C-Bear's Tonsils are OUT

Finally, the stinky tonsils are out of C-Bear's head. And they took her adnoids for good measure.

These little bits of flesh have supposedly been the cause of chronic sore throats, life long swollen tonsils, poor sleep and bad breath for her whole life. In the consult after the surgery, the surgeon said they definitely needed to come out.

She did great and was very entertaining under the influence of several dopey drugs - she laughed a lot. The surgery took only 30 minutes but all told we spent 4.5 hours at the hospital getting prepped and recovering from anesthesia.

Now, she's not laughing so much but she is a good patient. She especially likes the unlimited ice cream and pudding. It should take about a week to recover and return to school.
