What happened today, has never happened to us before. Lizze and I were both trying to remember back but I honestly think this is the first time this has ever happened.
As you know, we were doing to Akron Children’s Hospital today so Gavin could see the ENT. We thought he was going to need surgery to have his tonsils and adnoids removed. We were referred here by immunology because his sinus issues hadn’t improved in the almost 5 months he has been receiving antibody infusions and there was concern that tonsil and adnoid issues may be behind that.
Dr. Milo checked out Emmett first. I’m pleased to report that Emmett has made a full recovery and as far as the ENT is concerned, nothing else needs to be done.
…..and then it was Gavin’s turn.
Dr. Milo and a resident examined Gavin and took x-rays of his sinus cavities.
It’s with complete disbelief and utter amazement that I can report to you all today that Gavin does not need surgery. 🙂
His sinuses are actually getting better and his adnoids and tonsil are not an issue. Apparently, it takes a long time for this to correct itself and may still require a month or so of antibiotics but he doesn’t need surgery.
Unbelievable……. We actually took Gavin to a doctor expecting the typical stream of bad news to wash our spirits and hope down the drain. Instead, we heard the words “Gavin’s doing good”.
I honestly didn’t know what to say………
HELL YEAH comes to mind along with a few others that would make your ears burn.
While in the grand scheme of things this isn’t a big deal, it is a morale booster. God knows Gavin deserves to catch a freaking break. So I’ll gladly accept this break and hope that it is a sign of things to come. 🙂
