Tonsillectomy Post-Op day 6

Not much new here to report: still hurts like crazy.
The more talking I try to do, the worse off I am, so I need to force myself to not talk for awhile, but it is really so hard with the kids!

Eating is not going any better at all. I tried some tiny pieces of toast soaked in my soup tonight, and a few small bites was all i could do before I felt like my throat was going to explode.

I am thrilled to be losing weight, but it's getting a bit ridiculous at this point.

I am starting to feel a teeny bit of pain in my ears. Not much at all, but I can feel it. Hopefully that will just stay like that for now.

I started to go 5 hours between doses of the tylenol w/codeine today, instead of 4. I suppose I gotta wean myself at some point.
I feel like such a junkie...after about 2.5 hours, I start jonesing for a dose really bad! I am no longer setting my alarm in the night, though. I just gotta sleep.
