My son starts in with respiratory illnesses every fall. Last spring we had his tonsils and adenoids removed in the hopes that it would help us. I'm not feeling too confident now! He really suffered with the surgery and wound up dehydrated and back in the hospital, so I'm really hoping that it was worth it. He has had croup and 2 bouts of Pneumonia in his 3 1/2 years of life. I couldn't even put a number on the many ear infections we've dealt with. We're on our second set of ear tubes! Do any of you have kids that suffer with these things?
