No more narcotics!

Well, Friday I took off the Fentanyl patch. After physically getting sick in the afternoon, I figured enough was enough and removed it. I have been surviving all weekend on just Tylenol. I am feeling much better, but my throat is still very sore. It feels like the muscles that are on the side of my throat are bruised. I really hurts to yawn - an aside, do you ever notice how even just typing the word y-a-w-n that it makes you do it? crazy huh? - it hurts like hell to sneeze too. I didn't realize that part. I knew about the yawn (made you do it huh?) part, as I have been fighting that daily, but yesterday I sneezed. Holy mother of all that is good! That hurt!!! So, from now on, if I have to sneeze, I am holding that one in!

On a related note, DQ woke up last night a little before 3am because she wet the bed. After getting her cleaned up and settled in on her little pull out couch on the floor in our room, I could not go back to sleep. The last time I looked at the clock, it read 4:38. BD's alarm goes off at 4:50. I got him up and promptly passed back out until 7:30. I am heading off to catch a few more hours (hopefully) of zzzz's before I get up and go to work for the first time in over two weeks. I got the doctor to at least let me work half days until my appointment on Wednesday afternoon. Then hopefully, he'll let me go back full days Thursday and Friday.

I can't even imagine how much that had to have sucked. Sorry to hear about it!

Your recovery from surgery makes me REALLY hope I never have to have my tonsils out.

Glad you are on the road to recovery though!
