Hi Girls. Wanna know how I am going to survive the Thanksgiving temptation? I've got the best solution in the world!!!......
I'm getting my tonsils out on Thursday. My deviated septum will be straightened out at the same time.
Ya, it's not really the best solution for getting through the holidays.
Have any of you gotten your tonsils out as an adult? I had my freak out moment Sunday evening. Hopefully it's out of my system and I can think clearly now.
I am usually sick about 4 months out of the year with throat and sinus related problems. In fact, I have had a sore throat every day for the last 6 weeks. My wise mother put everything into perspective during her last pep talk to me yesterday. She reminded me that it was indeed worth it...that in my lifetime if I continue being sick like I have in the past, I will have spent the equivalent of 16 years sick. That was all I needed to hear.
So, my next 10 days will be spent in bed, drinking whatever my throat can tolerate. No Thanksgiving dinner for me.
I don't mind.
The typical Thanksgiving menu is not my most favorite. I'm more of a Christmas dinner kind of gal.
I can do this...I can do hard things that scare me to death!!!
This will also be my first break from HWHL since Audrey started the challenge. I will miss you guys while I sleep a week of my life away. See you all next month!!!
