he's finally getting his tonsils out on Wednesday

Tyler, my husband, is getting his tonsil out tomorrow. After 4 cases of strep in 3 months and giving it to the whole family, the doctor finally consented to cutting those puppies out. I had mine out at 21 and well, it was like swallowing barb wire for about 2 weeks and then a bad sore throat for the next week after that. But he had his appendix out while I was undergoing chemo two years ago and he did amazingly well. He bounces back super fast and feels very little pain. He gets that from his mom I think. Lucky him! I'm a total wimp when it comes to surgically induced pain. Anyway, the one major risk with tonsillectomies as an adult is excessive bleeding. He's had a priesthood blessing, but it always adds to a blessing when prayers of faith are offered as well. So if you think of him Wednesday August 27th and wouldn't mind offering a little prayer, we'd appreciate it. We'll be up early, he's the first one in line!

Oh! Good luck with all of that. I will be thinking of your family and I hope Tyler recovers quickly. Maybe this won't be anything for him since he's had strep so many times...TORTURE!!!

Keep us posted on how it goes.
