Tonsillectomy Update

Recovering with a "Mini Melt" Popsicle

This is short and sweet because we're all tired. The tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy/PE tube placement went exceptionally well, Nolan had a completely uneventful night in the PICU, and we are home. He's eating popsicles and is doing amazingly well when we keep up on the Tylenol with Codeine. So far, this has been much, much easier than I expected it to be!

A more detailed update to follow.

Hooray! I'm so glad to hear everything went well and there have been no complications with the codeine. It's nice to finally have something go better than planned. :) Here's hoping the recovery goes just as well!

Great news that you're all home and recovering nicely! I hope everything continues smoothly and that you get good results from the surgery.

Glad to hear that everything went well. Nolan looks pretty comfy on the couch and popsicles somehow make everything better for kids (just like chocolate makes everything better--or sort of better--for moms).
