Update on Dominic
It went quickly and well, the doctor said that he had never seen adenoids as large as his, and the tonsils were some of the larger ones he'd seen. Dominic chose not to have the versed, because he said he felt calm enough. So, he walked right on into the surgery with the nurse.
He came out of post-op quickly, and perked up much sooner than we thought he would. He was able to eat half a popsicle and drink a cup of juice pretty easily while he watched Between the Lions on the hospital television. He was also able to breathe through his nose right away, which he hasn't been able to do since he was a baby. He has minimal pain, and we have pain medicine for him. His ears hurt a little when he swallows, but his throat doesn't hurt more than it does normally, he said. We'll what he says see when the medicine wears off.
When we got home, he even walked over to the table for lunch when his brothers went to lunch. They had sandwiches, he had mashed popsicle in a cup. He is looking forward to a dinner of broth and wild strawberry Jell-O.
Thank you for all your prayers.
