Logan went in for an outpatient surgery last Thursday. He had been thinking about getting checked for this for awhile and kept putting it off. So finally he made an appointment at the Sinus Center and they said if he got this surgery it would help him feel so much better. So they went in and fixed his deviated septum and did a balloon type thing up in his sinuses to enlarge them. It was about a 2 hour surgery. Here he is before it. He had NEVER even had an i.v. before. So of course it was his first time to have surgery or be in a hospital bed. We had a lot of good laughs before he went back.
Here's the humor of my husband....he wanted to do this to one of the nurses. We were sending this to our family before he went back for surgery.
This is after the surgery. Afterwards his doctor came out to see me and said his nose was a mess. They even had to break some bones to get it all straight up in there. Not fun. They insert tubes (large ones) up in his nostrils....he just now got those out this morning. He has had to sleep upright for 2 weeks and can't lift anything over 10lbs! That would be way less than any of our kids. He is feeling much better though and really glad he had it all done.
This is the night of the surgery....I just wanted to remember his bandage. The boys kept asking why dad had a bandaid on his nose :)
