Nate got his tonsils out on Friday. The surgery itself went well, and Nate has been amazing. He hasn't complained about the pain, he was eating food within an hour, and has been a real trooper.
The problem is that he's on an activity restriction for 2 weeks. No running, no jumping, nothing that can elevate his pulse or his blood pressure.
That's made for a tough week. First of all, Nate is a sensory seeker, so he's used to jumping on the couch, doing sommersaults, wrestling with his brother, running throughout the house, etc. He also LOVES to play outside which is off limits.
I can't tell you how many times I've had to say, "Don't run", or "Stop wrestling with your brother".
Needless to say, he's crazy out of sync since he can't get the crazy, bouncy, heavy activity that he's used to. We even had to miss OT.
Tomorrow is his follow up with the ENT doctor who did the surgery, and I'm going to beg and plead that he pretty please lift the activity restriction early.
I'm not sure I can keep this boy down much longer!
