I remember when kids were able to take their tonsils to school for show and tell, in a jar! Never had mine out, but I was so envious of those who did.

That would have been nifty. I never had mine out either.

Aww, I am glad Osher came through it so well. What a trooper!

My younger nephew had real problems with his tonsils and ear infections when he was four. This was about 30 years ago and they were putting tubes in kid's ears for drainage. The surgeon did the two procedures at the same time.

His older brother (all of about 6 at the time) proudly told anyone who would listen that his brother had his tonsils taken out through his ears!

I was five. I remember unlimited Popsicles!

I was five as well. All I remember was that I got lots of ice cream and missed the first few days of Grade 1!

When they gave him the sleepy red stuff did he get all loopy n goofy? DD did, it was a real giggle for us to watch.
On a serious note, you will notice that he will grow faster now, as growth hormones are released during REM sleep in children.

He got gas so he was out in about 2 seconds. He was pretty loopy when he woke though.

Thanks Vitauta. You are too sweet.

Thanks for the belly-laugh, Laurie! Oh my! I'm still losing it! "Through his ears!"

I love kids. They always have something to say that will make me laugh!
