I have strep throat again.   Seeing a specialist this afternoon and have a feeling I will be saying goodbye to my genetically massive tonsils in the none too distant future.  In the meantime I am thinking happy thoughts and taking happy photos “through the viewfinder”.



This little hand making art makes me smile every time.3573754038_2f552369e4_o

Turtle’s name?  Pickles, OF COURSE!


Edit:  Thanks all for your kind words, you guys rock!  The steroids and anti-biotics are working their magic and I am feeling much better.  I will be getting my tonsils out in August.  The doctor said it’s a 2 week recovery process.  Anyone else had their tonsils out?  How long did it take you?

    Glad you are going ahead with the operation; untimely as it is! What can we do to help?

    Oh man, I hope you feel better soon!

    one of my best girlfriends used to get strep throat all the time. When she finally got her tonsils out the doctor said they were the biggest tonsils he had ever seen. Like golf balls.

    Take it easy this week.

    It will take you longer to recover because you’re old.


  8. Sarah Says:

    Yep. It is a longer recovery for grown-ups than for kids. I had mine out (along with adnoids) at 16 and I was down for a bit over a week, if I remember right. But, the upside was lots and lots of milkshakes!

    Feel better!
