Hi Tara, my 4 year old daughter Brooke had this surgery with Dr. Park in July, so everything is still very fresh in our minds! We stayed at the parkway hotel, which I would recommend. I think you can take the train from the airport, but we rented a car as we had my daughter's twin and grandmother with us. I would recommend leaving your 10 month old at home. It would have been nice to just focus on our daughter who was having the surgery. The surgery took about 3 hours. Despite the heavy medication the first day, Brooke was surprisingly alert afterwards and I would recommend books and videos for your daughter to keep her entertained while she is flat on her back in the ICU. (Brooke also enjoyed ice chips and needed vaseline for her lips in the ICU. After surgery, her lips and throat were very dry. These were not offered, but were provided once I asked for them) The heavy pain meds were discontinued the second day and after that Brooke had Tylenol with codeine and valium (to prevent muscle spasms.) By about day 4 I believe, Brooke was on Tylenol only. It was unbelievable!!! For the plane ride home to Portland (with a plane change in Phoenix) We only gave her one dose of Tylenol with codeine, not so much that she needed it, but because we wanted her to sleep. All in all, I was amazed at how little medication she needed considering that it is major surgery. Brooke never did take the prescription meds we were given once she was home. We are now 4 weeks post surgery and Brooke is still weak, but can do things she was not previously able to do, like sit criss cross. We do 3 physical therapy sessions a week (one is a 2 hour session). This enables us to do 4 hours, but only 3 days a week. Home therapy is hard, but she is only 4. Good luck to you and your daughter!
