Swollen adenoids, breathing through mouth, snoring. Family members having cold, sore throat. Postpone adenoidectomy?

Hi, my son is schedueled to go in for a adenoidectomy tomorow, as he has swollen adenoids and snores/ breaths through his mouth. I am concerned because I (his mother) have been unwell for the last 4-5days. I have a very bad cough and very sore throat . Now my daughters have the cough and my husbands unwell too. Should we delay the procudure? What happens if he gets unwell before/after the procedure? Can it cause problems for him? If yes, what kind of problems?

no need to post pone the surgery. it is a very minor surgery and your son will be alright. post surgery antibiotics will be given, nothing to worry. he wil not contract infection from other members once the surgery is over
