Surgery Update

Jacob had his surgery this morning. Of course the doctor was running late so we had to wait longer than we had hoped but that seems about typical. The surgery went very well and only took about 15 minutes. Then they had us come back to be with him while he came around. He was really out of it and confused but he came around. Once we got home he rested for a bit and then decided he wanted to eat. After he had food in his system he was back to himself. By 11:30 am he was playing and laughing. Now he is taking his afternoon nap. The doctor said that his adenoids were huge. So hopefully once the swelling goes down from the surgery he will be able to breathe better. We are just glad that it went well and he seems like he will be better for it.

Well Jacob is finally scheduled to have his adenoids removed. Hopefully that will help all this congestion he has been dealing with his whole life. The surgery is scheduled for Feb. 25. Yup next week. Unfortunately he has been home sick this whole week. I am hoping to take him back to daycare tomorrow. As of now the surgery is still on. But he has an appointment with his pediatrician on Monday just to make sure he is good to go. He pretty much has a bad cold. But then Kyle took him to the Dr. yesterday and he has a mild double ear infection. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick it and we can proceed. If not, then we will postpone. Gotta do whatever is safest for him.
