I'm getting my tonsils taken out on July 15. This is a very good thing, as I am a frequent strep throat customer, and strep for me is particularly bad. Lots of cold sweats, shaking, vomiting, you get the picture. Knowing that I don't have to endure that again makes surgery totally worth it.
I'm hoping that my tonsils weigh 12 pounds each, and that the doctor finds them located on my outer thighs. Keep your fingers crossed.
