So...Tuesday I ended up having to go to the ER. The swelling was out of control and I was dehydrated. The pain was just unbearable. I woke up Tuesday morning shaking and covered in sweat. My dear sweet friend H. came over and took me to the hospital and stayed with me until Bryant arrived. The gave me fluids and a ton of steroids. I left feeling really discouraged because I didn't think it had really help that much. Yesterday when I woke up ALL of the swelling was gone. The pain is much more manageable now. I am just ready to be well. I am ready to be able to eat and drink normal stuff and to have energy again. One positive thing from all of this is that I had lost 8 lbs...until I went to the ER and got pumped up with fluids. I think I'm only down about 4 - 5 lbs now. At this point - I don't care about weight. I am ready to eat normal food again. I'm hoping that soon I will be able to close the book on the whole tonsillectomy process...
My grandma is making improvements. She has been moved to a rehab facility. She has therapy from 9 - 3 everyday. I am really glad that she is able to get this type of help. I'm traveling down there tomorrow to see her.
Thanks everyone for all of the sweet comments and well wishes. It means a lot to know so many of you out there care!
