Yesterday I went to the hospital at 11:30am to have my tonsils removed. The instructions I had were not to eat after 7:30am so I had got up early to have a big breakfast. Just hanging round at home waiting for the call from the hospital I kept nearly snacking...i'm used to eating constantly! I was at least allowed to drink water till 11:30.
Ali took me down and I was a little nervous, she couldn't stay and I put in a little dayroom with others to wait. I was glad i'd brought my book and was in and out to talk to various medical peeps. They organised some cream for my hands as I was worried about the needle which was nice of them.
I was first on the list so was taken down just after 1:30, the nurse taking me down had her tonsils out and made me feel a lot better about how i'd feel afterwards. I don't remember much else, we were chatting while they put drugs in me and that was it. I woke up in a recovery ward feeling thirsty with a very sore throat but otherwise that was it. They took me up onto the ward and I was able to change into my PJ's. I felt hungry, thirsty and very tired. I was able to sip water but it was too noisy to sleep. Dinner came, sausage and mash, I managed two bits of sausage and about a tablespoon of mash. Eating was just too hard, I was struggling to swallow, I also found it hard to keep my eyes open.
My mum and Ali arrived at 6:30pm for visiting hours and were allowed to take me home at about 8ish. I. Felt a bit nauseous walking at first, but a sit down and I was fine. Straight to bed and sleep. I woke up loads in the night but this morning managed a couple of weetabix and all bran for breakfast. Trying to keep sipping water now.
