Our little patient

It's surgery and recovery time
Lia had her tonsils and adenoids out last Thursday. 

We are on 5 days post op 

I cannot believe the parents that said 
"Oh it's so easy when they are young" 
Um... Nope it's not! Every 3 hours we are giving some type of medicine and there are tears. It may be easier than if your older but it's far from easy. 

I cannot believe the parents that said "My little one ate fries and nuggets during recovery" 
Um...Nope! We are lucky if Lia wants to swallow let alone eat. 

Lia is on a steady diet of; 
Ice Cream - peach 
Noodle soup 
Ice cubes 
Ice Cream - peach 
You get the idea! 

Having your tonsils out is hard. 

Let's recap the last 5 days with pictures;

Because having your tonsils out is hard 


  1. Poor kid! I remember the misery of having my tonsils out; I feel her pain. Hope she's well on the mend and back to her normal self very soon.

    BTW, ever hear Bill Cosby's routine about having his tonsils out? Spot on.

  2. wow what a beautiful hospital! It is interesting to see the smile go from up to okay to down to up. Poor Lia. I hope she is feeling much better now.
