But, Charlotte is one tough cookie. She has been through a lot, and her high pain tolerance and ability to roll with whatever comes at her always amazes me. I am hoping that even though we are preparing for a brutal 7-10 day recovery, it ends up being better than we expect. Her health history earns her an overnight stay after surgery, which is some ways is nice as they can better manage her pain and fluid intake.
It is our hope that without her tonsils and adenoids, her sleep will improve (her snoring sounds like a freight train!), and the fluid that sits in her ears at times will disappear. Luckily she has been healthy other than a few colds (no ear infections, sinus infections, etc), and we were given the option of waiting to do this surgery for when she was older, however, we would like to do it before she is in school full time. Plus, I am thinking recovery at 3 will be easier than 6...maybe?!
We will be stocking up on popsicles and ice cream this week, and thankfully they just released another season of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (C's new fave) to Amazon Prime.
Advice from those who have been there done that?
