When Nadia was nine months old, her doctor noticed a cyst on her uvula. We were given a referral to a pediatric ear, nose, and throat doctor who monitored the cyst for a few months. During this time, the cyst caused Nadia to have foul breath and to get sick occasionally. Eventually, the ENT doctor recommended having the uvula removed and having the cyst biopsied as a precaution. The doctor would also patch a minor hole in her eardrum as well. Surgery was scheduled months in advance for November 2, 2017. The idea of our one-and-a-half-year-old baby going under general anesthesia kept us unsettled during these months of waiting. At a pre-op appointment a couple of weeks before the surgery date, the doctor confirmed the cyst was still there.
