So, the problem with not posting in MONTHS is that so much happens in the time since I've written, that I can't possibly write it all here. And the task becomes this huge thing that I avoid because the thought of trying to write down all of what's been going on is daunting. But here's my attempt...Please know that this has been written over the course of a few weeks, so some of it is outdated. Sorry..

I started to write this post a couple of weeks ago, before the surgery. I decided to keep it here so I could remember/document our thoughts leading up to it..
The doctor told me the full recovery period is about 6 weeks. But she should be back to playing and eating normally by two weeks. By 6 weeks we should see her really feeling better, sleeping better, no snoring, no mouth breathing, no sleep apnea, etc. I can't wait for week 6. She's got a lot of drainage from her nose still, partially because she had a sinus infection going in to the surgery, and also because drainage is just a part of the recovery. She's on antibiotics to try to ward off any new infections, but I think she's actually resistant to amoxicillan since she's been on it so often in her short 4 years.
