Although my blog seems like it! Since my computer crashed a couple weeks ago it has taken forever to get it back up. It took about 1 week to even get it back running. My hubby got the files off it that i wanted and weren't backed up. Then he tried a few things but the drive was bad. So he switched the drive out. He had another one b/c back when this was his computer he needed a faster drive so he switched it out. I have most things back to normal. However my drive says it has no more room for the rest of my stuff. Not sure why b/c the drive is the same size. SO I have had to move some stuff over to another computer drive and then my husband will burn them to DVD's so I can delete some of my stuff. My computer does not burn DVD's or I'd do it myself. All that to say, I'm still not up and running like normal yet.
I had my tonsils and adenoids taken out yesterday morning. The doc said my tonsils were pretty high and they were inverted. So instead of a 30 surgery it took about 1 hour. They usually prescribe liquid meds - which is a good thing I have problems with pills anyway. They also give out a script for a pill in case the liquid is not strong enough. So when I got my scripts they were all pills. My husband asked about it and they said that the doc did that because he figured I'd be in a lot of pain since they were inverted and I'm guessing he had to do a lot of digging! But we asked for the liquid anyway. It seems to be working just fine for me. I'm really surprised that I am not in that much pain. I figured I would not be able to talk or barely swallow after surgery. But all I felt was a little lump in my throat and a little off balance from being under. Today I feel OK as well. The lump feels bigger and a little tender to swallow today but that's it. The meds make me sick to my stomach. Last night I figured I would try to eat food with them to see if that helped. It did not. I ended up throwing it all up about an hour later. But surprisingly it didn't burn my throat like fire like I thought it would. I'm on pain meds, antibiotic, and steroids. They nurse said day 3 is the worse then day 5-7 the pain gets a little worse b/c the scabs change. All in all though this surgery is not nearly as painful as I thought it would be. knock on wood!! Maybe it's because I have endured so much strep throat. An I mean BAD strep throat. It must have prepared me. The in laws are here this week to help with the kids. So that is a big help to me.
I have pictures I will share when my computer is back to normal. They will be of my lovely throat!
Have a good week.
