Maxwell's surgery was a success, but the first 24 hours of recovery has definitely been a challenge.
The amazing surgeon, Dr. Sie, was able to complete all four tasks: removal of tonsils and adenoids; insertion of ear tubes; nasal dilation; and partial reconstruction of the right ear.
With all that work, Max certainly has every right to be upset. And oh boy was he! Despite the drugs, he was so uncomfortable...and it just broke my heart. He kept all the nurses and doctors on his toes by turning blue multiple times. His nurse called a code on him and the whole crew rushed in. Fortunately I was right there and was able to explain this is Max's "norm." But with everyone wanting to work on him, he got even more upset. Needless to say, they kept all the emergency supplies out and ready to go.
Oh my lil' man certainly knows how to make everything exciting!
