Just a quick update...

Had my tonsils out yesterday morning at 9am. Surgery took about an hour - a bit more involved than they anticipated, apparently, though nothing went "wrong". The doc told my mom I will be VERY glad I had this done... later.

I've been told to expect to feel worse and worse for the first four or five days, and then to begin to improve. I'm praying that I'll feel better and better!

I am spending the first three nights with my parents, who are dutifully making sure I take my plethora of meds on schedule, and filling me up with liquids... water, juices, and home-made chicken soup :0)

Kerry has the boys at home. I've written them a detailed schedule (indoor soccer, birthday party to attend, set the clocks back tonight, lunch with Aunty Tam-Tam...), and I'm sure they'll all do fine :0) I miss them all, but this is much more restful! The plan is for him to bring the boys up here Monday morning, and I will go home, while my mom does some homeschool history with them. She'll have them again on Wednesday for a Math day. Yea, Mom/Grandma! Kerry works at home (for any who don't know) and will just have to catch as catch can, regarding work.

I surely appreciate all the prayers... keep them coming :0) !

What a smart mother you are to recuperate at your OWN mom's! The "men in your life" will do fine. Makes them appreciate us more, yes?

I continue to pray for you! Feel better soon!

Glad to hear the surgery went well!

Such a good idea to try to get some rest at your parents house.

That way, you won't hear the scattered "BANG" then "uh-oh" and get really worried :)

Hope you get better soon!

So GLAD to read that surgery went well. (Thanks for popping on for an update!):-)

What a great idea to have the kids at home while you recuperate at your mom's -- even though you will miss them all VERY much.

I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers.
