My Tonsillectomy

My Tonsillectomy

As you may know, on Saturday I was booked in to have my tonsils removed. Which was my first surgery!   I left work at midday on Friday as I wanted the time to (try to) relax, and do a few last minute errands. I wasn’t the most relaxed but I wasn’t too bad.   Friday […]
