Even though it is a little too small, Spencer wore his lucky shirt to the procedure:
|His shirt says, " Go Ahead And Push Me Around But You Ought To Know I've Got the Meanest, Baddest NANA in town!"|
In less than 30 minutes, Spencer was in recovery. He had an airway apparatus in his mouth because they said he snored like a freight train during the procedure. For a slim kid without adenoids that little guy can snore!
He looked so small and helpless. I wanted to hold him.....but NO ONE could get near his hospital bed. Nana and Boppa set up like protective gargoyles-haha!
After the recovery time passed, the nurse gave us permission to try to wake him. Whew! That took a while. Poor little man was sleepy, confused, frustrated and his nose was itching like crazy--but with the sensor tube in place he couldn't scratch it. We were all trying to help him!
After x-rays, Spencer came home with the sensor tube in place. The tube was uncomfortable and he was miserable. He had trouble eating and it wore a blister on his nose where it rubbed. He was more than ready to return to the hospital the next day to have it removed.
