Update on my son: He had his surgery last Thursday and he is doing great. The 1st day he was whiney and clingy. After that he was fine, playing, eating normal. Wow, I guess I expected it to be worse. I only had to take 2 days off of work compared to the 4 I was going to have to take. Glad we had it done! He sleeps much better through the night now.

I'm so glad he's doing well. I've heard that it's a fairly quick recovery for kids. That's great that he's sleeping better now too.
