I'm so happy to be kicking off the year with a new photography project - 10 on 10. On the 10th of every month I'll be sharing 10 photos taken on a single day in the life of our family. This month, I decided to document the day of Jonah's surgery. It was a day I'd been dreading since we first found out he needed surgery, and I figured a little photo therapy would be a nice distraction. \1\ Early - and very cold - drive to Children's Hospital
\2\ Our tiny little patient
\3\ This was the hardest part for me... right before he went back. He was starving and miserable and all I wanted to do was take him and run the other direction. Instead I had to hand him over to strangers and trust he was in good hands.
\4\ Coming out of the anesthesia... the surgery was a success and he did great!
\5\ Tummy full, time to sleep
\6\ Family nap time
\7\ No more hernia
\8\ Hanging with daddy
\9\ Getting back to his smiley self
\10\ I think I needed this as much as he did
I'm joined in this project by a group of amazing photographers... head on over to Catherine's blog to see a day in her life, then continue around the circle until you end up back here!
