Good News!

Gunnar and I are back from the ENT with good news.

IT WAS NO BIG DEAL!

The Doc was awesome.  Explained everything he was doing.  Checked to see what was actually going on in Gunnar's nose, and it was just as I expected; a bulging "octopus" of vessels on one side, and a couple of prominent ones on the other.  He took the time to thoroughly numb his nostrils, and did the cauterization with "medicine" on a little stick, followed by more numbing medicine.

When he asked Gunnar if it hurt, Gunnar compared it to the pins and needles you feel when your foot has gone numb and is 'waking up'.  But no tears.  No anxiety.  No problem.  In fact, when he told Gunnar that sometimes it has to be repeated to be effective, Gunnar was very nonchalant about it.

Our prayers are answered :D

I'm glad he stood the treatment well - that does not sound like a pleasant thing to go through! I'm glad it is done and over with - and I will pray that his little nose doesn't develop any more wonky blood vessels!

Good to hear! It is always great when you get a doctor who is good like that, with children, and it doesn't go astray with us oldies either!

To all of you 'blogger friends' of Julie's......A HUGE HEARTFELT THANKS for praying me through radiation. I still have much healing to do, yet, GOD IS GOOD! He has sustained me during and will continue throughout the healing process. My target date for complete 'wellness' is our son's wedding :). Again, THANK YOU ALL!
