She's 22 months and a ball of energy.
She's my daughter Cassandra, and she's much better now.
Many have been asking how my daughter "Cassie", as we call her, has been doing since having her tonsils and adenoids removed on November 17th. Thank you for caring :) The answer now is MUCH BETTER. That certainly wasn't the case the week after. My poor baby would hardly sip from her bottle, let alone eat a thing and this went on for over a week. I was beginning to think I was never going to get my baby back. She was super cranky and only wanted to be held the entire time. I coudn't blame her. I could feel the pain she was in through the look in her eyes. People kept telling me how much easier it is to have your tonsils out as a child, than as an adult... I'm calling "BS" on that. At 22 months, she couldn't tell me how she felt or ask me for anything. Sure, she probably won't remember going through this, but I sure will. She was one miserable baby. Thankfully, it was only a week and a half until we started to see her want to play again.
Having this tough time with our Cassie, really put things into perspective for my husband Chris and I. We work with many parents who have had to go through far worse, for longer amounts of time, with their children who are suffering from things children should NEVER have to go through. We had this discussion after Cassie was feeling better. I can't even imagine going through something worse, and I hope I never have to. And while I was not a happy camper while my baby was dealing with her post-tonsillectomy pain, I'm thankful for every cold, illness or minor surgery that comes our way that isn't something like cancer.
For those working mommies (or daddies) who have kiddos who may have to have this procedure, I say plan to take a week off of work to be home with your child. That's the one thing I wish I had been told. There are times that my kids need ME and only ME. This was one time.
Do you have any other words of wisdom to share as a parent who has been there?
