It has been a while since Charlie has gone into the OR for an actual surgery. The first picture is before his first surgery. I remember pretending like I knew it was all going to be okay. But come on, Heart Surgery! No one really knows that everything will be just fine. I think the subsequent trips to the OR actually were a little easier, because it was essentially once a week, or every other week for about 7 months, so it really did seem like a routine doctor’s visit.
Well it has been nearly four years, since the last big surgery, but tomorrow he’s back in the OR. It is time for Charlie to get his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in, a scope of the reconstructed airway (make sure it’s growing with him) and a CAT scan of his heart. I find myself back in the “it’s all okay camp”, but still a bit concerned. Charlie likes to silent aspirate and they say there is the potential for bleeding after this procedure, so it is a bit of a concern. The plus side is, we have a great surgeon Dr. Black, who was trained by (in my opinion) the best surgeon in the ENT world, Dr. D! .
