Hanging in There


Nolan continues to recover and is doing amazingly well. He has played outside a couple of times for brief periods of time and is playing as if he didn't have major surgery this week! He is extremely cranky and can't swallow when the Tylenol with Codeine wears off, so we have maintained the pain medication. We have a post-op appointment with his ENT tomorrow afternoon, and will adjust his medication types/levels after that appointment, if she thinks he would do better on regular Tylenol.

Tonight is the last dose of his oral steroid (to prevent swelling in his airway), and he'll be finished with the antibiotic soon, too. We will be very happy to get back to his regular medications (Zantac and Nexium).

We are looking forward to Christmas and all of the festivities in this coming week, so updates might be a bit scarce as we get closer to the holidays!

Leah,

that's all good news! (And, if I remember right, when I had my tonsils out - a much more minor surgery - I was on pain meds for a good 10 days.)

Merry Christmas!
