The Princess' Tonsillectomy

On Tuesday The Princess had her tonsils and adnoids removed. She had such HUGE tonsils and adnoids that she struggled at night to breathe and snored ever so LOUDLY. The doctor was quite impressed with the size of the tonsils/adnoids. The Doctor said that the size of tonsils were rated on a scale of 1-4, with 4 being the highest. He gave The Princess' tonsils a "4" because there wasn't a higher number to assign them to. He said that if she were to get any swelling of her throat from an infection, etc. that it would most likely close her throat. So with all those things in mind we decided to move forward with the operation. Everything went well and the outpatient surgery center was awesome.

The Princess is doing really well. She has been eating and drinking without much discomfort. However, my carniverous Princess doesn't think much of her liquid/soft foods diet! She really wants to eat something more substantial like a piece of fried chicken with french fries! She is loving all of the extra attention she is getting and milking it for all she can. She will be out of preschool for the next week. She likes having Mama and the house to herself while the others are at school.
When the cat (The Queen) is away, the mouse (The Princess) will play (sit on The Queen's throne)!

Sh-h-h! Don't tell The Queen!
