I visited my best friend this weekend because she had her tonsils removed last Friday. I was in shock in how much pain she was still in after a week of the surgery! She was told it would only take three days before she will feel like eating again. She is now on the 6th day and she still can only eat chicken broth! I took her out to try a smoothie and she took one sip and screamed that it burned. I felt to helpless. She can't even take pain medication because she can't eat any food with it. She told me when she tried to take the pain medication she just sat in the bathroom and threw up for hours. Just the simple act of yawning was killing her. So unfair! I did bring my keyboard to her because she has been wanting to learn for awhile, so I guess I helped her feel better a little bit. I hope I never ever have to get my tonsils removed.
