  • I had mine out when I was *thinks* six or seven. I think. lmao.

    My mom has a picture of me sipping on a Yoohoo and looking quite out of it. According to her I lived on popsicles and ice cream and bottles of Yoohoo because those were the only things that would soothe my throat.

  • My son had is out at 5. It is a very simple process it's all done with lasers now. The first day he ate only popcycles but wanted more. The next day he was up and ready to go wanting to eat everything. We went slow yogart jello broth ect.. I'm sure the dr will tell you no spicy food since he's two you do not have to worry about that. By the third day he was back to school.
