Nolan's tonsillectomy recovery seems to be complete, and we are all grateful! He slept at night with no pain medication, only waking once to come into our bed. There was some fussing, but he fell asleep in a few minutes. He did wake up fussy, so I gave him some Tylenol with Codeine this morning.
He's been doing great today, and it appears we are past the worst. For Nolan, days 3, 6, and 7 were the worst, particularly at night. Last night's restful slumber indicates he is on the mend, and he has been playing rather nicely today.
I am so glad to bring this little chapter to a close!
