I bit a nice little portion of my tounge and lip while I was under so they are still extremely swollen and sore. And my uvula feels like a golf ball.
📸 However pretty perfect it may appear from the outside in, know that it’s not always perfect little squares in Instagram📱 I barely got through the past few days dealing with my most intensive heartache and anxiety 😿 when all I want is to protect my children from the slightest pain and discomfort 👩👧👦 Unfortunately we still had to come to this decision to have Elma’s tonsils and adenoids removed, after hesitating for years. My breaking point day 💔 started for him in blissful ignorance 🙇🏻 but ended with lotsa surprises 🎊🎈
Praise Lord 🙏🏼 everything went great! And we would like to express our appreciations to our greatest family and friends for all your well wishes, prayers and love showered on our brave little warrior 🏆 Without me and himself even realising, we are already on the road to recovery and looking forward to a life without chronic sore throats 👊🏼 #tonsillectomy #200618 #ThankyouHeavenlyFather
Tonsillectomy day 4-5: Oh. The. Pain.😫
The last couple of days, I've been eating solid soft foods like rice, pasta and white bread with butter and haven't experienced the worst pain, before now. Yesterday, my man came home so we could finally get back to our house (I've stayed at my parents house since wednesday and they've been amazing!). I did eat throughout the day but getting home made me lose my appetite. Went to bed at 22:30 after taking my pain medicine and morphine. Woke up at 3:00 with the worst pain from throat to my jaw and ears. Took some morphine and slept until 5 this morning - Woke up due to a small scab falling off. 😟
The pain is HORRIBLE! Today so far I don't feel like eating, talking or even drinking. But I know I have to stay hydrated. I take my pain meds 4 times a day + additional morphine when needed.
When thinking that it hopefully only will last 14 days make me better but I never knew it would be this horrible 😅 Though in the end, it WILL be worth it 👍
Lobster Mac&Cheese dipped into Lobster Bisque because why not?! Still on my post surgery soft food only diet but I wasn’t complaining about this meal! #datenight #lobster #foodie
I'M ALIVE GUYS! I SWEAR! Thanks to a very naked and raunchy looking George Costanza on my pyjama shirt and Bob's Burgers pants, I got a few good laughs from the nurses this morning. One of them even commented on @michaelseklund
's glasses on my arm. The laughter was very much needed to calm my nerves. I am now Tonsil free, propped up on the couch, and at home. A whole freezer on standby dedicated to me for the next 2 weeks.... my mom has never been nicer 😂. Though truth be told... I'd kill for some pumpkin soup, or cream of broccoli 😋 #yum
.... But alas, a sad cold diet is in my near future for the next 2 weeks.
Hopefully I'll be back to posting soon. But until then, I'm gonna try to keep my nausea at bay and lay low. Thank you for all the love everyone! I really appreciate it!.... now it's nap time... that anaesthetic is some really potent shit 🤣! -Ky (@friispiriit

Thanks for all the messages, texts, visits, and prayers! Cruz’s surgery went well. Coming out of anesthesia with an IV in his arm wasn’t super enjoyable, but the nurses said they’ve seen kids react worse. 😝His doctor said his tonsils were a 4 out of 4 and his adenoids were even bigger. He should be a new boy soon, who sleeps better, breathes smoother, eats more, and snores less. We’re praying for a smooth, successful recovery. Keeping a 3 year old boy from playing, or raising his blood pressure, or getting upset isn’t the easiest. We’re also praying for low temps, no bleeding, and pain management. 🙏🏼🏥👨🏻⚕️ #firsthospitalvisit #firstsurgerysincebirth #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #brave
Yesterday was such a rough day and today hasn’t been much better. Chief was so brave yesterday, but then decided that once we got home that he wasn’t gonna take his medicine 😭 It takes almost an hour to get him to take 10mls of medicine. So stressed, exhausted, anxiety is at an all time high. Hoping recovery goes more smoothly from here. #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #surgery #recovery #mommysamess #soexhausted

Hey! Remember when we used to crank orders out like no big deal?! Well we’ve definitely slowed down with all the changes around here! If you haven’t heard here’s the scoop:
1. We sold our house and moved into a tiny rental 👏🏼
2. We’re building our dream space, #polebarnhouse
3. We’re soaking up summa! ☀️ (you only get 18 of them with your kiddos and we are squeezing in lots of fun!)
4. We just found out that in a few weeks, our littlest babe will go in for her third surgery in the last 8 months 😔 but we hope it will help her stay healthier!
As always, we are so so thankful and grateful for all of you (we truly mean it!) ❤️❤️❤️ and that you’re sticking it out with us through this chaotic season! Thank you for helping us grow our dreams! We love you guys!
Claudia is in surgery now. Please keep her in your prayers! Should go smoothly, just tonsils and adenoids. 🙏🏻💖
수술 드가기전엔 사진찍어주라며 한껏 들떠있었지;;
초고속으로 마취에 드가고..
40분만에 나타나서는 괴물가튼소리내고..
1시간정도 잠들지 말라는데..
하루종일..병든 닭시키마냥 잠만자네ㅜㅜ
아이스크림 몇수저먹고 토하고..
마취가 왜케 안풀리냐ㅜㅜ
이래서 낼 집에 가긋나ㅜㅜ
니가 말을 안하니..세상이 조용하구나;;;

