Camden had his adenoids removed on Feb. 11th. He has been having constant runny noses, sinus infections and non-stop drooling. After seeing many doctors and specialists we finally found out his adenoids are HUGE! They were so big he couldn't even breathe through his nose at all. Poor little guy. We were greatly relieved to finally have a diagnosis with a fairly easy fix. An adenoidectomy is a relatively minor surgery. It only took 20 minutes. Camden was a little pitiful when he woke up, but after he came home and took a 2 hour nap, he was just fine!
Camden calls them Happy Cakes. I guess it's short for Happy Birthday cake. It's a good name, though. Doesn't all cake make you happy?
Our little guy is feeling much better and we are hoping to see improvement with all the sinus issues, snoring, mouth breathing and drooling! The ENT said it would take a couple of weeks before we really see an improvement. We are just relieved to finally have it over with. Camden's surgery was rescheduled twice because the doctor broke his arm and then had to have sinus surgery himself!
Update: it has been a month now and Camden is doing great! With the exception of a cold, he has not had any runny noses or infections and his drooling has improved dramatically!
