my 2yr old goes for surgery on Wednesday

 So my 2yr old son goes in Wednesday morning to have his adenoids and tonsils shaved down. I was fine when we first scheduled the surgery because I know he needs it done, but now that we are only two days away I am freaking out! I don't know the difference between shaving down and removing, all the Dr really said was it is safer and a quicker heal time. I'm not exactly sure how all of this is going to work or how he will feel after. I am scared he will be in so much pain and I won't know how to make it better.

Has anyone else's kids had this done? What did u do for them? What kinds of food did they eat during recovery? Any other advice or input is greatly appreciated as well.

wish i could help, hope it all goes well and he has a quick recovery!!! heres a bump for ya







Our twin identical boys were born August 24, 2009. Leeland Matthew was born at 6:54pm weighing 1lb, 6 oz. He fought for his life for 5 hours, but was too little to keep fighting. He passed away at 11:59pm the same night he was born. Landyn was born at 6:55pm weighing 1lb 11oz. He is fighting for his life in the NICU. He is a strong little baby and is doing very well.







This picture was taken by the NICU staff after Leeland passed away. Leeland is in the back and Landyn in the front.

I wish I could help you out some, but I honestly don't know. I will send many wishes your DS's way. I'm sure he will be just fine though!

My DD had her adenoids removed at 11 months.  She also had ear tubes inserted.  She couldnt' have her tonsils done because she was too young.  It was supposed to be outpatient but we ended up staying the night because she had a reaction to the anesthesia.  I was more comfortable staying the night!
