09.11.2008 - Tonsils Out!

From Julian's COTA journal

Stacy is in with the kidney docs as I write this, having already visited with the ear/nose/throat docs earlier this a.m. The ENT docs want to remove Julian's tonsils right away. The tonsils are not inflamed - only enlarged - but such a condition may lead to other problems down the road (not the least of which is the fact that he can't breathe properly when he sleeps). So, tomorrow morning, Julian is having his tonsils removed.

Stacy and the docs are still working out logistics as far as when he'll be admitted, etc. Sometimes it's hard to procure a bed at Stanford Children's. We'll keep you posted as we're able. In the mean time, please pray with us that everyting goes well with tomorrow's surgery.

As far as his regular kidney appointment goes, Julian's labs look great and all other factors indicate that he's doing great. As the docs tell us, "boring." Just the way we like it.
