Tonsils, tubes, adenoids are next.

Poor Elliot. On top of the flu, his tonsils are so swollen that we may be headed to the ENT this week as they seem to be obstructing his breathing (not good on top of the malacia). Doc pedi did a strep test. No strep. But, she did mention that he has fluid on his eardrum, his tonsils the size of mine and the adenoids need to go too. Damn. I thought that maybe…just maybe, we’d flee from all of that.

Wrong.

We will schedule after yet another trip to Children’s in Omaha to consult with yet another specialist. First, he must completely heal from the spinal surgery. Second, we must get through the school season as I simply cannot get Nora to and from school, dragging dear Elliot in a post-operative state with Sir Isaac to tend to as well. Third, I may be completely gray when it is all said and done. Just in time for my TWENTY-year high school reunion in June! La la la!

Awe Elliot...that is no fun at all. Hoping you are feeling better soon. Michelle, it is a difficult thing being a Momma, but you are doing such a wonderful job with your three precious ones!

Poor E and Poor Momma. I'm beginning to wonder about Aiden's tonsils, but I know the ENT doesn't want to touch that one either....
