Another surgery is in Oliver's future. He is going to have his tonsils and adenoids removed next month. His adenoids are HUMUNGOUS. In fact, our ENT couldn't get his scope past them to see into Oliver's throat. Kids with MPS can sometimes have fatty pockets in their throat, which makes intubating them very dangerous. He was hoping to get a good look today, so we can put together a plan. Unfortunately that was unable to happen, so he is going to scope Oliver's throat the day of the surgery. They will give Oliver a mild sedative to keep him calm during the procedure. If we get the all clear, the surgery will go on as planned. If not, we will move onto Plan B (not sure what that is yet).
I am just so thankful for an ENT who is familiar with all of the additional complicated issues surrounding MPS. We feel like we are in such capable hands.
