Life In The Fast Lane

Ask any parent of a big family and they'll tell you that having a big family is like living in the fast lane.

There probably are the same amount of happenings as in any family, but there is just more of it to go around because, well, there are just more people. Hey, it's never dull.

Wynken is going to have his adenoids removed. In the x-ray work done for beginning his orthodontia, the orthodontist noted that his adenoids looked large. She was concerned about his breathing capacity and highly encouraged me to have him seen by an ENT (whose specialty this falls under). We saw the doctor.

Wynken was a real trooper; the doctor stuck a camera up his nose to look around. His adenoids are blocking 90% of his nose breathing capacity/airway. No wonder the kid sleeps with his mouth open; chews food with his mouth open; and is such a mouth-breather. And, it could be causing sleep apnea.

Ain't it grand?
