On February 22nd, I am scheduled to have a tonsillectomy. It's a very safe, very quick outpatient surgery. However, in adults it also has a very painful, relatively protracted recovery period. The ENT specialist who decided that I need the surgery informed me that I would not be able to talk for at least three days (which is a lot like when I got my tongue pierced, back in the day) and that for at least ten days my pain is going to be a 6/10 after I take the liquid Percocet he is going to prescribe me (apparently it will be a 9/10 without the painkillers). Thus, I am using up over half of my time off bank to spend 14 days recovering. It should be...interesting. Even more so if I hemorrhage when the scabs in my throat fall off around day nine. At least I'm double-insured, so the medical bills won't totally wipe out my bank account.

In other news, I just purchased my first sewing machine, a Brother CS-6000i. I've been using sewing machines since I was a child, but have never owned one before. I am excited.

Dude. I'm so sorry. How did you diagnose the tonsil problem? I had no idea tonsillitis was so problematic in adults. Will you have good support up there while you're recovering?

Good luck on the post-op recovery, and yay for sewing machines! The Brothers are good little workhorses in general.

*hugs* I wish you well with the anti-tonsil business! It's not fun at any age, but now, when you're old enough to smart and remember smarting so clearly? Extra double plus unfun.

But, after that, no more tonsil problems!

Sewing + percocet = disaster, BTW. Or so says the Rev, who has first hand experience in the matter.

Wishing you the best!!

I hope to have your stuff mailed home before you go in... Alas the leg was too pink. But maybe a white body would be ok blushed up for my Jury05 head? I love the lines of the body! And that ankle just keels me.

I am glad to have found out beforhand for sure.

You got the one from Tracy! :) Mine was also painted by Tracy but cost *cough* almost 3 times as much. But! She was on hold for a year and a half while I got my life together, and a drama free transaction from a local. So, I paid up without regret.

I also love the shape of Jury's eyes. I feel they make the sculpt. Now she needs a Lishe elf sister and El elf brother...

I get a lot of tonsil stones and would love to have my tonsils removed, but I had no idea the recovery period was made of so much suck. I hope it is speedy!
