We have a date...

So we have a date set to have Trent's adenoids and tonsils taken out! August 25th will be the big day, with a pre-op appointment the day before. For those of you who haven't been following, this surgery is to eliminate sleep obstruction (or sleep apnea) due to his huge tonsils and adenoids.

Trent does not know what he has in store for him.... although we have talked about tonsils briefly, it wasn't a conversation that made an impact or sunk in at all. I obviously didn't go into detail or tell him he was having surgery in a hospital. (TMI for a 3 year old!) I think he'll start to realize something is happening once we go to the pre-op appointment.

I realize that this type of surgery happens all the time and that the recovery will be fairly quick. However, it is never easy to see your little boy go through it!

Please pray for Trent and for the doctors involved with the surgery. Pray that the surgery goes well, and that Trent reaps all the benefits of having the tonsils removed. Specifically we are hoping for changes involving better sleep at night, correction of a cross-bite, more clarity in his speech, and a greater level of alertness throughout the day.
