Surgery

We just had another visit to the ENT, and Brad has earned himself a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, and ear tubes. Brad was on antibiotics for three weeks, and the ENT said he didn't think they would help, but he had to try before going for the surgery. Brad's tonsils are just huge--you can see them when he talks!

The doctor pretty much promised the sun, moon, and stars: that Brad's snoring would go away, his sleeping would be better, his hearing would improve, and possibly even his behavior (could be a result of fitful sleeping, but we'll see...). We haven't scheduled the surgery yet, but it will probably be around May 15th--I don't want him to have the surgery before his next visit with the neurosurgeon, which is on May 13th. I'll keep you all posted!
