Surgery Update

Noah's fine. He got an IV, but when they tried to put the tube down his throat, it wouldn't go. So they had to stop before they got started. We now have to schedule a CT of his trachea (4 phone calls so far and still not done). Ugh. It could be something very simple where all they have to do is use a little balloon type thing to intubate him, or it could be something with his airway that will need correcting like his adenoids do.

Not fun. He has to be sedated for the x-ray. Then we do the follow up with the ENT doc again, then schedule whatever surgery will be necessary. So several more weeks before we're done. At least we know he does ok with anesthesia.

Yikes! That sounds so scary. Hope everything goes well.

Thanks! The doc says it's probably nothing serious. And his adenoid problem isn't serious. It's just the poor boy has to go through more procedures and he's definitely a "don't mess with me" kinda boy.
