love you dear friend.
