After yet another night of insomnia, I am turning into a real basket case. Seriously, I've felt on the verge of crying all day.
Yet, we had some great news this morning. We went to our first visit with the ENT and I am so glad we did. Our pediatrician had advised us to wait until we had the sleep study done, but considering that we can't even see the sleep doc until mid March and a sleep study probably won't happen for weeks after that... well, we just couldn't wait.
After the exam, he told us that her tonsils are huge and that he'd like to take the tonsils and adenoids out right away. The scheduling process is underway and we should hopefully have it done in the next 2-3 weeks, fingers crossed. I came very close to crying with happiness (although not a huge stretch for sleep-deprived me.)
Who else is thrilled to find out their baby should have surgery? In this crowd, I guess I'm probably not alone. Her doctor says we will probably notice an improvement in her breathing as soon as the same day. And obviously, we hope that this will improve her sleep, and thus, improve ours.
So I am very, very excited. Happy that there actually is something going on. Happy that we can take some action even without waiting forever for the blasted sleep study. Happy that it's not all in my mind. (Well, chances are, my insomnia is in my mind. The constant wake-ups courtesy of Cora are not.)
So that's the update.
I think I'm too tired to post a picture. I've certainly been too tired to take any pictures. Rain check?
