Throat surgery #1

Posted Sep 11 2009 4:57pm

Before and after photos of Reuben's throat and airway, not for the squemish so sorry if I offend. Throat surgery went well, anaesthesia tolerated, granulomas removed from above vocal chords, swelling treated with steroids. The Little Red Reuster remaining intubated whilst Reuben's throat heals.

Trying to keep Reuben pretty paralysed til Friday so he doesn't aggravate his throat and then, another planned extubation. It's a slightly awful thing to watch as whenever Reuben wakes and wriggles, he's sedated again, thus helping the throat healing process. Of course it goes against nature to keep a baby from wriggling.

Yet, a positive step today.
