That's what I got.
I have ugly yucky tonsils. I had bad ones for years, but really never knew what to do about it. I mostly just ignored them till we moved here to Alberta, where my Tonsils yuckiness and the dry climate conspired to make Winters Sick-time for me. Today I went to see a specialist who didn’t have to look at them twice to decide that they needed to come out. They are what they call Cryptic Tonsils, in that they have crevices, where gunk collects and it can’t be treated by anti-biotics. We scheduled the Tonsillectomy for the soonest possible date, Oct 13. So a week before my 28th birthday I will be having a surgery most people have by the time they are 18. I will have to stay overnight at the hospital after surgery, which is a good thing in my mind. I hate outpatient surgery, where a patient and their family are thrown into questionable recovery, hours after coming to.
After scheduling this I am very glad that we are celebrating my 28th early by going to the Sting-Annie Lennox Concert on Canadian Thanksgiving. It will mean a busy week, hopefully not too stressful on the girls.
