Yesterday at kindy during nap time DS who is 3 struggled to breathe and according to his teachers his lips went blue and he stopped breathing for a few seconds. DS is a horrid sleeper, always has been, when he was younger we had him looked at as his snoring was worrying but I was told he was fine, nothing abnormal. It seems as he's gotten older and his tonsils are growing that he's having more and more trouble. And yesterday was the worse incident we've had. He's seeing the doctor today, getting checked out, but I think removal will be the best option. DH had his tonsils removed at a similar age from constant bouts of tonsillitis, and doesn't recall it fondly at all.
Has anyone else been through this? What am I possibly in for? Do they put 3 year olds to sleep for these things? That can't be a great thing.
Not freaking out, just want to be informed.
