I had my surgery today. The before part was ok, needles and blood and all the fun stuff, but it doesn't bother me, so it was good. They took me into a room and gassed me without warning, which was spectacular. I woke up with some of the worst pain of my LIFE. But I played it off that I was fine because I wanted to go home. I've been trying to sleep all day and it's not working. :-( It hurts to swallow...badly. There's some blood in my throat that I have to keep out of there, which is always a fun way to spend time. I better be ok by Saturday, because I am really looking forward to it. Anyhow, the moral of this is, if you have a choice, don't get your tonsils out! Actually do it, it's amazing. I can breathe!
