We found out today that one of my 3.5 year old twins has to have some surgery soon to remove his tonsils and adenoids.  He's always been a noisy eater, drinker and dribbler since birth and it's time.

Our surgeon feels it will completely change is childhood as he will sleep better and feel better BUT it will be a horrible two week of recovery for someone so young. He won't be able to talk or eat and will be in alot of pain. "2 weeks of hell for a better childhood"  were his exact words. Owch. Not what a mum wants to hear.

I've resisted this surgery for over a year but he is now lacking oxygen so badly when he sleeps - there is little alternative. I'm worried, anxious and already tearing up when I think about it. Not to mention my boys have only been apart once in 4 years so it will be quite the challenge for us all.

I know I will have to make him lots of sweet, soft, nourishing foods during his recovery. Children who are healing need high protein, nutrient rich foods.

I'm know he will be fine - me on the other hand may need some valium!  I'll settle for Vanilla Custard for us both.

I hope it hits the spot.
