Surgery went well. I am alert, oriented, and in MUCH pain. I cannot swallow at all - anything I drink right now comes out my nose. My tonsils were HUGE, much larger than the doctor thought, and growing BACKWARDS (into the flesh of my throat, not out into my mouth like they're supposed to, so most of each tonsil was hidden and he didn't know it was there until he started the operation). I got to see them after they took them out. @_@ The surgeon sent them on to a lab for testing, to try and figure out why they were so strangely situated. I have two massive holes in the back of my mouth. My mouth also tastes like burned ME (no stitches, just cauterization). The two weeks of suckage have officially begun.

On the plus side, no bleeding at ALL post-op, which is a really good sign.

That is great news re: alive, no bleeding.

Weird that they were so big! Good thing for testing to make sure nothing crazy was happening.

And I totally failed at my goal of finishing up your goodies before you went in.

I'm so relieved to hear from you, K. Sorry about the pain and suckage, though. You have down time now, yes? Do you find you're able to read at all ATM?

So good to see you're up and ticking again! Hope the suckage part is minimal for you, and pain levels manageable with meds, and that they sort out what went odd with the tonsils.

Eek, I'm relieved to hear you're alive and not bleeding, at least! Wish there was something I could do to alleviate the suckage more for you, though. :S

Keep us updated on how you're doing?

So, no only are you alive and well but... I have to ask: are you delicious?

As someone who has recently tasted nasty herself, if "nasty" isn't considered a technical term, it damnwell needs to be.

Let me also suggest that companies making organic butter make the expiration dates easier to read.
