My poor baby, simply went in for new tubes in his ears and remove his adenoids that had grown back. While I was waiting, I was asked to sign a consent for a tonsilectomy also. Bless his heart, he just had tonsils and adenoids out Dec 2007, and now, in the OR, it's discovered that they have grown back. I consented. 15 minutes in the recovery room, he was rushed to the OR again for an arterial bleeder. The second time took much longer than the first time, needless to say, I was scared to death. They cauterized and suctioned all the blood out of his stomach. When I got to him, they were battling his blood pressure. Apparantly is was very elevated and concerning to them, he was admitted. The second day, throat much better, blood pressure still a bit elevated but much more controlled when suddenly, he had an allergic reaction to God knows what. More meds :( Took him home last night and he woke up this morning covered in hives. Benadryl cleared it up, but it didn't do much for my heartattack :)
I'm sad to say, thoughout this 3 day ordeal, I've managed to put on about 6 pounds. Yes, I'm an emotional eater. I'm hoping that most of it is water weight from eating chips and other garbage from the machines. I plan to work very hard this weekend to get rid of it. I've really disappointed myself as I thought I was, by now, much stronger than that. Apparantly not.
Thank you all for all your love, support and prayers for my son.
Love and Hugs,
