Okay, so I need help with some parenting stuff. If you have something to share, please do so quickly.
Surgery has been scheduled to have Anastasia's tonsils removed. She has been suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea for a few months (that I have noticed), waking up every night... waking us up every night... No one has been sleeping well. Everyone is cranky. My sweet girl is not her sweet self.
ENT doctor asked if I'd looked at her tonsils. "No, I don't think so." So, I took a look inside...
So, yeah, we went ahead and scheduled the surgery. Since then, some people have told me of their success with avoiding tonsil-removal through homeopathy. I contacted a local homeopath and was shocked that she would charge $400+ before any treatment was even determined... I didn't pursue that any further. I just got off the phone with the pediatrician (who I really like, and is always open to my "alternative" suggestions and desires) and he said the tonsils are just big; there is no infection or something else going on that could be treated in a different way.
I am on his side of the fence at this point in the game. My daughter is miserable and so am I! That being said, I am interested in any comments, experiences, suggestions on the subject. Thank you.
