After spending time and money on Sofia's reoccurring Sinus Infections, we decided to have her checked with an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) Specialist who checked her Adenoid and his own hearing after he declared that Sofia is a good candidate for the next Scream movie because of her high pitch scream when he inserted a very small camera tube from her nose to check her Adenoids. Dr. ENT declared her Adenoid gland was swollen and full of mucus, not a good sign because this certain gland needs to be free of mucus. So the parental decision was made and we decided that Sofia needed surgery to have her Adenoid gland removed.
at 9:05 this morning, Dr. ENT came to us and said surgery was a success and we could see our little screamer soon. However, waking up after surgery is never a pleasant experience. We were led to the waiting area where all small kids were taken after surgery and there was no child in that room that wasn't crying. John called it the "Wailing Room." The nurse laughed.
Sofia ate three Popsicles and dran an entire glass of apple juice and at 10:30am we were heading home.
Thank God everything went smoothly and Sofia came home ate her lunch and began to behave like her normal 3 year old self. God willing this will allow us to control her allergies better and this will definitely allow her to sleep better and not snore so loud.
I'm just glad this is over and I can start to relax again.
