Another Sad Feeling for My Heart

Amelia is a snorer. I don't mean a dainty puff of a snore, I mean a giant roar of a snore. She must have gotten it from her Grandfather; there is no one else in our family that snores that substantially. Snoring isn't so bad unless it wakes you up through the night and prevents you from getting a good night's sleep. You wake up with dark circles under your eyes and feel bad the whole day. She also seems to have a shortness of breath when she sleeps. All of this led us down that familiar path to the ENT doctor who has deemed Amelia's tonsils SO large that they need to be removed. It seems like a minor thing, but when it's your baby being put to sleep and operated on; it is not minor at all.

I remember the hard 2 weeks we had with Gavin while he recovered and he's seemingly pretty tough. Not Millie; she's a marshmallow. Stubbed toes and minuscule scrapes call for band aids and lots of TLC. I can only imagine what healing from surgery will be like. If you are the praying type, say a small one for us in early November.

Will be praying for Miss Millie!
Just try and think of how much better she will be when it all over! =)

Oh, darn it! It's so hard to see your kiddos go through these things. ((hugs)) We'll keep her in our prayers that all goes well, recovery is a piece of cake, and that sleeping becomes a much quieter event! :)

I hope it goes quickly and smoothly, and that Millie surprises you by bouncing back without much fuss.

Awww...poor baby!! I can't imagine that being a fun experience. And I agree no matter how "minor" watching your baby go through anything is heart breaking!! Praying for your little girlis and some quick healing for her!!

I feel for you as her Mama. My daughter has her 19 mo. old son having his tonsils and adenoids out on Mon. because of apnea. It's so scary to have our little ones going through surgery. My prayers are with you and some internet hugs, too.

I pray she'll surprise you and be one tough little cookie!
