I am not doing very well at getting going this morning. I am sorry you are unable to settle jynier you have such an appreciation of the beauties of nature, would it help to bring them forward and think of them as you go to sleep, to set a pleasant vibe. I had an app that talked you into relaxation and played natural sounds, that helped, I thought.

Minimammoth Tue 16-Apr-13 08:33:10

Oooo. kitty that woke me up. Thanks.

SummerDad Tue 16-Apr-13 09:27:32

Hey Mini sorry mate for not including you on the list of appreciation, I don't seem to do anything properly these days thanks to the fuzziness you are such a darling part of the night cult, not possible to exclude you grin just woke up now and my throat seems to hurt have to get another dose of the pain killer I hope this only kills the pain hehehe

KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 16-Apr-13 09:30:20

Are you on the ice cream too dad?

Minimammoth Tue 16-Apr-13 09:52:38

Thanks Dad. I would def. go for the ice cream jelly cure. Gargle with red sage?

SummerDad Tue 16-Apr-13 09:54:49

Kitty no ice cream at all, this apparently slows down the recovery as advised by my fabulous consultant. I know it is a bit against the tradition of tonsillectomy grin

SummerDad Tue 16-Apr-13 09:58:49

hehehe mini may be times have changed, my consultant advised me to keep eating normally just avoiding stuff which might sting i.e spices and citrus juices and to be honest, with a nice steady stream of Codeine I have been fine so far hehehe. It was a bit disappointing to know after the surgery that I need to avoid ice cream though grin

Minimammoth Tue 16-Apr-13 11:17:30

Ah well. You will have to stick to rules set by fab. consultant. Just visualise the ice cream. It's less fattening.

themidwife Tue 16-Apr-13 11:20:18

Oh bugger that Dad - the least you can hope for after a tonsillectomy is some bloody ice cream!! worth prolonged recovery in my book grin

SummerDad Tue 16-Apr-13 12:06:46

mini and midwife all I can visualise right now is that I am surrounded by some fab ladies and rest disappears in the haze ... lol

KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 16-Apr-13 12:32:14

Prolonged recovery leading prolonged ice cream eating?

I'm sorry, I'm failing to see the problem grin

dad stop visualising ice creamy hills wink.

<norty dad>
