Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

So nervous for tomorrow

Ds goes in tomorrow to finally have his tonsils and adenoids removed. They are doing it in the hospital instead of out patient because he does poorly with being put under. I had to really convince dh we needed to do this because he doesn't want to. Six specialists over the past three years have recommended it for various problems he has. Most only have a low % chance of it helping but its something.

But since he has autism and his throat is a big sensory area for him I know recovery is gonna suck. He always forces him self to throw up an I am worried he will tear the scans and we will have at least one ER visit for bleeding. Plus how do you keep a regular 4 yo on bed rest let alone one you can't really explain the reasons to and hear out his frustrations on it.

Anyway, even though he has had several surges before I am getting worried the closer it comes. I keep having dreams he does in the OR and dh blames me for ever thinking it was a good idea and takes dd and leaves me. (Which he would do if that ever happened).

At least I am a prepare and stress for the absolute worst kinda person so when things go better then expected I am happy with the outcome. But I am slowly becoming a nervous wreck today. Good thoughts his way for tomorrow morning would be greatly appreciated!

my son had his out at about 2 years old. make sure they dont o/d him on the anastisia(sp) and dont let them rush you to go home.

also my sons dr. said let him eat what ever he asks for except spicy stuff. and make sure he stays hydrated

so if he will eat it or drink it let him have it

Positive thoughts, no worries allowed!  My son's speech improved a great deal after he had his surgery for adenoids.  We were successful with my son's favorite stories,favorite tv shows &  movies, and a new ds game that he got after surgery to help during the recovery.  You'll be surprised, kids can bounce back soo quickly.  Good Luck.  Only positive thoughts/vibes from here on out:)
