follow-up on huntie

So … early November we had a follow-up appointment for Hunter’s last surgery.  All was well with her adenoids, but while she was under they did a his-panel on her to check her immune level … some of her levels came back a little low, so they wanted us to see an immune deficiency specialist.

We had her appointment last week, and thank God all her levels were normal.  A few on the low side of normal, but completely normal.  The only one he was a little concerned about was her tetanus level, so he gave her that vaccine again.

At the appointment, her chest didn’t sound good (she’s basically been sick since a couple days after her surgery), so he did a chest xray to check for pneumonia … but all is well!

We do have a call in to see why she is so sick all of the time.  Constant cough, sinus infection, etc.  But praise God it’s nothing serious!

hunter’s surgery

Poor little huntie needed surgery again.  First one was in April to get tubes in both ears and a dermoid cyst removed from her brow.

All went well with that surgery but she’s still sick all the time.  Basically, if she’s not on antibiotics, she’s sick.

I woke Hunter at 5:15ish this morning and put her right in the car in her p.j.’s.  Curt is traveling, so Taylor slept in my bed for when Piper & Wynter woke.  Granny was coming over a little later in the morning to take them to school.

So it was recommended to remove her adenoids.  We had that done this morning (they also replaced one ear tube).

She was so cute (sad to say) in her little hospital gown.  She stayed pretty drugged up for a while, but when she came to, she tried with all her might to get the tubes and cords off of her!

She’s sleepy, but recovering well …
