Swollen Tonsils

Update! Maybelline simply has a sinus infection. She was disappointed that she had to head to school to finish her day. Heh. But she refused to let Dr. Monkeysuit look in her mouth. Hmph. Pictures tomorrow!

TGIF!

Today is one of those days. One of those days that I need to be reminded that it's Friday. Yes?

For me? Friday is the day before I go back to work. Not looking forward to that so much this week. Don't know why. Maybe it's all the travel and freedom of the last couple of weeks.

Today is also the day Maybelline heads to the doc (I hope - I'll be calling when their office is open). Her throat has been sore for a couple of days, but when I looked in her mouth last night, one of her tonsils was touching her uvula. Yeah. And after the mono this winter and Red Rocks' strep, I'm not taking any chances.

Mr. Monkeysuit will be with us. He can't help it. He lives on my purse. And because they'll have to fit us in, I'm sure there will be a wait. Mr. Monkeysuit will certainly be bored. I'll definitely take pictures. *sigh* Maybelline will be mortified. The things that poor child has to endure ...

For you, my bloggy friends. All for you. Oh alright - and because I'm just bizarre.

Until I write again ...

Umm, I so didn't read that as "uvula" the first time, and I was thinking dang, those are some massively big tonils...

Hope she's feeling better soon and survives her afternoon mortification ;-).

Oh Robin totally cracked me up... see my reaction was 'wow Flea has some major good eyes'

Poor Maybelline, she cant win

Ironically, we're still paying off K2's trip to emergency when her tonsil abscessed. It was a lot less expensive to have them removed. So yeah, don't let Maybeline get abscessed!

And you know I want pictures!

Yikes! This sounds ghastly. Hope your daughter is feeling better soon.

Poor Maybelline. I hope she gets some magic pills. And that Monkeysuit behaves himself.

Embarrassing your children is your job. Mr. Monkeysuit just helps. Here's hoping Maybelline feels better, and soon. La Petite had mono recently, too; she's recovering fairly well, thank goodness.

Flea, hope she feels better soon and it doesn't cost you and arm and a leg. Keep us posted.

Happy for Maybelline it wasn't her tonsils, I had mine removed and it's no fun.

Poor M. Hope she feels better soon. When she grows up she will laugh at all the stories. For now, she will cry.
