So we finally got proof that my son needs his tonsils out. We were referred to a Ped ENT last April to have his tonsils and adnoids out due to recurrent sinus infections. Finally, a year later we got a sleep study. Not just sleep apnea, but SEVERE sleep apnea. I took him to his regular ped last week because he wasn't eating well. He was the one to look up the study results. He told us it is so bad he needs it ASAP. I managed to get surgery scheduled for May 18th. That was the earliest it could be scheduled. He sees his ENT on Thursday the 6th. But here's the kicker. I'm having a baby on Saturday the 8th. I've been on bedrest for my blood pressure. Well, as much as bedrest as is possible. So, new baby along with stress of a 2 year old having surgery and most likely staying overnight (he's under 3years and under 25lbs). I also have a 4 year old son.
And words of advice about kids recovering from tonsil removal??
Any words of support also appreciated.
