New Tubes and Out with the Adenoids!

Happy Belated Birthday, Janet!

Seth's ENT doctor had a cancellation this week for surgery so we were worked in for today. Surgery is never easy and it wasn't necessarily easier this time--it was just that we knew kind of what to expect. They did give Seth a drug before they took him back that made him seem as high as a kite. He just got this big grin on his face and he started laughing at Rob and then he would look at me. Then he lost all agility and was totally dependent on us. The nurse that came and got him said she would put him in the wagon (they use these to take little kids for a ride back to the OR) but she was scared he would topple over. It made an uneasy situation a little lighter--he didn't put up a fuss when he left us. His surgery was successful and the doctor seemed supportive in the decision to remove his adenoids. Seth was a mad somebody when he woke up and found that IV in his arm. He didn't want anything sticking in him like that. He tried to rip it out several times and would get even madder when we held his hand away. He really started to wake up on the way home, requesting "Hot Potato" pointing out all the American flags. It was an emotionally and physically tiring day that I hope will pay off in the future.
