{Braeden Post Surgery}

Thursday, September 23, 2010
Just wanted to give everyone an update on how my sweet boy is doing after his surgery. If you didn't know, Braeden had surgery to remove his tonsils and his adnoids. He has had a terrible time breathing, eating & with sleep apnea ... so this is a much needed surgery.

Before you make these rash decisions, it's almost like you downplay if they even need the surgery at all, but after ... no hesitation. I would have made the same decisions 20x over.

The surgery took about 2 hours. Braeden was pretty out of it for the first couple of hours, but we were able to be back with him while he started to wake up. Get this ... the doctor came back and told us that Braeden has the LARGEST adnoids and tonsils he has EVER seen! And this guy has been doing this for a long time. WOW, so, that right there told me we made the right decision.

About 4 hours later you wouldn't have known that Braeden had surgery. We were trying to keep him calm, but that boy was all over the place. You could just tell that he felt SO much better. I will never forget the first time he was able to breath out of his nose. He can smell now, he eats for me (A HUGE STRUGGLE BEFORE.) But now I know it was because it hurt and he couldn't taste anything. Poor guy! But I am proud to say he is gaining some weight back, eating like a regular 3 year old, and overall is a much happier boy. I couldn't be happier!

Here is Braeden after surgery. You can tell his little brother wanted in on some action :) Ryan's mom brought over a huge bean bag for the boys to crash on ... they love it!
