Olive is about a week out from surgery and states the moment I pick her up that she has a splitting headache. I’m sure she never said a word to anyone at school about it. I’ve given her ice packs as we are getting closer to surgery and she cannot have any of her usually magic medicine to help with her headaches.
To add insult to injury (headaches as it were), she had 5.5 hours of medical appointments this am. Speech and OT testing continues this week, meeting to clear her ears with an ENT, meeting with her pediatrician and lastly, meeting with her dentist for a complete review, cleaning and sealant. The amount of medical appointments before and after this surgery is ridiculous. So she missed all morning and the poor kid has 6 pages of make-up homework and no Pain meds.
I’m really hoping to improve her quality of life with this surgery.
