Long Day of Appointments Done

We're all very tired but also very encouraged. Jack recovered quickly from the anesthesia this morning. He was up and running within an hour and a half post procedure. The intubation (and extubation) did not seem to bother him a bit.

Dr. Hung, the ENT, was very encouraging. He wants us to try using Atrovent nasal spray again to help dry up Jack's secretions. We can give it several times a day or back off to once every few days--whichever works best to help decrease the secretions but not make them so thick that they obstruct his nasal passages.

He has given us more aggressive ear irrigation instructions and Jack will get another round of antibiotic drops to clear up his current infection (that we did not know he had).
