Well, yesterday was the big day!! We got up at 5am, and made it to the Avenue's Surgical Center by 6. I was glad it was so early, we could get it over with! We had to wait for a bit, and it made us all a little antsy, but then the nurse gave Cannon some "silly medicine". Boy, did it work!! He kept making peace signs and trying to grab something that wasn't there. He was so out of it, it was funny. He was so looped up that he didn't even care when they came to take him to the O.R. in a little wagon. He just said, "bye!" That was at 7:30am. The surgery was done by 8. Pretty quick!! His tonsils were so big, they had to cut one in half to get it out!! (sorry for the graphic pic!)
I think he is more beat up from after the surgery though. He has some bruises and scratches, and he was so agitated, he RIPPED out his IV! The nurse said, "This is your child on drugs." Scary. I hope we never have to see that again. I'm glad he doesn't remember it.
I was surprised to see how well he ate yesterday, even with a sore throat. He ate some soup broth and THREE pieces of bread! I have never seen that before. Those tonsils must have been a major blockage.
He will take his antibiotic, but not his pain medicine. Weird. My cute neighbor Susan even took it back to the pharmacy for us to have more flavor added, and he still won't take it. He's a little more stubborn today. I can tell he hurts because he won't even eat ice cream! So he's taking lots of baths and I'm trying to be extra patient. My mom is here to help us both!
Thanks everyone for all the well wishes! Love to you all!!
