Tonsils, Adenoids, and Tubes

When Daegan does something, especially in the medical field, he usually goes all the way.  He had his tonsils and adenoids out and we were going to see what his ears looked like before surgery (two weeks after our appt).  They were still full of fluid, so Dr. decided to put tubes in as well. 

Here he is enjoying cable tv and totally in charge of the remote!
After surgery they granted my wishes of keeping him on oxygen for awhile.  He was glad to finally get rid of it, but they monitored his oxygen until we left.  Dr. said he had very large tonsils and adenoids (larger than most adults) so I hope this will all help him feel better and not be so prone to sickness - I think he missed more than 25 days of school each year for the past three years. 

Here he is playing on my iPhone while recovering.
He rode a wheelchair to the car, but tried to absent-mindedly get up a few times when the poor nurse stopped.  Then, on the way home, he threw up in the car.  He seemed better after that and still wanted to get a milk shake at McDonalds.  He has been sitting here playing Xbox since we got home around 3:00.
Surgery Recovery=Lots of Screen Time!

We didn't meet one person today at the hospital that wasn't pleasant and extremely helpful.  And it was nice to get a personal call from Dr. Barnes tonight to check on the patient!  :)

  1. XBOX? are you kidding?
    my kids were LAID OUT in my bed for 2 days. (emphasis on MY bed!) but we did make the mistake of doing a few at a time. (not good) Best of luck there, little dude :)
