Our 12 year old son is scheduled for a tonsillectomy and adnoid removal in early Oct. We are blessed to be employed and to have insurance. We also have a huge deductible and thus will need almost $1000 to prepay the surgeon and surgeon center. I know that GOD has this, but I need to let the worry and stress go.
