He's not really nervous about the surgery at all. I, on the other hand am slightly freaking out. For one, it's kind of bad timing. I know it's a good idea to do this over spring break to minimize the number of absences from school, but, what was I thinking? That also means, Michael and Molly will be home from school. I'm worried about how Sam will be able to rest, and heal, with those two running around. Luckily, my mom is coming to help me, and will at least keep Ben occupied. I may have to bribe the other two. Second of all, it worries me that Sam is such a picky eater. And the vast majority of what he does eat is crunchy. So the soft food diet for two weeks, is going to be challenging. He'll be eating lots of yogurt, ice cream, popsicles, bananas and pancakes, I have a feeling. Any other ideas? Please share! I'm really sweating this. And finally, NEVER, I repeat, NEVER google tonsillectomy in 7 year old. You don't want to read the horror stories. I'm probably not going to sleep until he's at least two weeks post op.
So, in conclusion, for those who do, please say a prayer for Sam and our family, that the surgery goes well, there are no complications, and the recovery is quick and as painless as possible. I'll update when I can.
