Tonsils~Shmonsils

We had another appointment to check the big kids' tonsil situation. They are scheduled for surgery next Thursday. They are all at a stage 3 plus. It only goes to 4. 4 is when the tonsils actually touch. I thought I would include pictures of what I am talking about. The first is of "normal" tonsils.




This is more what my kids' tonsils look like. Big difference huh?


I am not looking forward to having all 3 of my big kids having such a procedure done, but it needs to be. I don't want to put it off and have them worry about it when they are older. Like me and my braces, that I don't have :(


Say a little prayer for them next Thursday. And a BIG one for me. :)

6 SAY WHAT??????????????????:

Gross. I am glad they can get help. Good luck. I think you are smart to do them all at once and before school.

Poor kids! I feel so bad for them! But I'm sure everything will go just fine and they'll be better soon! You know I'm here if you need anything..I can take Burke anytime! <3

Good Luck Alli! Having all three done at one time will be a handful but nice to get it all done at once. They should give you a discount! Annie had to have her tonsils and adenoids taken out at three. It was totally worth it! Will be thinking about you and the kiddos. :)

Wow, that is crazy. I'm so sorry that is awful. I will definitely be praying for you and your precious kiddos! I hope you are gonna have tons of help. Wish I was there to pitch in. Good luck!
