How Many PA With Tonsils Removed? At What Age?

Okay, in my day and age [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] it was quite common for children to have their tonsils removed or so I am led to believe. At the age of 2, both my sister and I had our tonsils out.

My PA son, this past year, at the age of 8, has had two bouts of tonsillitis (I've spoken about this in off topic). Never had it before. Not sure where it's going. But not the reason I'm asking this question.

My daughter has a child in her class that is also PA. He was away this week because he spent March break (in Canada) having his tonsils out. He returned to school yesterday I believe full-time and I spoke briefly with his Mom. Anyway.

How many of us have PA children, or are PA adults that have had their tonsils out? At what age?

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My PA son had them removed when he was 4. No history of tonsilitis , but they were HUGE! He had sleep apnea, periods in his sleep where he would stop breathing, it would make me so paranoid. He would toss and turn, wake up in the middle of the night and fall asleep during the day. After the surgery he slept soooo quiet and sooooo sound I was even more paranoid!

Hi Cindy,
I had my tonsils out as a child.. I think I was about 7 or 8 years old but I don't remember exactly when...

erik, are you up because you watched the Finale of Sex and The City? That's why I'm up (oh he**, everyone knows with me on the internet at home again for the first time in almost two months I would have been up anyway [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] ) but no, I usually watch it on Saturday nights because it's on earlier but I wanted to watch it tonight.
I had really wanted Big to ask Carrie to marry him. Pull a ring out of his overcoat, preferably in Paris. However. I read the book and in the book they do end up together at the end. Sorry, should be in the TV part in Off Topic but just curious 'cus I know that's really why I'm up so late when I'm so darned tired and I got all the stuff I wanted to post on PA.com posted earlier this evening surprisingly.

Hi Cindy,
Yes.. we just watched the finale of Sex in the City too.... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] (although I am a night owl so I would have been up even if it wasn't on)
I liked the final episode [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

... and we finally learned Big's real name tonight after 6 years ... (if you were watching Carrie's cell phone ringing in the final scene)

erik, here's how stupid I am (or thick, whatever). He's been Big for how many years? Anyway, when the name John came up, I just thought that it was a *code* name for Big, forgetting that Big was really a *code* name for his *real* name. What a dunce I can be! Thank-you for posting that because I swear, even if I watch it tomorrow night, it never would have dawned on me.
I thought the Finale was very good. As I said though, romantic in me, whatever, I had wanted Big to ask Carrie to marry him. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Then I must be a dunce too.. I saw "John" on the call display and wondered who it was, and then thought "that must be a code name Carrie entered on her phone so no one will know it is Big calling"...
so I had the exact same thought as you... but then I realized "John" must be his real name.. haha I think many people had the same thoughts tonight, as after 6 years of knowing him as Big, it is easy to forget that's not his real name [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

erik, sorry, yes, I do remember that you're a Night Owl like myself, perhaps even more so. So, you escaped meeting me while I was in Toronto last week. I even thought of you as I was leaving your fair city (actually, I left Toronto at an older age than you are now, so perhaps it's both of our fair city) because I was at the bus terminal at Bay and Dundas and really, considering the amount of walking I do in Belleville, I wasn't far from you at all. My doctor's appointment was at St. Michael's Hospital and again, considering the walking thing, your area would have been no problem.
Do have thoughts of returning for Easter.
Also, since the streets were not filled with murder and mayhem as one can be led to believe and I felt quite comfortable going everywhere and even out at night, with my children (not late) in different parts of the city, let's just say, my next move will probably be back towards that way, although, as you had mentioned before, Toronto is costly. I'm looking at the GTA right now, hadn't made up my mind 'til I spent over a week there for March break. I miss Toronto. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
I almost dropped dead when I checked out real estate prices if you want to purchase a home though. Dropped dead I tell you. There are townhouses (luxury, of course), built in what I call the Stonegate area of Etobicoke (Parklawn and Berry Road, around Parklawn and The Queenway) and the starting price was $569,000.00. I was staying in that area of Etobicoke and when I saw that price, well, again, almost dropped dead on the T.T.C.
And what is it with the bus/subway/streetcar people? NONE of them all week took a transfer from me (and I had three or four each time). Then, the vehicle is littered with transfers. Since I hate litter/garbage (see Off Topic), I put them in my purse and by the end of the week I had a purse full of transfers. Finally, on almost my last night, when I went to give the bus driver at The Humber Loop the three transfers and he didn't take them I said to the kids (as if they could understand [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] ), bloody hell, no wonder the bus is littered with transfers, no drivers take them. Oh, and Jesse had asked me earlier in the week why transfers were all over the floor. AH!
Babble speak. Time for bed.

Yes.. real estate prices are crazy these days in Toronto...
And I agree... no one seems to take transfers, which results in a mess on the streetcars.
Have a good night! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
(time for me to sleep too)