I don't think I've ever met someone so stubborn....he's had a mouthful of panadol for over an hr and refuses to swallow it. Sitting with a lolly in each hand that he refuses to let go of 🙈😆
This week has been a rough one. I hate seeing her sick, in pain, with a fever. I'm mentally exhausted. I wish that she was recovering smoothly. But I am thankful I am able to stay home with her. I am thankful for the extra cuddles. And I am thankful I don't have to drive around in this rainy mess. I know this will all be over soon. Until then, we cycle meds, force fluids, try to get food down, rest whenever we can. #momlife #tonsillectomy #mybabygirl #gingeradventures
Surgery went well today. At home recovering with all the applesauce, ice packs, pain meds, popsicles, and Netflix. The pain isn’t too bad yet, but is supposed to get pretty intense over the next few days. Thank you to all the amazing souls who sent well wishes, checked in after surgery, and are sending love and support. Grateful for my babe @gus_gz
and my mom for going above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Feeling very loved. 🙏🏼✨🍧
Staying up till midnight eating snacks and filling the belly. All eating stops at 12am, then he can drink up until 10am. We have to be at the hospital at 12pm and surgery is at 1:55pm 😬😬 Momma is a hot mess! Hoping I can get some decent sleep tonight. #surgery #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #eattillmidnight
Pray for this little baby tonight. She’s TRYING to get to sleep so she can be up for her #tonsillectomy
tomorrow morning but instead she’s wide awake with a very nervous tummy.
Today is all about slushees & snuggles with my little man..He had his adenoids & tonsils removed! #byebyestrepthroat
Get you a best friend who takes off work and drives down from Denver to pick you up from surgery and stays the night to take care of you. I couldn’t ask for a better life long friend. ❤️
Doc says baby girl healed beautifully from her surgery. Thank God! Sleeping better, no snoring, no complaints about ears and swallowing, no stuffed nose, more energy, just all around thumbs up 👍🏾😁 I was terrified when the ENT recommended that she get her tonsils and adenoids removed, but now I’m extremely grateful we did. ❤️ #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #followup #GodIsAwesome
Am finally feeling a bit calm enough to write this post. Settling in for another night at Lady Cilento Hospital after probably our scariest parenting moment to date. 5 days post tonsillectomy op, Tayls had a major bleed this morning at home. Although very rare, we knew this was one of the risks of having tonsills removed but of course we also thought it would never happen. Man were we wrong. After a lights on, sirens blaring ambo ride to the emergency room I had to watch a room full of at least 10 doctors and nurses get my little girl's bleeding under control. At which point I broke. As a parent, it's not something I ever want to see again. Hats off to the staff at Lady Cilento for looking after my TMac so amazingly well for the second time. They stabilised her quickly and after a long day of crossing our fingers for no more bleeds she is now in the clear, won't need more surgery and we should be able to go home again tomorrow. Update on the patient: she is doing just fine watching Friends re-runs, eating especially bought sushi (no hospital food for this madam) and sending me down to the shops multiple times for chocolate paddlepops. She really is such a brave kid and has bounced back so well considering how scary it was. Me on the other hand, I'll probably have nightmares for weeks. #ourlittletrooper

These have been my saving grace the past 3 days as I recover from a tonsillectomy. You don't realize how much those little suckers in the back of your throat hurt until they yank em out! ...
Between binge watching Netflix, a metric butt load of puppy snuggles and the softest foods on the planet I have managed to stay (moderately) comfortable with my oily stash at my bedside. ...
Lavender, frankincense and copaiba layered on my throat and jaw area are keeping me from looking a tad bit like a squirrel with a mouthful of nuts 🐿️🐿️ #tonsillectomy #ylessentialoils #puddingfordays #bingingtheoffice
My pain was the worst it’s been today and it’s been struggle street. And then I receive this beautiful package from the beautiful @__misspolly
and I’m all happy and loved and feeling much better. I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful best friend! This is just so lovely and thoughtful and was desperately needed. 😍😍😍 I can’t stop smiling now. She was even in kahoots with my mum xD
My lovely boyfriend is bring over my DVDs and charger which I left at home tonight so I’ll get lots of cuddles tonight.
Funny how all the pieces just fall together with wonderful and fantastic people when you really need it most. So keen to just feel better #friends #carepackage #tonsillectomy #tonsillectomyrecovery #love #soup #dogs #tea #pjs #randr #awwwman #imsolucky
