... and she's doing GREAT. She's drinking lots of apple juice, has been eating apple sauce and yogurt and is sitting up playing with me on the couch.
When your little one got their tonsils out, when did you let them start eating regular foods? She just had her surgery this morning, so obviously today and tomorrow for sure she'll just have brothy chicken noodle soup and other smooth foods, but she's doing SO much better than I anticipated.
If she continues to do well, do you think she'll be good with spaghetti-o's come Saturday? When does she get cereal again? I'm planning to keep her home from preschool for a week, but she already seems like her old self, so I don't know when she's actually well enough for regular food. Just wondering about your personal experiences, thanks!
Remember there is a certain honeymoon period after surgery. She may feel much worse in about 2-3 days. Right now things can still be numb. Definitely keep sticking with the soft foods and just take it from there. She will let you know how things are feeling in a few days and then you can adjust her diet accordingly.
I hope she continues to heal nicely !!! I had my tonstils out at age 15 after they were severly infected so things were much worse for me recovery wise.
