we as a family are hard at work to raise funds for my daughter to have her tonsils removed. we have been to numerous state hospitals to no avail, there is either no space, no date or no doctor. she is suffering with reoccurring tonsillitis, sleep apnea, sever oxygen deficiency during sleep and has developed some mental retardation due to low oxygen to the brain and lack of rem sleep. she is 7 years old and can hardly enjoy a normal life due to constant coughing, blocked sinuses, breathing difficulties and choking hazard because of the enlarged tonsils, we desperately need to get them removed. medical bills are piling but not an inch closer to getting them removed. we hope to be able to afford a private doctor to organise and do the operation ASAP.
