Tuesday

On Tuesday Robbie is going to have his Adenoids out and maybe his tonsils. They had me sign the release for the tonsils and will do them if they still look bad. I took him to the hospital for the Pre-op HOP....which is something they do for little patients. They tell them about their surgery and show them pictures, and give them a tour. They get a little hospital buddy and get to use doctor stuff. It was pretty awesome for him and he is actually excited for his surgery.

I am pretty nervous I don't know what to expect. I am sure it will all be just fine and no big deal but it is times like this I wish my mom was here.


oh and for the record book...Henry had his first haircut today. I just trimmed about an inch off of his mullet.

It is a little nerve-wracking to turn your child over for surgery! But it was the BEST thing we ever did with Addy. Night and day difference! Good luck. Daishan

everything will be fine, but I can understand your worry...I think it comes with parenting. :)

But you're right...it's times like these that you just want your mom.

It is a very emotional things to do, sending your child, or any loved one for that matter, into surgery. Just too many unknowns. It will be OK though and as a recent ( a year and a half) tonsil patient, I suggest that you would want the tonsils out. I had my adnoids out when I was little and suffered with the tonsils until I was 36 years old. Getting it all done at once makes it much better.

Anyway, that's my two cents. You'll do what's best I'm sure. What is his favorite flavor of ice cream or popsicles?

Thank you all for the comments, it really makes me feel better. Christy...I think I might try to talk the doctor into getting his tonsils out while they are in there too...so thanks for your input on that.

What kind of ice cream does the boy like...ALL kinds! That is what he is most excited about. :)
