Well, this is not the time that I wanted downtime, but this is the time I got it.
I'd been having troubles with coughing, constant nasal drip and some large growths sticking out of my tonsils into my airway/throat. Not a lot of fun. The doctor said the tonsils had to come out.
I'd heard all the stories about how this was 'much worse for adults' and how much longer it would take me to heal.
Everything I heard so far has been true and then some.
I've now depleted the vanilla ice cream population in my town, and unfortunately, I've not been on a bike in a couple weeks.
The good news is that I'm now 191 lbs. Lighter than I've been in a very long time! Now if I can keep the weight off and keep my strength up, I'll be OK. Unfortunately, I cannot manage to do anything at all stressful. You'd never believe how much strain it puts on your throat to do stressful things!
