When your child snores

When your child snores:

And you think it is funny, until you really give some thought to those "mammoth" tonsils

and the fact that your child wakes up all night long

and that she can fall asleep at the drop of a hat during the day

and that she doesn't eat well, often spitting it out instead of swallowing it

and you can hear her breathing from a mile away

and that she has been on antibiotics 30 out of the last 60 days

and that pesky 100.6 fever comes and goes day in and day out for over a month now

and you get to visit the Dr. tomorrow at noon...

The only thing left to do is to tape her and play it for all to hear:



oh yeah, I already did that...now I can only hope I can find the tape when she starts dating because that would be SO MEAN!

Oh bless her! (If it makes her feel better, my husband testified that I snored like a freight train on our wedding night.)

Hope she feels better soon!

I hope she feels better! Any thoughts on the tonsils? The poor thing!

I snore like a train every night, Boo will tell you all the time. lol

You will pay for that one when she is older, Mom! I feel so bad for her with her tonsils, but I couldn't help but laugh at the "when she is dating comment". I so got a visual.

Oh Terra - I'm so sorry. My daughter Hayley had the same problem. We ended up having her tonsils and adenoids taken out. It really helped with her getting sick and also helped with her sleeping. She sleeps so much better now!

I hope you get some good answers tomorrow!

((hugs))

Oh but what a cute little snore it is. I hope you get it all figured out. Do they take tonsils out at that age? She's going to love you for taping that :)

Becky said...

Such a cute little snore. Anxious to hear what the dr says.

Sweet thing. My friend's daughter is getting her adnoids removed next week. Looks like all the signs are pointing to that direction - I hope you get some answers soon.

Allison said...

Oh, how cute and funny all at the same time! I do hope the doc can give you some answers tomorrow!

Dang it! I don't have speakers for this other dumb computer!!! But I'll have to say she looks tootie cute with those little, rosy cheeks!

I'm thinking a visit to the ENT sooner than later?....Poor baby!

Hugs!

Jen said...

Aw, poor thing - hope she is feeling better soon. We ended up having to have my son's tonsils and adenoids removed when he was little. It was scary for me, but it ended up making a world of difference for him.

Lindsay said...

The Bailey Family said...

oh poor baby.

Christie said...

Do you think they'll take her tonsils out? My son had his out and it was HORRIBLE. If that's the case, I just have to warn you. It will not be pretty.

Krape Family said...

Oh poor thing. Hope you get some satisfying news tomorrow.

Alicia said...

Remember that's all the stuff we went through with Ben ~ adenoids and tonsils are gone and he has been pretty healthy! Let me know if I can do anything for you! Good luck tomorrow!

Alicia said...

oops ~ I guess your appointment was today :o) I am a day behind on checking blogs. Send me an email ~ let me know how things went.

Laura said...

Oh no!
Poor girl.
I want to hug her.
Hug her for me please.

she is so sweet. what did the doc say? I am such a light sleeper it would drive me mad!

Anita said...

hey Terra, sorry I'm late in replying, but yes I had a little snorer too. My daughter was 6, she had Strep Throat 5 or 6 times that year, and even healthy her tonsils were HUGE, the ENT(which I read later you have an appt to see in May.@@(rolling eyes))said he was surprised she could breathe!!!
The tonsillectomy was a breeze compared to how sick she'd been. We had 3 rough days, but she's never had Strep since, doesn't snore,etc. She is 15 now.
Good luck!
