Sweet baby

My mom sent me this picture of Cheese Puff last night. He looks like such a big boy, despite the footie pajamas.

He is going to have to have surgery on his tonsils. The whole breathing at night issue had the doctor worried, and then he looked at them. They're huge. His surgery's next week. He doesn't really know. I also haven't told his brothers. I'm never quite sure how Little Elvis will react to anything.

I'm worried. That's my nature. Bob will be with us. He's not the worrier that I am. I've talked to another mother who had her baby get his tonsils removed. She said it was hard on both of them, but definitely worth it. Bob talked to a student who had the surgery when she was older. She said it made such a difference in her life. And then we hear his breathing at night. Some mornings he wakes up after what should be a good night's sleep with little dark circles.

Poor sweet baby. He is the sweetest little thing. He really is. His teachers love him, as do his Sunday school teachers. He is loving and silly. His new favorite thing to do is "smooch." He'll kiss my cheeks, three times, saying "smooch" with each kiss.

He still sings all of the time. We downloaded "Turn Down for What" for Little Elvis this weekend, and Cheese Puff started singing along with it immediately. (It's an easy song to figure out.) He sings "All About that Bass" and "Jingle Bells" all the time. He doesn't need the radio for prompting.

The doctor said he may have to relearn how to talk some, just because he'll be going from no room in the back of his throat, to room. I hope he's still able to sing.

We've been stocking up on liquids for him.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about the surgery. Although, I do think it will be much, much better for Cheese Puff. I had my tonsils and adenoids out in about 3rd grade. The adenoids were because I was breathing so poorly at night. (So, sounds similar to Cheese Puff.) It was rough. (But childbirth is worse!)

Before the surgery I had asthma and recurrent strep. After the surgery, gone/never again. I really believe it was a significant improvement to my quality of life. Hopefully the same for Cheese Puff!

tell him- after the surgery you will have to eat lots of ice cream cause your throat will be sore for a while. worked for me. Had mine out at around 10 and had far less sore throat type problems. It's an easy operation with little risk. Grandpa Stew
