If you’ve been following over at G & G then you probably know that we got a bunch of snow in CLT last night. School is cancelled for the rest of the week and most of the city was closed today. This is the first big snow Lily and Beams have seen in a few years.
In other news, earlier this week I saw an ENT for some throat issues I’ve been having since last June. I’ve been having a feeling of something stuck in my throat, tonsillitis, and a sore throat. He recommended that I get a tonsillectomy and now I’m deciding whether or not I want to do it. Basically there will be no other way to improve my symptoms if I don’t. He said that the surgery is very routine and simple, and would completely alleviate all of my issues.
The reason I’m spending a lot of time thinking about it is because the recovery is supposed to be very painful in adults. Someone described the feeling as their throat being on fire while being stabbed with a knife for 7 days straight. It probably doesn’t help that I just came across an article about adult tonsillectomies with 10 pages of comments about how people said it was the worst pain they’ve felt in their lives. My doctor said if I could just make it through the first 2 weeks then I would be okay after that, but the thought of being in that much pain definitely makes me rethink everything. Stay tuned!
