Around July, I noticed a "bump" behind Kie's right ear while he was sick. It wasn't something I thought was normal but thought it might have something to do with him being sick. It kinda felt like a swollen gland but was not where you would usually feel for one when your sick. I monitored it and it never went away. We visited 2 general physicians and finally the ENT about it. The recommendation was to have it removed. Jared & I wrestled with if that was the right thing to do. We just weren't sure that putting him under and cutting on him was the best move. We prayed and sought further medical advice and finally decided to go forward with the surgery.
And we are so glad we did. We had the surgery at Huntsville Hospital and it was such a pleasant experience as you can see from him watching the Disney Channel in his little gown. He had the surgery on a Monday and I had made arrangements to not do much for the week. However by Tuesday morning he was better than before. Kie has felt remarkably better since his surgery and we are blessed to have 2 healthy children
