More Surgeries....

After several ear infections in past few months, Gavin was referred to the ENT (again) for possible tubes. Our visit with the ENT was today, and he'll definitely be getting tubes, along with a sinus irrigation and a partial adenoidectomy. He can't have a full adenoidectomy because he has a bifid uvula. But hopefully removing part of his adenoids will give him some relief! I haven't got a date for the surgery just yet, but the doctor said it will take a total of 20 minutes to do all three procedures and his pain shouldn't be as bad as his tonsillectomy. So, here's hoping that the surgery will be quick, relatively painless, and get him some major relief with the ear infections, runny nose, and cough!
