|After the Surgery|
|Sleeping it off!|
|What you can't hear is the silence of his breathing!|
So there I was, in the bed, listening to him struggling to breathe down the hall. I was waiting for the enemy to come in and begin to drown me with worry. I began to pray. I knew that God had spoken to me during his pregnancy. He told me not to worry that He had a plan for all my children. God, also, said that He has BIG plans for this one. I couldn't worry last night.
After catnapping for about an hour, we got up and got ready and got to the hospital by 5:30 am for surgery at 7 am. He was all smiles right up to the moment they wheeled him down the hall. He got these great big tears in his eyes and began to look frightened. I watched his bed until they turned a corner. Michael and I noted the time. 7:58 am. I spoke to God and asked Him to watch over this one that He has already saved once. 25 minutes later the doctor came back and said that he was well. Dr. S told us that his adenoids and tonsils were so large that he didn't know how AJay was even breathing at all. His throat and nasal passages were indeed blocked and that his little body was working so hard just to survive. His nurse brought him out about 15 minutes later and told us that his 1st question was, "Did I do good?" "Yes, you did great!" He replied, "Good". His 2nd question was, "Are the monsters (what he called them) in my throat all gone?" "Yes, they are all gone." He sighed deeply and said, "Good! Can I have a purple Popsicle?" And then, he fell asleep.
Today, as he has slept, he has had no heavy breathing. No snoring! No apnea! A little choking due to the fact that his sinuses were never allowed to drain and they are now doing it full force! He is not used to all the room he has back there so doesn't know what it feels like to eat normal amounts.
I praise God that the worry didn't come! I know what to do! Pray and praise! Quote Scripture. Bind the enemy! He had no place around my baby! Thank you all for the prayers! You rock! Continue to pray that he heals quickly! I pray that God will bless you all!
