We went to the ENT this morning. 6let's speech therapist thought his tonsils/adenoids might be big causing some problems. The kid snores, grasps to get get his breath sometimes, you can see him positioning his neck and tongue to get the air sometimes. He's also had trouble swallowing, waking up at night, and he's constantly clearing his throat. None of these things are life threatening, but they are annoying and have some affect on him.
The ENT confirmed that the tonsils are big. He said we can do a sleep study to verify the breathing is because of the tonsils, go straight to having surgery, or we can see if he grows out of it (4 yrs).
It's an outpatient surgery, but I'm torn on this. It's still surgery that carries a risk, but it could make life better. Then again it's not causing a terrible life. One more thing for DH and I to talk about tonight.
