No more tonsils, no more strep

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:23 pm by Lauren

Allen has this thing about Bill Murray. I don’t know what it is about Bill Murray movies, but I don’t quite connect with him, and I don’t think it’s the liquid vicodin.

So, here at Chez Streptococcus, I am finally strep-free and tonsil-free! On Wednesday morning, I went to the hospital at 6:30 am for my tonsillectomy. By 1:20, I was back home sipping that hydrocodone (the hard stuff) and bubble gum-flavored antibiotics (the not so hard stuff). Then I slept and slept, waking up only for medications until 10:30 the next morning.

I spent most of Thursday awake actually, which probably contributed to spending most of today asleep. I figure I have about two more days of liquid vicodin/hydrocodone, which will work out well since I do have to leave the house a couple of times on Monday. And in the meantime, I just plan on relaxing at home with my cats, fielding a few phone calls, and eating soup and ice cream.
