A Little Surgery

Adenoidectomy day for this guy:

He hopes ~
  • to miss more than two days of school
  • to eat lots of ice cream
  • to drink lots of slurpees
  • that the doctor doesn't mistake his appendix for his adenoids
His parents hope ~
  • that he will miss only two days of school
  • that he will be willing to swallow his meds
  • that he will be able to go longer than two weeks without a sinus infection with headaches, face tenderness, fevers, and horrific breath.
  • that we find a great lawyer should our child come home missing his appendix.

heres to a sucessful surgery and the ability to have and ENJOY that ice cream and slurpy... I was three when I had my tonsils and adenoids removed so I just dont recall much... dad says it was not fun and was loads of dried blood but that was 38 years ago so hopefully the process is much better and easier.
hugsssssssssssssss LAura

Let me know if there is anything that I can do for you guys.

Send me an email later on and let me know he is okay.

Love you,

He'll be in my prayers.
The Diva had her adenoids removed and they left the tonsils. Still didn't help much with the sinus problems she has either and now we have a reoccurring sore throat. But her ear infections has dramatically decreased.(knocking on wood)
Keep us posted.

My doctor gave me a cool medical slide for my microscope of a cross section of my adenoids when I had mine out at that age. I still have it.
Praying for the little man. Hang in there Caution, enjoy your wee one the next few days, lots of cuddles.

Praying all went smoothly today. Does he still have his tonsils? I recall having tonsils and adenoids removed together when I was a kid, due to recurring ear problems, etc. Hopefully, this will clear all that up for your son.
