Aidan’s Tonsillectomy Recovery Diary

tonsillectomy

Before I start this post I’d just like to say that I am by no means a healthcare professional, this post is purely our experience. 

Aidan recently underwent a tonsillectomy , adenoidectomy, grommets inserted AND his sinuses flushed! He’s just 4 years old so I was extremely anxious about the whole thing. We knew it had to be done at some point but we didn’t anticipate that the ENT would recommend having it done asap!

Aidan’s nose has been blocked for more days of his life than it’s been unblocked. It got progressively worse and over the last couple of months, he struggled to breath while sleeping. The ENT said that by removing his enlarged tonsils and adenoids and inserting a tiny tube, it will significantly improve his breathing.

I knew that it was a relatively “minor” procedure but I also suspected that the recovery from the surgery could be pretty rough. And I actually had no idea what to expect.

There’s no doubt that Valentine’s day is way over commercialised. But at the same time I love that it gives us the opportunity to celebrate with those we love. It’s just a sweet reminder to show the ones we love how we really feel!

It’s been a while since Kurt and I actually went on a date night for Valentine’s day. We’ve been celebrating with the kids over the last few years. This year, we may just change that!

Book Review: Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Essentialism book review

If I’m going to be honest with myself and you – last year I was stretched too thin.

I had so many balls in the air last year that by the time I went on leave in December, I was so burnt out. My body felt it. My lower back was in a complete spasm. I felt exhausted all the time and I could literally just sleep all day every day! My body was literally forcing me to relax and take it easy.

While on leave I read a few books, one being Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg Mckeown and it’s just what the Doctor ordered!

The Pro’s And Cons of A Staycation

staycation

For the first time in a very long time I can say that we had a proper staycation. We didn’t do much, just lounged around at home. Basically just swim, eat, relax and repeat. It was more than relaxing to say the least and I can honestly say that I feel my body has rebooted.

But on the other hand, there were a couple of cons which makes me want to plan our next Summer holiday right now!!! Before I do that, I think I should list all the pro’s and con’s and see which option is best for my family
