Just got back from the hospital with my daughter. She had her adnoids removed yesterday and what was supposed to be a 20 minute surgery turned into a 24 hour scary ordeal. Her adnoids were about 6x the normal size for someone her age and she had an artery leading to them. The doctors brought her out of surgery and said that she was still bleeding a little but not to worry, that it would stop. An hour and a half later, Chrysta was still bleeding from her nose and it was progressively getting worse. They called the surgeon back in. Had to put Chrysta back under anesthesia and cauterize the artery again. We were transferred over to the hospital for observation and things look good now. Though they are looking into a common blood disorder that my daughter may have. Von Willerbrands Disease. Soo, we're home and she's all laid out on the couch relaxin and watchin tv. Our trip to Florida has been cancelled *sigh* for now. We'll be going back and forth to the ENT and the Hematologist for a while to have some tests run and for checkups. All in all she lost a unit of blood for someone her size but no transfusion was needed *WOOOT* What's kinda weird... tonyspoker had pmed me a few days ago about something very similiar that happened to her and I thought "Nahhh couldnt happen to my kid" lol If you won an auction from me, it will be shipping out today or tomorrow.
