My 11-year old is having her super gigantic tonsils out on Friday so I wanted to get all of your best care advice for her.
What are the best foods to serve? And for how long? (The doctor says it hurts like crazy about a week out because of the healing.)
When is it the most painful?
Did you keep them in bed or just not let them be active? (The doctor says no physical activity or traveling for two weeks.)
How can we make her the most comfortable?
What was the worst part of the surgery? Rose is worried about the IV. I am worried about the ventilator.
Tell me your tips to help her heal and keep her happy during and after the surgery.
