it looks like the last time i blogged was when i was sick a couple of months ago. i'd like to say that i got better and have been so extremely busy doing interesting and exciting things but that's just not true. no, instead i've been sick on and off pretty much all year and have mostly just been working and trying to relax when i'm not working. in 9 days i am having surgery to remove my tonsils and adenoids as well as to remove dead tissue from my maxillary sinuses and open them up. the hope is that once my sinuses are able to drain better i might not get so many sinus infections. and apparently my tonsils are in pretty bad shape. just gigantic with scar tissue. lovely, i know. i am definitely looking forward to no more sore throats and possibly no more (or at least not as many) sinus infections. what i'm not looking forward to is 2-3 weeks of recovery. it's going to suck but i know it will be worth it in the end. i'm going to read my kindle and watch lots of netflix during the recovery period. oh, and take lots of liquid vicodin.
