Tonsillectomy Recovery

One comment

I recently had a tonsillectomy; hence, my being M.I.A. lately. The feeling reminiscent to shards of glass stuck in your throat for a week kind of disrupts ones mood, I’ll be honest.

However, I’m exactly 2 weeks post-op and feeling better than ever. I owe it all to a fab blog I discovered The Healing Blossom. She is dedicated to health and wellness, and gives a play-by-play of her recovery from a tonsillectomy, as an adult.

I was so grateful to have read her story because it totally helped ease my anxiety. {AHHHHH!}

I followed pretty much exactly what she did and I can’t believe how quickly I recovered!

So remember this next time you find yourself in the market for tonsil extraction or any major surgery for that matter.

What I lived on for 10 days

>Aloe + Coconut Water, with crushed ice from Sonic ((Yes, Sonic sells big bags of ice for only $1.75. My beautiful mother drove across town to get me this magical ice and it is the best evs!!)) was my go to drink all day. I swear this it what healed me so fast.

Aloe has soooo many nutritional and beauty benefits:

+Can be used topically on skin to treat sunburns: nourishes and hydrates the skin.

+Boosts metabolism to promote weight loss

+Excellant detox for a natural way to cleanse your colon

+Combats free radicals that contribute to illness and anti-aging

+Reduces/prevents inflammation

What I also discovered during my recovery is that my mani/pedi was flawless for a whole 8 days! No joke.

My recovery mani/pedi inspiration came from my fellow blogger friend Janesfashion Blog. Follow her, she’s a doll. I’m wearing Turquoise & Caicos by Essie and Pirouette My Whistle by O.P.I 

So if you want to preserve those beautifully painted digits, I suggest lying on the couch as much as possible, being waited on hand & foot, no dishes, no laundry, don’t deal with your kids, or fussing of any sort, and you’re good to go. Ha!

My gorgeous orchids sent from my beautiful friend, Ahsue. Their color was to die for! And they totally brightened my week.

Well, I sure have missed blogging and all of you. I’ve been working on some great stuff and I can’t wait to share!
