Post Tonsilectomy

 
Some of the photos were so awful - I just had to use a diagram

After four bouts of tonsilitis and anti-biotics within two months, followed by two years of similar, my exhausted son and his wife consented to have Dylan's tonsils and (huge) adenoids out at the tender age of 2 1/2.  Everyone assured them it would be the answer to their sleepless nights: Dylan has not slept through since birth.  Two weeks after the op - not much change - parents despairing still, Dylan waking up even more than usual.  After four weeks: a miraculous reversal: Dylan sleeping right through the night, every night, until 6.00 a.m. The parents are changed people - bags under their eyes have disappeared, constant complaints about sleepless nights are a thing of the past. The only one who is not ecstatic is - Dylan.  Big son says he storms angrily into their bedroom every morning demanding to know why he is waking up in his own bed instead of theirs and what on earth has happened to his middle-of-the-night bottle?

  2. Those parents left to their own devices with a now sleeping child, may just whip you up another grand child.
