    Energy on the way. Now here is a little snippit of advice if you want it. As a pediatric nurse I have seen far too many kiddos spend more time than necessary in the hospital after this surgery for one simple reason. STRAWS!!! They are the enemy for the first couple of days. Sucking encourages bleeding and can make things unbearable. The kids swallow the excedss blood and then get nauseated and you can just imagine what vomiting does to that tender area. One toddler had to go back to surgery and even get blood because of active bleeding caused by the evil little spill proof sippy cups that they have to suck on.

    No Straws...did I drill that in good enough?

    Oh, most deffinatly no straws!!! No one at the hospital even mentioned anything like that to us!!! They say he will be out that afternoon, I am just hopping that he does not have my reaction to anesthesia (I dont like to wake up! I have told his docs about this too) The most I have been told so far, is too keep him off citrus poducts, because it will burn his throat, but that seemed kind of obvioius anyway! Why dont they say anything about the straws???



    Thank you all for the thoughts and energies, I will take all of them with me in the morning!!!!! (((((( All )))))

    Sometimes I dream that a big, giant squirrel is carrying me away. Does that make me a nut?

    Not sure, but we have gotten kids to the floor from recovery with straws given to them by the recovery nurses!!

    Just make sure he does drink as much as possible because they can get dehydrated real quick. That is one of the things that will result in a night in the hospital. Of course if he is slow to wake up he may spend the night anyway. Ask them to give him the oral pain med as soon as possible. Usually it is liquid Lortab and if they start off swallowing that it may make drinking easier. A lot of times the try to drink without any pain med and it hurts so they wont even touch the pain med.

    Good luck. We will be thinking of you both!

    Universal energy and warm hugs to you both....I am sure he will pull thru just fine.

    Semele thank you for that information... I will remember it as my grandkids have been getting "threatened" with this surgery.
