Just an Update

I just wanted to Thank everyone for thinking about me! As of right now Tuesday, the day of my surgery was the best. Wednesday started out a little shaky, got a little better as the day went on, and then took a turn for the worse! I got horribly sick and was throwing up everything I tried to eat. It felt like my throat was being cut out, because it hurt so bad. Thursday was ok, I didn't get sick at all, so that was a big plus. But my pain has been getting worse and worse, because I am afraid to take a full dose of it, because I am not sure if that is what made me sick or not. Today has been a little bit better but I have been sleeping most of the day, the sleepless nights have finally caught up to me. On top of all my pain and being sick, I got a phone call today from my work. They wanted me to come into work today and tomorrow!! All I could think of was "Are you crazy!!" I just couldn't believe they would call and ask that knowing that I had surgery and that I wasn't even sure if I would be there on Monday.

Anyways, I think everything is heeling properly. However I am so sick of eating jello and drinking powerade. When I was sick jello was the only thing I was finally able to keep down, so I am sticking with that just in case. I am truly blessed to have all of you in my life, and to know that you are all thinking about me.

Megan's Tonsils are gone!!

We wanted to give an update on how Megan was doing so far....
The surgery itself was very short and went well. She has been resting all afternoon, thanks to the roxicet. Here she is resting on the couch with her prayer shawl from Grandma. From what we hear the first two days are rather minor but it is the few days following that we are not looking forward to.

I have to go back to work on Thursday but she will be in good hands with Jordy. I have already made her some pumpkin pie and some jello stuff. Tomorrow I am going to make a big bowl of mashed potatoes. I had to bring over my blender to make shakes. Sounds like a good excuse to me to drink lots of chocolate shakes.
This reminds me of when she was little and I took care of her when she was sick. It seems like it was yesterday.

Preparing For The Week To Come

Last week I went to the doctor for a constant sore throat, I went strait to an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) doctor, because I assumed that is where they would have sent me anyway. The appointment was going well, until the doctor asked if I was tired alot and if I got really bad sinus headaches. Well both answers were yes. The response "What are you doing tomorrow, you need surgery as soon as possible". I have to get my tonsils out because I have tonsillitis so bad that my body is trying to fight it off, but is really making my body weaker because my body can't fight it off. I am going in for surgery on Tuesday morning in Medford.

So in preparation for this next week I went groceries shopping, and it is not very easy to get only things that are soft or plain liquid. According to the doctor I won't even be able to eat scrambled eggs until late Thursday. The pictures below are what I will be living on for the next 5-6 days. He said I can try to some things like Macaroni and Cheese and Eggs but I won't be able to eat very much.
Since my favorite ice cream is Mint Bon Bon, and that has chocolate chunks in it, he said I can't eat that so I got rainbow sherbet instead. However with how cold it is supposed to be this week I am not so sure I will be eating very much of this.

And the rest of my liquid/very soft food diet. MMMM don't you wish you could eat like this for a week. I would rather it be steak, burgers and french fries. So if you want to stop I will be home all week, but I won't be able to talk very much. And yes Jordy says it will be a peaceful week, haha but he has to do all the dishes! ;)
