So the surgery went fine. I'm in some pain, I can't swallow well, but the surgeon told Matt and Mom that the tonsils were "big and nasty" and had to go.

I am on a lot of meds - they make me feel kind of chill and vague, but sleepy? Not so much - which, add to the fact I'm trying to stay hydrated, I'm constantly having to pee.

So, popsicles, meds, drinking, peeing and occasionally dozing off.

For another nine days.

Also, my throat looks cavernous without all the tonsils in there -they really must have been huge.

Don't worry, no medical pix to follow. Maybe some of the parents, Matt and the beasties, though.
