Obviously, from my lack of posting you can probably tell that this tonsil removal has pretty much taken over my life. Yesterday and the day before were by far the worst, where my pain (on a scale from 1 to 10) was at a consistent 8-9 all day long. I won't go into details because everything about this surgery is just nasty. And if you've had it, then you know. But, today I'm feeling better AND I got my prescription refilled so now the stress of "omg my drugs are running out and I'm still in too much pain and if I run out my body is just going to voluntarily kill itself and omgomgomgomgomg" is gone. (Real texts sent to Evan. He loves me so much right now.)

Anyway. For the past couple of days Evan has brought the kitties (and mama) in our bed to hang out with us for a little while. Apparently baby kitties don't potty (or I haven't found it yet?) so I don't worry about that. We just bring them in and snuggle up with their furry faces and let them climb all over. It's the cutest thing ever. We also recently learned that Snap is terrified of the kitties. If I pick one up she books it out of the room. So I'm making sure to really love on her because I think she's a titch jealous. Ginger, on the other hand, has become the father figure. If she's on the other end of the house and a kitty starts crying she runs to its aide. Sybil is so good with the dogs, she hasn't tried to hide the babies once. She lets Ginger get all close and personal, like laying her head on Sybil's belly and sniffing the babies. I'll definitely need to get pictures of that soon. It's hilarious.

This week the babies have been starting to move around, although their back legs still fail them a little bit. All eyes are open and they're starting to hear. Cutest thing ever when their little ears move around. Ah! Kills me.

We definitely have our favorite picked out (the gray one), in case we do decide to keep one. Evan named her favorite, but that will change if she's ours. Her face is just the cutest little smushed thing I ever did see.

And that's the epitome of my life right now. I just spoke for the first time in 3 days and now I'm light headed. Apparently you're suppose to chew gum to keep your jaw limber and no one told me that. So my jaw opens not at all.

The only real thing I've been doing with my time is reading. I've read 3 books in 7 days so I'll have another book review post coming soonsoonsoon!

9 loves:

  1. So so so sorry you've been in such pain! Oh no!:[
    I've never had my tonsils out, and, since that pain, I think, is more INSIDE your throat, I don't know if this would work or not but, when I had my wisdom teeth out (and I did run out of meds), I would take a damp washcloth, zap it in the microwave, and then lay it across my jaw to get about 2-5 minutes of relief.

    And your kittens. OMG. There are no words. So totally jealous. And I love how both your puppies respond to them! The dog as surrogate father kills me :]

    Feel better soon! And keep taking pics of the kitties for those of us with lack of such adorableness in our lives ;]

  2. so freaking adorable. I can see why she is "favorite" but they are all so cute :)

    Anyway I hope you heal soon. Sounds awfully painful :( Woohoo for free time enough for reading though!

  3. those kitties are making my heart melt!
    I'm so sorry to hear that Larissa! I really hope you feel better soon!

  4. OMG! I hope all that pain goes away soon. And awww about the kitties. Your "favorite" is just soooo cute. I am in love with that first and second photo. I keep staring at their little faces and keep saying AWWWW. =) Those kitties are definitely awwwww worthy. =)

  5. The baby kittens are ridiculously adorable. Ridiculously.

    As for the tonsillectomy, I had one and was in unbelievable pain for the first four days. People act like it's no thang, but, I found out otherwise.

    I have no advice, because there's not much beyond pills that makes it better...but I can say that your life will be super improved once you're healed!

  6. I love that Ginger is the father figure. haha. So cute! =]

    I didn't know that gum business! Why would I want to chew gum? That causes so much more saliva to swallow! But yeah, I remember my jaw hurting like hell too.

    Good work on your bookathon though. That's awesome. It's also awesome that kittens don't potty or something. That's crazy. I wonder what they do! haha

  7. oh my goodness! feel better soon! those baby kittens are ADORABLE! can't wait to hear what books you're reading :)

  8. At least you are sorta talking now! Plus you got super cute kitties to make you feel slightly betta :)
