I was going to tell you about how I wore flats with shorts last week and I felt awkward about it the moment I walked out of the house, but I figured that you might want to hear about Janie’s surgery instead.
We’re on day six post-surgery and Janie’s doing okay. The surgery itself went great — her tonsils were even bigger than the doctor thought and Janie got lots of “oohs!” and “aahs!” over them from the 30,000 people that came to see her pre-surgery. It’s really too bad that they don’t let you take them home in a jar any more.
The recovery has been okay — she did have more than just ice water, as she vowed she would do, and in the first 48-hours after her surgery, she ate dozens of popsicles and enough rainbow sherbet to keep her from being in too much pain. Plus, a regiment of the good old Advil/Tylenol rotation and a smidge of Oxycodone on the side helped keep things in check. There have been times when the pain has spiked and those moments haven’t been fun… I think yesterday was the first day that we didn’t have tears, so I’m hoping we’re on the upside of things.
Time will tell how the -ectomies will help — hopefully Janie will be more rested thanks to getting those huge ass tonsils out of there and her sinuses will clear out easier when she does get sick, keeping the ear infections at bay.
