On July 28, Patrick had a septoplasty (deviated septum repair). He'd had it done about 9 years ago, but the doctor couldn't completely repair it because he wasn't finished growing. He e-mailed me this morning to say that the doctor removed the splints from inside his nose a couple of days ago. He said he can breathe through his nose for the first time in years. I'll post an AFTER photo whenever he sends me one. He took these with his phone.
Rebecca was with Patrick after the surgery. She said that they had to get 5 or 6 nurses to hold him down when he was coming out of anesthesia.
Thanks to Tom, Rebecca, Andrea and Lili for taking such good care of my "baby"!
