Maggie has had problems with her throat for a while now - we got to the doctors office and he took one look in her mouth and said "Wow, those need to come out"
So - as soon as her schedule allowed - she had a tonsillectomy. We anticipated that it would be routine, but it has not exactly gone according to plan. A trip to the ER for IV fluids and a morphine drip put her back on track though.
These are photos of the pre-op questionnaire. Click to make them bigger so you can see how seriously she was taking this whole thing - I am betting that no one at the hospital even reads these forms!
a couple photos before...
and a couple after.
It has been exactly one week now, and she still feels terrible - however, she didn't throw up all day and has had some solid food - YAY FOR OATMEAL AND SCRAMBLED EGGS!!!
Thanks so much to everyone who has sent cards, brought gifts of balloons, shakes, pudding, monkeys and baskets of treats, and especially those who have paid her a quick visit. She has terrific friends!
