Thursday Two Questions

Say, Aaaaah! 4 – internet resources, tricks, and tips on surviving an adult tonsillectomy #T2Q #random

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! This morning DD#2 is having a tonsillectomy. DH and I still have our tonsils, so I have no idea what she’s up against. Naturally, you would expect nothing less of me so you know I asked Google for a little help. I got hundreds of hits, but I narrowed it down to four internet resources, tricks, and tips on surviving an adult tonsillectomy from different bloggers first-hand experiences with this matter.

I’m totally ignorant on this subject, but found what the info these bloggers shared important and useful, if faced with the removal of my tonsils. I plan to text these links to her with the hope it makes life a bit easier for her in the coming days. Maybe this info will benefit you or someone you know to get through this common childhood procedure, as an adult. This is supposedly a difficult undertaking as a grown up. So, please say a little prayer for her! 😉

Do you have your tonsils?  If not, did you have them removed as a child or an adult? What type of experience did you have?

This has been a wild week, if all goes well, I hope to share another edition of Flashback Friday tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    I had mine removed at seven years old. They gave me lots of soft vanilla ice cream. It was a kid’s dream come true. I think I spent four days in the hospital, but don’t remember much else. I hope she does well (smile).

    My BOTB is still going on, if you have time (right). No worries. (smile)

    Bill & I both have our tonsils still. Mine were always too infected or they wanted to see if I would outgrow it. When I was 14 I came down with tonsillitis yet again. It ended up as mononucleosis! I was in the hospital for three weeks and missed a whole quarter of school. I did have a home teacher, though, sent out by the school district.

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
