Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still alive, sans 2 tonsils (can't wait to find out their dimensions/weight from the pathologist), after the procedure yesterday. I don't recommend this for the faint of heart; the procedure itself was nothing (getting the IV inserted was the hardest part of that) but the recovery is proving to be icky. I have these huge craters in the back of my mouth and everything around them is swollen. It looks like a melon baller was involved in the removal process. And I won't even try to describe the condition of the remaining flesh...
My folks have been wonderful in keeping me company, and helping me keep track of when to take pain meds (I've heard if you get behind and the pain catches up with you, it's really hard to get on top of it again). So the pain hasn't been horrible and I haven't been alone, which is great.
I have three more little containers of cinnamon applesauce left...and I hope by the time I've eaten them, I'll be ready for something with a little more nutritive value!
