My 4 yr old son just had his adnoids/tonsils out for snoring/apnea problems. It was the best thing we ever did. I was scared to death to do it, but I am so thankful we made the choice. If your son is having speech problems, this might also help. I've heard removing the adnoids helps so many problems. We have a little boy who sleeps as quiet as a mouse now. Good luck!
