So the surgery was fast and went well. Kaidence is not feeling too great and was not happy afterwards. She is pretty sick to her tummy and keeps pointing to her mouth while crying. She is obsessed as always with her her oxygen bag. She refuses to let anyone take it from her. It was her favorite toy in the hospital while waiting for her heart. She has had many visitors of doctors, techs and nurses. It is like a great big family reunion.

The doctor said that K's adenoids were 80% obstructive and that they were much bigger than her tonsils. We are really hoping that this will be the key to getting her off her o2 at night.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Shauny I'm so glad everything went well. We love you all and even though things are good we'll keep her in our prayers. Keep us posted and don't hesitate to ask if you need anything. -Paula

Such great news. We have to take Collin to have the "little big-boy surgery" in October/November and it is funny because people are like "why would you make your little one go through that, and put them at risk for complications with having to be put out for something that is only cosmetic? I just laughed. Yeah, that will me a much easier go around. No waiting hours upon hours, something quick and easy. She will be in our prayers (not sure she has ever not been!)
