Day 1979 - Recovering from Tonsillectomy

It was another trip to the hospital today ...

Poor Darbs is still struggling with his recovery.  It was a week ago that he got he tonsils and adenoids taken out, as well as what they referred to as a "bilateral outfracture and cautery to inferior turbinates" (which has something to do with trimming the cartilage inside his nose I think).  Anyway he hasn't eaten for a week and is struggling to get fluid in his system. With 5 kg weight loss in 7 days I decided a medical assessment might be in order.  He looks so fragile! The bottom line is that what he's going through is pretty normal but we got more pain meds in any case as well as a miracle throat numbing gel and anti-nausea medication which gave him enough respite to eat a few bites of a Vegemite sandwich.  That's good news! Plus he's not dehydrated so all is good with the world.  We're back at home and on the couch again.  Fingers crossed he's on the up and up ...
