On my DEATH bed!

Ok here goes a dreary post but it is 3:45 in the morning and I need to get this out! Plus I am feeling sorry for myself. I got my tonsils out yesterday and can I say ouch! I know everyone is different but OH my goodness this is way more pain then expected. It is such a constant agonizing pain that I cant explain other then fire and pure H- E -DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS! The pain killers dont seem to touch the pain except for the 1st half hour or so, so by two hours I want another one but cant have it until at least every 3 and a half or 4 which is still more often then the bottle says I can but I dont give a crap! My nerves are shot because I am starving, and the same nerves that are in your throat go to your ears so I have a dual ear ache.....yes I am in tears as I type and drugged up so if this makes no sense dont blame me. I have to say this is more intense pain then the after math of a C-section. At least with that I could swallow the pills and not move around much to control the pain. With this nightmare I cant swallow, I would rather spit my spit out then have to swallow. Plus to top it all off the pills they gave me are the size of a dang watermelon! I mean seriously who are they kidding. At least Jamie got liquid and said she would share. Im sorry Jamie for not understanding the pain that you were going through a few weeks ago. I would definitely not recommend it. All I have to say is if I dont lose ten pounds through this misery I will be ticked! :) Thank you mom for staying with me this week, you are always my life saver! You do so much for me. Anyway on a happier note and to take my mind off this Im gonna post a few happy pics of life at the Shupes the last month or so. Christmas was fun, my parents came here this year and Ty seemed to love all his presents no matter how few there were. Ty turned ONE on the 10th! I cant believe it. He is now off the bottle and is on an all food diet. I cant believe that the doctors say to only give them 2 cups of milk a day and no more bottles at all. He's seeming to do fine so far, I was just amazed at how little milk and juice they are supposed to have. Here a a few cute things he is doing these days that I love to watch. He points at everything, loves to hide and you find him, takes all pots and pans out and makes noise that im sure my neighbors can hear, dances to any music that is on, runs to daddy when he gets home and shouts for glee (dustin's personal favorite) and he loves hugs and kisses right now so I'll take what I can get because he was not a very cuddly baby. Anyway Dustin got a new calling in church, he is now 2nd councilor in the elders quarm. He starts school next week and is anxious to get it over with. He got a raise at work so that is a blessing. My calling is going great, I have so much help from my councilors and Secretary that I know I couldnt have picked better women to serve with! They are such neat women with great ideas, that sometimes I wonder why I am the president. By the way they brought 3 casseroles, cookies, soups, and a lot of capri suns by last night, how sweet! Dustin is grateful for the food and Im grateful for the liquid. My girls wrote the sweetest notes that made me cry. Thank you guys! I died my hair dark brown and cut it all off again. Im tired of trying to keep up with the blond so it will be a good change for awhile. Hope everyone is doing well and Im sorry you had to read my pity party that I had to get off my chest. Now for the picture overload.....
Loving the new Rocking horse Grandma and Grandpa got him Opening presents with daddy Wants to be just like daddy with his hat on Thanks Grandma Deann for the piano, Ty loves it! All Ty's loot Birthday boy, he loved the hat...really he did
Not sure about the candle. he was a chicken with the flame Opening Birthday gifts with Grandpa Yum

You poor thing. I have never had my tonsils out, but I have had a c-section, and if its worse...then I cant even imagine! Just rest rest rest (as much as possible with a 1 year old). And Ty is so stinkin cute. I cant believe how big he is getting. We need to get together again sometime soon. Love ya and feel better.

My first was a C and I'd take that any day over a tonsillectomy! Sorry you feel so crummy... if I lived closer I'd make you some food! And I love the brown hair!! I wish I looked that good at 5 a.m.!

Fox Family said...

Emily! I had no idea you were not feeling good! Seriously if you need some one to take ty for a while CALL ME! 0296 I would love to have him and get to know him! Your hair is cute...it's tempting to cut mine but it grows too slow! Anyway, call if you need ANYTHING!

Nelson Family said...

You sound exactly like Jamie, it is so bad, huh?! I had mine tonsils out when I was 21 & I remember it as being so horrible, that's why I was so worried for Jamie. And you. I had three of my kids without an epidural (not my choice) and I think the pain of those labors is pretty comparable!! But I at least got something beautiful from the labor & delivery.:) Not to say you will never get a sore throat again...but you are now experiencing the worst sore throat you will ever have!! Ty is such a doll and your hair is always so dang cute no matter what color you have it. Take it easy and get some rest. Happy Healing!!!

Hope you are filling better and I like the brown hair!!!!

Wahls said...

so sorry that you had to get your tonsils out. i am definitely feeling your pain. i had mine out my 3rd year of college and i seriously wanted to DIE! so many sleepless nights and all i did was cry! so frustrating... but on the upside i did end up losing 20 pounds! but i had it to lose from the freshman 50!! i don't think you can afford to lose that much but it was worth it for me in the end! hope you get feeling better. I turned our blog to private when we moved. send me an e-mail and i'll add you to our list.

No I love it actually ( and you know I am a fan of blonde on you). Miss you! We need to see each other. YOu are one of those that I have loved instantly!

The Coover Family said...

Suck it up you big wimp!

Just kidding. I took Kennadie to the dr. the other day and there were women talking about how painful c-sections were and that they'd never do it again.

If your pain was that bad then yikes. Are you sure they didn't remove something else by mistake?

Ty is a stud. He's growing very fast. Time flys by doesnt it...

LaDue & Crew said...

Hey girl! Thanks for all the compliments! Wow, I feel kinda special right now after all that! Nope, haven't worked for Dr Harris since before Tayler was born. I haven't worked at all since May of '06... that's why my butt is so huge ;o)I've got to call Brian for an appt though, I'm way overdue! What are you doing these days??
