July 5th, 2009

Day 4 Post T&A removal - Carver seems to be doing a little better. He only woke up once last night, and was up for about 20-30 min. Then he woke up crying again around 7:00am. It seems like he wakes up as soon as his drugs wear off. I tried to feed him some carrots again for lunch. He took a couple of bites and then started crying. We'll keep trying at each meal until he is able to eat without any pain. His voice is starting to come back, so some of the swelling has to be going down. I moved his O2 down to 1/4 lt today - daytime only. He seems to be doing ok except when he cries. Whenever he cries, he turns purple and sats in the 70's.

Kinnick is O2 free today - just during the day. So far, so good. We've been checking her sats and they've remained in the upper 90's. Now I need to sew bells to the back of her pants - I can't find her. She's all over the house. She's also decided that she doesn't need a probe on her foot and socks are just not necessary.

Hi Shannon,
Thanks for your post back on CI Circle regarding the adenoid removal. I'm a little nervous. Did you see that comment back regarding a risk of the speech being affected? Did you hear anything about that? Our ENT is doing the surgery, and his specialty is CIs, so I'm SURE he would've mentioned that....

I'm nervous....
