Re: Tonsillectomy nausea CURED!!
I have taught at three different colleges, a good professor will work with your daughter. Hopefully, she will be able to keep up with some reading and the work in some of her easier classes, but in the case of a major surgery she should be able to take an incomplete or two if she gets behind. It would also be a good idea to ask the professor if you can tape the lectures, be it with a video camera or audio recorder. Ask the teacher if they can recommend a study buddy for the class as well that wouldn't mind sharing notes and discussing the lectures. There are many things that can be done including getting a graduate student tutor as an aide.
Don't stress because your daughter will feed off of that and worry too... Have your daughter talk to the teachers and feel them out. Many professors will work with you if they know you are trying your best and had to take advantage of an inconvenient surgery date. If they are going to be hard nosed.. drop the class and wait until later to take it.
Have her take a minimum full load or half time load this term and work closely with her professors. There is always the route of a medical withdrawl if needed, surgery is a valid excuse. BUT above all else let your daughter rest and recover. She will feel like a new woman after her recovery.
Best wishes on the up coming surgery date.
