Home and Resting

Well... My tonsils have been removed.

The surgery itself actually went a lot better than I thought it would.
They were late in taking me back due to me having a low fever....but it wasnt that high...so they went ahead and took me.
I actually made it into the operation room without having been sedated first! It was surreal!
Seriously....usually I freak out so much that I cant calm myself down.... this time though...with my moms help.. I stayed relatively calm!
Even coming out of the anesthesia wasnt too bad this time. I told them that I have gotten mean in the past and that it was difficult for me coming out...so they must have done something differently for me this time.
The pain afterwards was pretty damm bad.... but after a very nice little shot.... it was made all better.
Of course all good things come to an end....
I have quite a bit of pain....but it's not the worst I've ever had in my life... or in my throat for that matter. I'll see how I am able to sleep...to see how my throat actually feels.
It is mostly manageable with the pain meds they gave me.
Hopefully I feel the same way tomorrow.
According to my surgeon though.... I'm gonna feel a LOT better tomorrow.
Hope she is right!

Nuff about me... my kids are not taking my absence well... especially when they know I'm home but I wont come out of my bedroom. I am impressed though that our little lady is sleeping with her daddy! There is a first for everything!
Hopefully tomorrow I can at least spend a few minutes with the kids.... it's just difficult when you are still feeling the effects of the anesthesia and in pain from the surgery and such... toddlers dont usually do well with boundaries. I'll just have to be extra lovey when I feel better.

I will say though.... McD's vanilla shake ROCK!!!!! They are great for Lunch and for Dinner!!!!

Thanks for those thinking about me today!!!
