Aidan's surgery

Aidan did pretty good for his surgery. He didn't come out of anesthesia happy at all, in fact, he cried for the first 5-6 hours off and on while trying to sleep. He is happy now and doesn't seem in too much pain. The incision isn't as big as I expected but it is a lot more swollen than I thought it would be. We have to go back for a checkup in 2 weeks I guess to make sure his body doesn't reject the implant. Then we will go back sometime in August, maybe beginning of September. I am going to add some pictures from the surgery so feel free to skip the last few that show the incision if you don't think you can handle a little blood.

Aidan is finally in a happy mood, but hates the bandage

Picture of the incision site, still covered with steristrips and will be until the fall off

You can kind of see how swollen that side of his head is
