"The `O, MY' in Tonsillectomy & Adenoidectomy: How to Prepare Your Child for Surgery" is a great tool to help you understand what will be happening to your child, why they are performing the surgery, and what you need to know to be better prepared in caring for your child after the surgery is performed. "The Ultimate Preparation List" and "Caregiver's Organizer," which are included, make it easy to have yourself prepared so you can focus all of your attention on your child. Regardless of the time-frame you are dealing with for the upcoming surgery, "The "O, MY" in Tonsillectomy & Adenoidectomy" will take you from several months away or days away and lead you through the path to make the surgery non-traumatic for your child.
