His First Hunger Pains

They discontinued Crew's feeding at midnight. Three and a half hours later and he is experiencing his first hunger pains of life and he is not happy. Ok, so his first hunger pains were actually yesterday during a window when we were hoping we could get him into surgery in the late afternoon or evening.

Today is going to be a long day for the little guy. The sad and frustrating thing is that he is going to starve until he gets to surgery. He's an "add-on" with no set time for surgery, so he could be rolled in at 8 in the morning or 8 at night. Ugh! If it goes on too long, they will sedate him.

He's never been hungry before. And he hasn't had a poopy diaper in quite some time either, for that matter. His unusually agreeable and mellow disposition may undergo some overhaul in the coming weeks...
