ENT Today

Tip toeing along the very freaking edge of freaking out. I have my "things" but I am generally not an alarmist when it comes to my kids health. Of course we have been lucky and very blessed where that's concerned. Other than the finger smashing incident a few months ago in Shopko, we have managed to keep out of emergency rooms. I'm liking life like this.

Pearl had her appointment with the ENT on the 15th, but they graciously moved it up to this afternoon. Her crunchy, grind-y, gurgle-y breathing is about the same... but she has not been able to get solid food down her throat since Saturday night. At least the first I became aware of the problem was when she gagged and choked on the wee piece of white bread from the sacrament tray on Sunday morning. As far as I can tell, the only thing that has made it past the... whatever it is that does not allow even baby cereal to get by... is rice milk, water and juice.

Thankfully, she is relatively chipper. Except for the sleeping bit. She's not too hip on sleeping. Oh, and the clinging part... I'm not allowed to put her down.

I am not yet freaking out. I am just "stressing out." Yeah, that's what it is... stressing.

My daughter was 5 when she got her tonsils & adenoids out, & what a difference it made! MUCH better...and relatively easy, seriously. Good luck!!

Pearly girl! So sad. I'm thinking about you guys and hoping that the appointment gives the answers that you need.

That is slightly disconcerting - I'd be with you on the not all together freaking, but certainly raising an eyebrow. Good thoughts your way :^)

I hope that she is feeling better soon - Glad that she got in to the doctor.

Tink an T&A at 2.5. It was the best thing we did for her. She finally slept through the night and could eat.
