Surgery... But recovery sucks even more!

Like I said before, last week John had tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy last Thursday. Pre-op he was in good spirits and even let me snap a few pictures with his iPhone.



Unfortunately, recovery hasn't been as great. The first 4 days were a breeze. But days 5, 6 and 7 (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week) have been awful. He has been a great patient and taking care of him {somewhat} easy. I use the word somewhat because watching him be in so much pain has been really hard.

He is getting better. Today is day 8 post surgery and what the internet calls phase 3 which means he should start feeling better today.

Getting your tonsils and adenoids out as an adult is much harder than as a child and I am so proud of how well John has done!


  1. poor johnny boy... glad he's in phase 3 and on the up and up! =)

  2. wow he looks mortified in that first picture.

    juanito's lucky to have such a great care-taker!!

  3. I know he appreciates you taking care of him girl!

  4. Miss Kate had hers out when she was 5. It was rough when the "scabs" came off, though I can't recall which day that happened...

    Hope he's feeling better soon!
