ENT Visit Today

Today, Caleb went to see a new ENT, Dr. McDuffie, in Frisco, just up the road from our house. This visit came because our nurse practitioner saw him last Monday and noticed that his tonsils were really big. Dr. McDuffie said that they are still quite large and based on the fact that he does have variable apnea and snores while sleeping, we will be having his tonsils and his adenoids out. I have known for quite a long time that Caleb needed this done, but we had to wait until he was of age and we found a good ENT. We don't know when we will have the surgery, but it will need to be soon as he will need to spend the night and someone will need to be with him while he is in the hospital. That someone will be me as I know that Jes would not be comfortable doing that by himself (he's very capable, by the way, but has always deferred to me when it comes to anything medical or health related). Anyway, the long and short of it is that we have to have this done before I have this baby, so hopefully before the end of the month.
This is not the first time by any means that Caleb has undergone anesthesia, however we are all a little nervous about him having this procedure. We know, however, that he needs this badly and will do very well!
