A few weeks ago our little Payton had to go to Primary Children's Hospital and have surgery.
He had a HYDRO CELE.
Payton is terrified of doctors and hospitals.
We had to do something to prepare him for this day.
We bought him a NEW backpack.
We gave him lots of NEW prizes and toys to put in his new backpack.
Daddy let him play with his iphone...A LOT.
We gave him lots of LOVE.
He had lots of prayers directed his way.
The most important and the biggest help he was given was a blessing from his

He was so handsome in his new jammie's...aka (the required hospital gown)

BIG props to the Primary Children's Hospital staff. They were AMAZING with all the kids. They gave Payton his very own "little buddy". This "little buddy" was dressed in a gown just like Payton. The staff gave the kids ALL the doctor tools and let them play with them on their "little buddies".

Payton held the doctors hand and walked away into the operating room without looking back. His surgery was 45 minutes. Then he was in recovery and waking up for another half hour.
He had a ruff time coming out of the anesthesia. But, he just wanted mommy so that was my highlight of this day.

This was his owie a few days after his surgery.
Payton was a brave little boy and we are so proud of him. Thanks for all the prayers that were directed his way. They were answered and he is all better now!
Love you Payton!
