You are on the right track girl. They try and wait till the baby is 3 and 30 pounds. If they have the sleep apnea from what I was told with mine, they will admit them to the hospital overnight. Its a good thing. Since yours is so young they are trying to shrink them with the steroids first, to try to avoid it. They may or may not be able to. But the tonsils/sleep apnea have been linked to hyperactivity. My first 2 sons have had their adnoids out at 18 months, and my older son had his tonsils out at 2 1/2. I am going through the same thing you are with my 2nd son now 2 1/2 yr old. They are trying to wait as long as they can for tonsilectomy. Dr Tseng is the best. Such a great bedside manner. Makes you feel very comfortable. He has an office in Frisco and in Plano- ###-###-####. Between my 2 boys I have used him 5 times, for tubes, adnoids and tonsils. Good luck!!
