Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

I just wanted to quickly update from Lily’s ENT appointment. He was very nice, on time and cute with Oliver as well as spoke to Lily not just me. Those are all major pluses when dealing with a Dr. He looked at her sleep study and said she had 10 apnea spells and hour and when I said “wow” he said that was moderate. Yikes, glad she isn’t severe.

Half the time there is obstruction and that is why he agrees the tonsils and adenoids should come out. He said it won’t help her completely, but it will help and she may sleep better.

I have been praying that we will be told what we need to do for Lily so I am going with this as it is supposed to be. But I am not gonna lie, I do not want to put her through this. Breaks my heart.

I have been around 3 people who have had those taken out in the past years and they all said it hurts. Hurts bad.

As a strep throat every year kind of gal (3x in 2010) I know that a sore throat can bring you to a crying little girl. It was me last year, just wanting death to take me away. The only comfort is I know she will get good meds and we will have to keep it up every 4 hours and maybe that way if we are proactive, she will not be too miserable. But with no caregivers right now and not even a sight of one in the near future, I am a little worried about taking good care of her and not letting the crazy other two make things too hectic for Lily bug. I was thinking we should do it during fall break but then thought her home all week long with her brother and sister all house bound? Maybe not such a great idea. They should be calling to schedule so we will get that done and plan accordingly. She will stay one night in the hospital if all goes well, so that is actually a good thing. I feel better having help from nurses after things like that.

Pray for Lily and her mama’s heart as we get ready for yet another surgery.

2012…. please tell me you have a rainbow with a bag of pedicures and facials at the end of it. Please.

  1. When they don’t eat, it sucks. Hopefully the meds will help Lily and she can have a fun fall break. Hang in there mom!

    Thinking of Lily and hoping she is doing OK.

  3. Hang in there Kim, there just has to be light at the end of this tunnel. :-)Had to smile when you said no-one was game to have a feel inside of Lily’s mouth to see if her teeth were coming through.Can you crush and mix her medicine into a liquid that she would drinkso that you could be more sure that she is getting the majority of it.I so hope you are able to get her back to where you were comfortable with how she was doing.How are YOU doing, are you keeping well in your pregnancy, I can’t believe you are now more than halfway through your pregnancy. You must be getting excited about the arrival of this little boy. You cope so admirably now, I’m sure you will breeze through any challenges put in front of you.What a relief to be able to get some in home therapy sessions, not so much running around, especially when your weather gets hot in the summer. We too get very hot summers, sometimes in the early 40’s Centigrade, thank heavens for air conditioning hey.Well I’ll say cheerio for now and will continue to visit with you everyday.Take careLots of Love Carolynn xxx 🙂
