Daughter Update 1-23-09

Friday, January 23, 2009

My 3 1/2 year old did SUPER with the CT Scan today. The tech at the hospital was amazing! She suggested and let my daughter do a CT of her My Little Pony first - got to push the buttons and all, then let her pony sit on her tummy to watch my daughter do her scan, and told her a story the entire time. I was beyond impressed with the tech!

The pediatrician's office called me back by 11am to say they wanted her to see an ENT before the weekend, so I requested a doctor I've seen once before. The doctor was great. My daughter's sinuses are almost entirely swollen and full of gunk, with almost no air pockets, her left ear is very infected, her adenoids are so swollen that the ENT was surprised she can even breathe, and her tonsils are huge (which I already knew but nobody cared about until today). It was cool to see the CT scan results.

She's going to have her adenoids and tonsils out, as well as tubes in on Feb. 5th. They're also going to clean out her sinuses and ears while they're doing the procedure. She'll have to rest for 3 days after the surgery and then stay home and play lightly (ha!) for the next week or so after. This for my child who could live in a padded room to bounce off the walls...

Anyway, that's how it went and what the plans are. Thanks for the kind words, prayers, and advice!

    So glad she did well and the cause of her problems were revealed. My daughter is an adult now but she had that surgery when she was 2 1/2 and her quality of life qreatly improved after she recovered.

    Blessings and prayers!

    Wow, what a super tech!

    I'm glad you have a plan of action now. I pray the surgery will go well, that your daughter will recover quickly, and that this really will take care of the problem!
