Tonsillectomy night 4: downturn

It looks like my fears were off by 12 hours.  Last night was the worst by far – even after kicking her pain meds back up to the full dose, Karen was in some mega pain for her 4am round.  It’s tough watching her try to swallow.  She’s been doing these little leg twitches, but now it’s turned into a full-body tense and cringe.  It looks terrible.

So…  I’m hoping the two full doses she has in her now plus the light of day might make things a little easier, but I suspect we’re in for a rough one.  Shoot.

    I wonder if the bacon had anything to do with it—I’m sure it tasted great, but wonder if it really irritated things. I have a feeling a lot of popsicles and jello are in order for the day–especially the popsicles. Does she still have the ice pack from the hospital? Would that help maybe?
