We drove around in a jeep, windows rolled down, feeling the cool breeze, music on blast, and we all sang along…♡
Baby boy has brought so much happiness to the family! My first newborn photo session. This post is a little late but I wanted to give thanks to everyone who believes in me & encourages me to continue photography. I’m always learning something new! Hope everyone’s had happy holidays and a happy new year!
My younger sister is four months pregnant now! These are her first pregnancy photographs. Even though they were taken in our front porch, I still think they came out really nice. The gender reveal planning is coming soon so I have been coming up with a couple ideas and I’m just so excited to be auntie once more. 🙂 At this point her baby is about the size of a pear or an avocado. We’re thinking it might be a boy but another girl would also be nice. I will be posting more photos as the months go by!
This past December I had my tonsils and adenoids surgically removed and honestly it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I want to write about this topic because I was researching like crazy about getting my tonsils removed, the pros and the cons, and others’ experiences about it. Some said it was the worst decision they’ve ever made and there were a whole lot of negative comments about getting your tonsils removed, it got to the point where I was doubting what my Dr recommended and I was just super nervous and stressed out about it. I had a bunch of “what ifs” and didn’t know what to do..
So I’m going to talk about my experience from the beginning. For the past 4 years, I’d get horrible strep throats at least twice every winter time. It was painful swallowing but I feel like I have always been the kind of girl that toughens things out, especially when it comes to colds or the flu so I wouldn’t worry about it. I would literally go to work running a fever for two days hoping it would go away with Tylenol or Advil and I would take tea to help my throat and aching body feel better. Now, getting strep throat twice every winter time wasn’t enough to have to get them removed so that hadn’t even crossed my mind until September of 2016. That’s when I started getting sick ALL the time.
From September to November, I had recurring strep throat and I was constantly sick. I was given an antibiotic and it seemed to be working but as soon as I finished the last pill, my strep throat came back. I was prescribed a different antibiotic and again, it did not work. I was sent to a throat specialist and as soon as I opened my mouth and went “aah” he immediately said my tonsils had to go. They were huge and infected. My tonsils were so swollen that I had visible lumps on my neck. They were causing me problems in my sleep and I had difficulty breathing which caused me to snore louder than my dad. I did not feel like myself at all, my body just felt tired all the time no matter how much rest or sleep I was getting. Thankfully, my boyfriend convinced me and calmed my worries about getting my tonsils removed. He made me realize I had to stop thinking about what other people thought or said and do what was best for me and my body.
Now that I have experienced it, let me confirm the truths about all I’ve read on the internet about adult tonsillectomies:
