What kind of drug cocktail did they give him???

Aaron's surgery went well today- surgeon said everything went as expected. He made an incision in his lower left side and was able to successfully tie off the problem-child vein.

He's feeling pretty good right now, just watching old episodes of So You Think You Can Dance. We've eaten lunch and he's definitely walking better than I did. He's already asked when he can start running again. We'll see how things go when the medicine wears off...

Speaking of the medicine, this guy has been flat-out mischievious since recovery. He's asking me tons of questions and pestering me about everything. What did they do to my sweet husband??

I sure hope this works. I hope he no longer has any discomfort from the varicocele. And I hope that this will get us the baby we've been waiting for all this time. We will never, ever take a single day for granted.


  1. I'm glad the surgery went well! So do you have to wait three months before your next IUI....LIKE ME??

  2. I'm so glad things went great!!! Come on baby

  3. My mom is pretty crazy on drugs too! Glad to hear everything went well!!

  4. I'm glad to hear the surgery went well. My DH had the same surgery in 2006 but unfortunately we still didn't get pregnant. Things did improve, but not enough I guess. Here's hoping your DH has a much better result!!!!

  5. Congrats on acing the surgery! I know ya'll are glad to get that behind you. My DH was hilarious on the drugs after his sinus surgery. He'd ask a question, we'd explain everything, then he'd nod off - only to wake up 30 min later and ask the same thing all over again. For about 3 days.

  6. Glad everything went well! Just came across your blog today!:)
