Daniel's surgery was today, so I thought I'd check in here with an update.
The procedure was scheduled for 1:00 but we didn't go back until 1:30 (it was a busy day on the ENT ward!). It took a little more than a half hour and did indeed include adenoid revision, which means they cleaned out adenoid tissue that grew back since the last time. The doc said he also cleaned out lots and lots of snot and goop from recent ear infections and a cold he's got. (When I told Daniel that on the way home he commented, "Well. That was handy.") He said Daniel has a rather oddly shaped palate, which explains why the adenoids have given him so much trouble in the first place. Thanks to an elaborate cocktail of anti-nausea drugs from the anesthesiologist, recovery was not nearly as, uh, dramatic as last time (except for the elevator ride down, I'm afraid), but it did take a while before Daniel was ready to come home, mostly because he was sleeping off a dose of Benadryl that was included in the mix. He's on the couch now watching TV and keeps asking for food. We're taking it easy, of course, but it's a good sign! So all in all things went well. The staff was wonderful and helpful, just like last time. I certainly hope this is the last surgery he has EVER!
