"Pushing PO's, Forcing Fluids, Heavily Hydrated...." However you want to term it - the task is easier said than done in regards to a 14 month old stubborn girl who's throat feels like it is on fire and refuses to open her mouth. This is our feeble attempt. We simply lay glass after glass, snack after snack in front of her and hope that when we aren't looking, Paloma sneaks a bite or a drink and stays ahead of the hydration game.

Hi! My name is Melissa Brooks. I am a friend of Merranda. My son is 3 1/2 and has the hugest tonsils ever!! A year ago we had his adenoids removed, but the dr. urged us to wait until much older to have is tonsils removed. How did it go and how is it going? We haven't had a sleep study done, but he sleeps awful awful!! I have worried about REM and cognitive reprecusions ... We just don't know how long we should wait, but want to trust the Dr.'s opinion. Was your dr. at all worried about doing it on such a young child? My email is I'd love to hear from you.
