A Prayer For Miss Em, Please

The Dumpling is having her adenoids out and tubes put in on Wednesday morning. I sure would appreciate a prayer or two for her. I'm sort of dreading this. I've been down the adenoid /tube road a couple of times before with my other kids but it's different with Em. I can't explain anything to her and I know when it's over and she is most likely hysterical I still won't be able to explain anything to her.


And of course I'm second guessing the decision to even have the surgery. When we took her to the ENT she had been having sinus infections almost one right after another, a constant runny/ congested nose, mouth breathing , even some sleep apnea, and snoring. since the DAY we went to the ENT and he decided to get rid of the trouble causing adenoids she hasn't had one of those symptoms! She's been just fine!

I keep telling myself that all the yuckiness will return , it always does and the surgery which is all of ten minutes long will be the best thing for her.

Just wish it was over.

Thanks for the prayers will keep you posted.

Ohhh, good luck tomorrow!!! She'll do great, I'm sure. Sammi's been having a lot of congestion lately, too, but it always seems like the first thing the ENTs suggest is having T&A surgery, which we have not done. Hopefully it helps Em!

Don't second guess yourself. Get this done while she is healthy. I know its hard when they don't understand whats happening, but she'll soon forget and you'll be home again! Sending hugs for our sweet Em!

Many prayers for her and for your peace. We are very thankful we had Alayna's out with her tonsils in Nov. She will do great I just know it.

Lots of prayers coming your way. I hope she has an easy time recovering, but I think you're smart to do it now. I'll be watching for updates :)

Good Luck Em! I went the opposite when we were at the ENT Friday. She has had no congestion and her tubes were patent. We decided to wait another 6 months since he wants to do the tonsils at the same time. 2 days later the congestion is back and I am wiping her nose constantly.
You will do fabulous!
