One way to get some time off from work!


Well, they've been pesky for years...the culprits behind numerous sore throats, painful bouts of strept throat and lately a cyst the size of a lima bean. My doctor tells me they really should come out so it looks like Monday morning at 10:30 I'll be saying "good-bye tonsils!" I've had my pre-op instructions (from Nurse Jackie of all people!) and my refrigerator is full of banana popsicles. I think I'm ready...wish me luck!

Hey good luck with your surgery. I hope that when the tonsils are out you will not have any more troubles.

Good luck! I had mine out almost 30 yrs ago. Back then you had to stay in the hospital overnight.

Good luck with surgery! I had mine out in 1964 when I was 11. I have to warn you though, it hurts after wards like H#%^%^%#%!Since you're an adult maybe it won't be so bad, but it's the worst sore throat you ever had. They kept telling me how much ice cream I would get to eat, so maybe I was unprepared, thinking about that. On the up side, I've never had a sore throat since and have been healthier.

Yikes... Hope once they are out you are all better again.

I lost mine at the age of eight... not much help with what it was like... I don't remember. All I know is I ate a ton of ice cream. At least that is what my mother says.

I will be thinking of you!!!!
