Praise God everything went smoothly with Elijah getting his adenoids out. He did not cry once, not even coming out of anesthesia like kids normally do. Amazing! And, he got a special transformer toy, or I should say toys. It was a set of 5 mini transformers. He was THRILLED. His face lit up like Christmas and he didn't sleep at all for the rest of the day.
He was super cute getting ready to go in for the surgery too. He changed into his gown and then asked if he could lie down on the bed. He closed his eyes and pretended to be sleeping when the nurse walked in. He was being so silly and cute. Then he giggled his way back to the OR with the doctor who was really goofy.
We kept waiting for him to show sign that he was in pain, or needed to sleep, but it never happened. We had to keep telling him to stay calm.
On Saturday it was the same thing until the afternoon. Madelyn and I were leaving to go see The Nutcracker and a low fever kicked in and a little pain. Nothing a little tylenol, transformers, and a Scooby Doo video couldn't take care of.
So, that was that. I guess my advice to other parents about to go through this with their child would be to buy them a set of 5 mini transformers and you should be good to go.
