Dylan's Tonsils Are Gone
Isn't he cute in his little surgery outfit?
The ENT told me after the operation that Dylan would likely see a great deal of benefit afterwards because not only were his tonsils so large they were nearly closing off his throat, his adenoid tissue had grown over his nasal septum - virtually occluding his airway there as well. Basically, the kid's lymphatic tissues were conspiring to suffocate him. Geez!
Ben laughs, but he doesn't know, he's probably next in line. I should pre-book his operation now!
