Hope you’ve had a good weekend. I know I have been a little absent lately… I’m still recovering from my tonsillectomy a few weeks ago.
Today is Day 12 of my recovery and I finally feel like I have turned a corner. I’ve been able to decrease the amount of pain meds I’ve been taking, I’m sleeping longer through the night and I’m able to eat anything that is pureed. I knew going into this that adults do not recover from this like kids do, and I was prepared for the first week to be pretty crappy, but this has really exceeded my expectations… and not in a good way.
Even though I’m feeling better, I’ve really been trying to relax and get a lot of rest this weekend.
Yesterday, I went with K to Sonic to pick up another bag of crushed ice. I have been living off of that stuff! This is my 4th bag. We stopped by Starbucks on the way home and I got a vanilla Frappuccino. I have not been that into milkshakes or ice cream too much but the Frapp is where it’s at.
I just started eating solid food in the past few days, and I’ve mostly been eating pureed foods and soups. But today I was feeling really good and told K that I wanted to go out for dinner. I browsed a few menus online to make sure I would have something to eat, and we ended up going to Hickory Tavern. I got shrimp & grits with a side of mashed potatoes.
I can eat most things at this point (except chips and crackers) as long as I chew things up REALLY well, so I decided to order something other than soup. I’m getting kind of tired of soup It felt really good to eat some “real” food with a little bit of texture, although I ended up taking most of my meal home to eat as leftovers.
At least it was nice to get out of the house!
Tonight, I’m planning on watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta and going to bed early. Hope you have a great night! <3
