She needed an IV for severe dehydration.
They took her for a CT scan.
They thought she might have a hidden abscess behind her tonsil.
Instead they found that she had a sinus infection, an ear infection in both ears,
AND severe tonsillitis (we already knew that.)
Then they swabbed up her nose and down her throat.
She kinda hated that.
Those tests showed she had mycoplasma pneumonia and adenovirus.
That's kinda a lot to have wrong with you at once.
The infected tonsils were essentially creating a germ factory.
Her tonsillectomy for January 4 got cancelled because they were worried she would end up on a ventilator if they operated.
She was sent home with a months worth of antibiotics.
One of them tasted so badly she threw up.
In my mouth. (I had it open, cheering for her.)
It got all over my face too.
First time in five years she's ever thrown up.
I now consider us even - I didn't believe her throat hurt, she threw up in my mouth.
Fair and square.
We got rescheduled for another tonsillectomy on February 8 . . . tomorrow.
She still complains of her throat hurting every day.
Only now I believe her.
