Hey hey, this in not an ordinary day. Alma is going to have surgery to remove her tonsils. She’s in the sofa behind me, watching a movie. She is fasting and it makes her tired. I am very worried about the anesthetics. I am trying to keep calm infront of Alma because I want her to feel safe and secure. Axel is much cooler than me, he is out now. But the both of us will go with her to the hospital. It’s falling off. Let it be. The plaster is supposed to be on your arm. How are you Alma? I’m fine. Why do you ask? You know how I am. Sorry. Alma had breakfast at 9 AM and it’s 2 PM now I feel sorry for her. It’s not fun to be fasting and feel hungry. I want egg with salt. Egg with salt? Is that the yummiest you can think of right now? Yes. This operation is not a choice for us. Alma has to have this surgery. The doctors have told us that she doesn’t get enough oxygen when she is sleeping because her tonsils are too big. She has something called obstructive sleep apnea. It’s usually old and overweight men who snore that have sleep apnea. But kids can have it too. If their tonsils are enlarged. You can’t film when I am naked. No I wont. What’s happening now? I am about to have surgery and I’m a bit nervous. You are going to put on the hospital gown. Yes. Can I lie down now? Yes, this is your bed. The doctors will come and get you soon. They can move this bed to the operating room. Is the surgery going to hurt? No you wont feel anything. You will be asleep. How will they remove the tonsils? They have tools. They will open your mouth and that’s why you’re going to be asleep. So you wont feel uncomfortable and move around. Will the doctor cut my tongue? No. They have a tool to hold your tongue and they will burn away the tonsils. What will I dream of? I would like to dream of myself being on a skateboard every day. We are not allowed to film now. I will see you after the operation. Bye bye. It looks like you’ve seen a ghost. I am very worried. You look like…I don’t know what. She’s on the operating table now. There are four people in the room. Two anesthetists, one nurse and the doctor that will do the operation. It will take 10-15 minutes, maybe 20 minutes. They had problems placing the syringe so they put her to sleep with gas. When she’s out from the operating room it will take 15-30 minutes before she wakes up. Sit here with me. How are you? I’m fine. I’m not allowed to film in there. No I understand that. It was a bit dramatic. Alma didn’t want to inhale gas that smelled like nail polish. She resisted. Then she fell asleep and I had to leave her there and walk out of the room. I feel so worried. I want to be there with her. You wouldn’t have liked it. And I can understad why they can’t have two parents in there. But it feels terrible not being with her. You can go in there now. So I can be there when she wakes up? Yes. What a fancy costume. Yes very. Classy. I’d like to keep that. Why? You look like someone in Breaking Bad. I really do. You can go and cook some meth now. Seriously, I miss her so much now. Just go. The two of us can’t go in, right? Right. How are you Alma? I’m ok. Show me your arm. Alma has just woken up and she’s having an ice cream. Your throat hurts right? Yes. Ice cream is good for you. Alma! Hey! My little darling. We switched and Axel has been with her in there for a while. I have been waiting out here. You are the best. Who’s the best? I am! Who’s the strongest? I am! Who’s had an operation? I have! Alma you are so cool. What’s this? Your bracelet? Yes. How are you feeling? I’m ok. Should I take this off? I would like to have a skateboard. You want a skateboard? Let’s buy one. I have to admit that it was unexpected that we went to buy a skateboard. She also got a beanie, can you see? I’m happy that we went to a sport shop, it means that Alma is feeling well. Alma, you’re a champ! I will teach you how to skate once I have learned. You are the best! Thank you. I just want to eat now. How does it feel in your throat? Ok. Really? Mmm Here we go! Alma wanted meatballs, spaghetti and mozzarella so that’s what she’s eating. Mommy! I was brave. Let me tell you of someone else that’s been brave today. Alma came to the hospital and she had to inhale a gas to put her to sleep. The doctor opened her mouth. And burned away some things in there. Scary! Yes, scary. And you know what. When she woke up, she had an ice cream. But she threw it up mixed with saliva and blood. Can I have an ice cream? Yes, you can have an ice cream. Give it to me now please. So much for trying to be educational with a 3 year old. He’s fantastic. Harry you’re the best. So are you Alma. He seems to like the skateboard as much as you do. Good night. How are you feeling? I’m tired and worn out. My throat hurts. You’ve been so brave today. Harry sings 🙂 You never fail to make us smile Harry. You’re born to be an… Entertainer. What a day. Yes. I have been worried about this operation for months. Not so much about the surgery, but about the anesthetics. I have been thinking; what if Alma never wakes up again? So when she woke up today after the operation I felt so relieved. I became myself again. My worries begin now and will go on the following three weeks. She can start to bleed in her throat. And if she does, and if it’s severe, we have to take her to hospital immediately. Alma was on painkillers today after the operation. So she could have a proper meal. But she will most probably be in pain the next coming days. It will be difficult for her to eat and talk. This vlog is quite different from the videos we usually upload.
