Impact of flu on ENT issues? Know its a bit obscure...

..but in case anyone has had any feedback on something similar?

dd2 has laryngomalacia, somewhat better after an op in January (she's 2.5 now) to snip cartilage, and remove tonsils and adenoids. She had terrible sleep apnoea before, and wasn't eating much. She's a lot better now, food fine, no real apnoea...but still v noisy breathing at night, and snores like a trooper.

She had the flu jab last winter (no question, the state she was in then) but obviously not available for swine flu. I've no idea whether she's much more at risk form it, or not.

Lower respiratory tract infection isn't her weak point, its more upper (she nearly died of RSV bronchiolitis at 4 weeks old).

I am going to try and talk to her surgeon on the phone this week, but wondered if anyone has any ideas??

dd's classmate has it, hence expecting it sooner or later, btw.
