My boy had surgery today


Zander had his adenoids removed again today. He has had nothing but ear troubles for the last few years and so we finally figured out what the problem was...his adenoids had grown back and were blocking his eustachian tube and he had almost no clearance in his nose either. He had them out at 18mos but he had regrowth and scar tissue. He is doing well but will be out of school for the rest of the week. He was incredibly good for the IV insertion. I was prepared for a screaming fest but he didn't say a word or even really cry. I was sooo proud of him. We had the best nurses working on him. So if you don't see me around for a few you know why.
