Surgery for Aaron

Since Aaron had tubes put in his ears his tonsils have gotten bigger and bigger and his snoring has gotten louder and louder (I don't know if there's a correlation between tubes and tonsils, but I would like to think so.) Apparently they rate how big your tonsils are by numbers 1-4, 4 being the biggest. Now, kids tonsils peak at age 5. Aaron is 3 1/2 and his tonsils are already rated a 3+. I told the doctor all the symptoms that he has been having, like restless sleeping, coming into our room 2-3 times a night, snoring, overly tired during the day and also apnea thing too. I guess all those things are considered sleep apnea, especially the stopping breathing thing (obviously.) What I didn't know was that bed wetting was a symptom too. Aaron has only had like 3 accidents since he was potty trained so I didn't think he had that problem. Getting to my point........ The doc took one look in his month and said when can we do surgery. He is getting his tonsils and adenoids out May 23rd. I am really nervous about this I don't really know why. I know it's a really simple procedure, but I am just worried. So please keep him ( and me too) in your prayers.

Good luck! It wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Connor was feeling good after a few days. I'll be thinking about ya!
