Adiel underwent a tonsillectomy.

Adiel successfully underwent his tonsillectomy. He recovered well post-surgery and by evening he was able to feed and by the second day he was already able to head home. Once he fully heals, Adiel will be able to eat and avoid high fevers, pain, and other complications.

Adiel’s parents were very happy and his mother said, “We are very happy because of the successful treatment. At least now he will be sleeping well and he can grow up without the struggles he was encountering before. Thank you!”

Adiel was brought in to the hospital carried by his mother. He’s a 19-month-old baby from Kiambu County in Kenya and is the second of two children. His family has a small farm and his mother also has a college degree in beauty therapy. Usually, Adiel is a jolly child, but his mother said that he has frequent tonsil swelling which affects his happiness and can make feeding difficult, especially when he also develops a high fever.

Adiel’s condition started about six months ago. His parents have been taking him to the hospital but the condition keeps on recurring. The ENT surgeon at the hospital has advised that Adiel must undergo a tonsillectomy to fix this condition. If not treated, the condition will lead to complications like disrupted breathing during sleep, otitis media (middle ear infection), and peritonsillar abscess. His parents are eager for Adiel to receive the surgery so that he can heal soon.

Adiel’s mother said, “It is disheartening to see our baby struggling at this age. We are kindly requesting help so that once treated he can be able to be sleeping well and grow up without problems.”
