After our rough night last night, I took Antalya to the doctor. Turns out if you have croup you can't have surgery for at least six weeks. So, once again surgery is cancelled. All the emotions of hearing that news mixed with a sick, crying girl, and only a few hours of sleep last night made for one very not happy mom. I hate to admit that I have officially had a mommy melt down moment in the doctors office. Yeah, I'm sure her doc was loving it!
Anyways, I'm over the frustration for the most part (or maybe I'm just to exhausted to think about it anymore). I did schedule a meeting with the surgery on Friday to talk about it all. I don't remember the last time Antalya was healthy for more than 4 weeks in a row. I understand that there is added risk going into surgery if you aren't completely healthy and strong, but there's got to to a better answer than what we are doing now. The reason she needs the surgery is because she is always sick, and the reason she can't have the surgery is because she is always sick. What is a mom to do?
Here's to hoping November will the month we can finally saw good-bye to her darn tonsils and adenoids.
