Salivary gland ablation!

We are going back for round 2! The last time we did the ablation, we did 5 of the 6 glands....1 of the big ones and all 4 little ones. He normally won't do that many at once. He usually does one side at a time (1 big gland and 2 little ones), but since Charlie is a little more talented in secretion production, he did more. And he normally doesn't go back and do the last one, but again, my kid is extraordinarily talented. So we're doing it again. I'm hoping it's not as bad this time. Last time she was in the PICU for 4 days because she was so swollen her airway got blocked off. I scheduled it for a Friday though, just in case. If she does end up in the PICU again, I don't have to worry about work over the weekend. It's scheduled for June 17. Wish us luck!
