same song, second verse

Or, tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy…version 2.  :)

Yes, Ryan will have his tonsils and adenoids removed pretty soon.  The ENT took one look at him and said, “Those things are HUGE.  Let’s get them out of here!”  We expected to hear that—Ryan’s been dealing with some strep throat, a perpetual sore throat (and the concomitant horrific breath), night-time snoring, significant bloody noses, a hair-trigger gag reflex, and very slow growth/weight gain, all of which can be indications that a tonsillectomy is needed.  He’ll go March 17.  We won’t be at Children’s this time, but that’s okay.  I have a good friend who works in day surgery recovery on occasion.  We’ve already been in touch with her to see if she can schedule herself to work there that particular day.  Ryan will be much less distressed if he wakes up to Ann taking care of him.

Always an adventure, isn’t it?  :)
