Trying to keep him entertained in the waiting room
His prize for the day was a nerf football from the hospital
His little gown was too cute!
He is definitely a daddy's little boy!
The surgery took all of 30 minutes and the doctor had nothing but good things to say about how everything went. He said that Connor's ears were filled with fluid the consistency of snot (gross I know). Every time Connor had an ear infection the fluid got thicker and thicker. Dr. K said that his hearing would definitely improve because with all that fluid he only heard muffled sounds. Dr. K also said that his adenoids were extremely large and it was best that they were removed.
Nothing is worse then not being able to take the pain of your child. I felt so bad for him when he was waking up from the anesthesia! He was in and out of sleep for the hour that we had to wait in recovery. When we were about to leave I was holding him and all of a sudden he threw up ALL over me. I ended up having to wear hospital scrubs home. (They tell you to pack extra clothes for the kids, but I think parents should also pack something extra!)
Right after the surgery
Connor pretty much slept all day and was back to his normal self that evening. He's been cranky for most the weekend and I think it is a mixture of the surgery and a back molar about to bust through. I do have to say that his hearing has greatly improved. When the dogs bark he freaks out and doesn't know what to do (same thing with the garbage disposal), none of that used to bother him before the surgery. However, he is a typical male because he has wonderful selective hearing!
