My baby boy will undergo general anesthesia Thursday.
What should I expect when I get him home?

My 20-month-old son will undergo an outpatient procedure to repair 2 inguinal hernias on Thursday.
I'm stressing of course, but the doctors assure me that Henry will be fine. (They've done thousands of these operations; the hospital is excellent and the procedure involved but relatively uncomplicated.)
Parents or Caregivers:
Are there any side-effects, or latent effects of anesthesia I should know about?
What will the 24-48 hours after the surgery be like?
Any secret tips to make him extra-comfortable?
