Ron is going under the knife tomorrow

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Wish us luck - the adenoids and maybe tonsils as well are finally going out tomorrow. I am soooo scared - I hope I'm not making him too nervous.

As if the stress wasn't enough - in the papers today they said that one of the workers at the hospital where we'll be going to is suspected of having killed 4 patients! They didn't say why as it's still under investigation, but hinted that is was an Arab staff member who might have done it as some sort of terror attack I don't know whether to be happy they actually caught him or what

I don't have a lot of time to hang here now - gotta get everything ready for tomorrow. If anyone needs anything concerning the forums, please contact either hissy or Deb25.

Sending you mega thoughts, vibes and prayers your way!

From what I've heard all about the procedure little Ron will be going through, it's a lot easier on them now then it used to be when I was a kid. One of my friends son had this done last year and she said he was a bubbly little guy within a couple days. Regardless, it's still really tough to see them go through all of that but in the long run he'll be so much better after it's all said and done. Good luck Sweetie & give Ron some hugs from me!

I will lift you all up in prayers that all will go well tomorrow

Kids are lot more resilient, than people give them credit for. I presume that you are allowed to stay with him, while he's in the hospital. Most hospitals in the US allow parent(s) to stay with their children.

Just have a good supply of ice cream and ice chips, for afterward. Enjoy the few days, that he's down. Its probably the only break that you'll get, for years

Hi Anne I hope all goes well for little Ron. I had my tonsils and adenoids out when I was 7 or 8 and from what I remember, it wasn't bad at all. And all of the ice cream definitely helped. I'll be keeping Ron in my thoughts.

Anne, you and Ron will be in my thoughts. I am sure everything will be allright, but I really understand your worries. It´s like we get an even softer side by becomming a mum, I would be so worried for my son too, even though I know I woulnt have to. My sister had this op. a few years ago, and had very quick recovery.

((((((Good luck!))))))))

Lotsa good vibes headed your way Anne. Hope all goes well for Ron. No reason to expect otherwise, but there's no "off" button for a Mum's worry. Take care.

We're back!!!
Phew - what a day!
Ron ended up having only his adenoids taken out. The doctor said the adenoids were so large, he thinks they have been solely responsible for the obstruction - so he didn't touch the tonsils themselves.
Ron was very brave. He had nothing to eat or drink since last night and I was sure that that in itself would make him cranky in the morning. But he handled being in the hospital very well and was in high spirits the whole morning. He was smiling up to the point when they actually put the mask with the anasthetic over his face - then he panicked and cried it took a couple of minutes (might have been shorter but seemes longer to me) for him to go under. The operation itself took about 15 minutes. I was with him up to the point when he was anasthesizes - then we waited for him outside. He took a while to wake up. First half an hour he was confused and crying. Then he fell asleep for 2 hours. Then woke up feeling slightly better and had his first ice cream

He is very sleepy. He fell asleep in the car on the way back home and he's in bed right now.

Thank you everyone for your good vibes, thoughts and prayers! They are much appreciated! I was thinking about you guys while I was waiting for him to wake up - and it helped a lot.

I'm attaching a few pics from today. The first two are from before the procedure - you can see what a good mood he was in. The third is an "after" picture

Awww I just want to cuddle Ron and put a smile back on his cute face.

I am glad that it went well. I didn't know that the procedure only takes 15 mins and that you can be home the same day - the wonders of technology!

What a brave little boy you have there, and a little cutie at that!
