My little boy had his tonsils out today

My son had to have surgery today to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. He had been having a lot of trouble breathing at night because his tonsils were so large. This morning he woke up so excited about his surgery that you would have though he was going to Disney World. He was a champ through the whole surgery which took all of 10 minutes. We could not believe how fast they do it now. They had warned us that when the kids wake up they often wake up crying. Osher was silent. He did not cry once. He was such a tough little man. I was so proud of him today!

Right now he is resting comfortably and taking advantage of the unlimited freeze pop, jello, ice cream, and other soft yummy treats policy that has been temporarily put in place. His sister has not been shy in taking advantage of it as well

Hugs for Osher. A good kid and he's sitting still...

Oh, what a sweetie! Such a brave little guy! So glad everything worked out well, GB.

As we left he asked if his tonsils are out. We told him that yes they were gone. His response was "That was fun"

Imagine how he'll react when you take him to Disney World!

I'm glad Osher has gotten that behind him. It looks like he is enjoying those Popsicles!

Bless his little heart!

I had mine out when I was 19 years old and I'd rather have another hysterectomy than go through that again. There was a little boy who had his out the same day and he was running up and down the hospital hall way that night having a big time. Kids !!!
