Yesterday, two of my kiddos got their tonsils out. What a day!
My son has had the hardest time with recovering. He is just in a lot more pain or seems to be. I joked with Hubby that it's because he's a guy and just can't handle the pain as well as our daughter. :)
My son has basically stopped speaking. He is afraid it will hurt, and maybe it does, but he won't even try to speak. He does hand signals and a lot of pointing.
Poor kids, it wasn't easy and the next few days will still be sore, but it's worth it for them. They won't gasp for breath at night, they will be able to swallow foods better and the doctor told me they will have more energy because they will be getting good night sleeps. I also hope this helps with the colds they seem to have constantly. My daughter was sick with a cold from September to May.
I'm so glad it's over with.
