they did say it would get worse before it got better.

disclaimer: this post ended up including a lot of bitching+whining.. sorry bout that.

yeah i woke up today and my throat hurts more than it has thus far in my tonsillectomy recovery.  bummer dudes and dudettes.  i am not stoked at all on anything right now, not even ice cream. what?! yeah i went there. i am sucking on  my  lidocaine sucker and waiting for the clock to say it is time for me to take another dose of liquid lortab and i am wondering what my throat looks like on the inside but at the same time i am afraid to look.  so i won’t.

eats!.. or something like it.

marshall came by at 10 PM last night to hang out for a bit. i polished off his nielsen’s frozen custard but didn’t take a photo.  it was probably 6 bites of vanilla w/ strawberries. he had a big juicy double cheeseburger and fries, ugh i want real food so freaking bad.  not necessarily junk food, like marshall’s, but just real food.  that i can chew and enjoy and not worry about it getting stuck in my mess of an esophagus.

at 8 AM i had a popsicle + pain meds:

and then at 9 AM i had a delicious green monster:

  • vanilla whey protein powder
  • 8th continent soy milk
  • 1/2 a banana
  • handful of blueberries
  • handful of raspberries
  • handful of spinach
  • handful of kale
  • ice

yum. i am glad i know about these bad boys.. they are so deeeelicious!

from nine to about ten thirty i went downstairs to my mom’s gym and was her personal trainer for her upper body workout + abs.  i told her what to do, and watched her work her butt off, and i felt guilty for sitting there.. penny laid in my lap most of the time.  i wish i could work out.

after that intense training sesh, i had a iced soy latte to replenish myself, since i had worked so hard.

then it was back to the lidocaine sucker.

which brings me to here and now.. and it is finally time to take some pain meds again. maybe after that i can get my throat all numbed up and do something crazy like eat something.  holy crap, i am going insane…. please say a get well soon prayer for my poor little throat!!!!

I loooove the game show network!! I’d say the Newlywed Game is probably my favourite…

My graduation is on mother’s day. So my gift to my mother is letting her watch a 2 1/2 hour graduation ceremony :P

FEEL BETTER!!! I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t eat – probably be a huge grouch! For madre’s day I plan on making her all of her favorite foods :D

Ugh- it always seems like fun to be able to have an excuse to eat ice cream, but then it hurts so bad that you don’t even want it- better to just eat the ice cream for fun! I hope you feel better :)
I think I am going to get up, go to mom’s and make her breakfast with my sister and then maybe just hang out. I’m still debating what to get her so I can’t wait to read the ideas!
