Well, we're home and tonsil/adenoid free. The doc said Austin's tonsils were like golf balls. So there you go. He did pretty well before hand, until he got bored with playing with the hospital bed. Thankfully, not too long after that they came in with the liquid sedative.
They said the surgery would take 45 minutes and it did, pretty much to the second. It was the waking up that was hard for him. He fought and cried and cranked and ripped the IV out of his arm. And we sat and rocked in the chair and got him to drink water and they sent us home.
He was still pretty miserable at home until grandma (my mom) showed up with the yellow jello. (that's fun to say. Try it. Yellow jello. Yel-low jel-lo.) He was happy to see grandma and finally eat something (he didn't care for the popsicles we had, too cold). Then he watched DVDs until he dozed off on the couch. Every once in a while he'll sit up like a shot and whine and hold his throat. We kiss him and smooth him and he lays back down and falls back to sleep.
