Over the course of the past year we have had Zach in speech therapy to help with his speech. We have seen great improvement but have still noticed that he sounds very congested or speaks nasally. To find out why we went to an ENT doctor and had x-rays done. The x-ray confirmed that his adenoids were causing over 75% blockage. We were kind of stunned but did the next step and had them removed. On Monday, October 25, 2010 Zach went to the surgery center and had the procedure done. It has made a huge difference in his voice and his speech. He is also sleeping more soundly at night. It's great. Here are a few photos while we were waiting at the surgery center. He did really great and had no problems waking up from the anestesia. He got to keep the pink mask that he breathed into to go to sleep. He thinks its his dark vadar mask. You will notice in the pictures that he did not like having to wear the blue hair net.
