Thank you for your query.

Your description suggests that your daughter has sleep apnea due to enlarged adenoids and tonsils following bouts of upper respiratory tract infection. At this age the bouts of URTI tend to reduce and over time the enlarged adenoids and tonsills shrink. However if the sleep apnea persists then adenoidectomy will be advised.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
