Re: pfapa

not sure if you've seen my other posts, but my daughter had a t&a on nov. 5 and has been fever free since then. she was only 2 1/2 at the time so we were a little concerned doing the procedure when she was so young. however, she did great!! recovery was a piece of cake and i don't regret my decision for one second!!
to go 3 whole months fever free is worth it!!
