WW: Recovery

Well we have been without internet, so I haven't blogged. It is too hard from my phone so I just put it off. Today was Joe Braden's surgery! He had to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. He went back at 7:00 and the Doctor came out of surgery at 7:17! It is just amazing how fast it all was. He had a really hard time in recovery though! He couldn't get comfortable and was fighting sleep. He cried and cried for his "Mama" so they finally decided that they better get us to see if that would help. Typically they don't let the parents back until phase 2 but we were able to calm him down. We found out that he has a high tolerance to pain meds, and it takes A LOT to work on him! Thankfully he also has a high pain tolerance! Here are some pictures of him recovering!

Poor baby! My middle daughter went through that a few years ago and it was not fun!

Hope he feels better soon!

Poor little guy!

I had my tonsils when I was 20..lol and my throat was so white and tender for the first couple of days!

At least now, you'll never have to worry about his tonsils ever flaring up!

Poor little guy! Hope he starts feeling better real soon. I'm sure you'll be taking real good care of him. Lots of jello and ice cream, right?

Happy WW!
