Woooooo!!! SHIVER ME TIMBERS! I can laugh and yell and play again! It’s been one month since Dr. Patches helped me with my sore throat and I feel so much better! I did exactly what they told me to do, I drank lots of water, and ate mashed potatoes and chocolate fudge brownie ice cream! My throat was still sore for a couple of days, but every day it felt better and better. When I went to the Tiny Docs hospital and Dr. Patches said I needed a tonsillectomy, I was pretty scared. I didn’t even know what that was and I thought I might lose my throat forever. But, Dr. Patches and Nurse Scrubs explained everything to my mom and me, and she let me ask any questions I wanted. I was still a little nervous before the surgery, but when Dr. Patches asked me if I was ready to be brave, I knew I could trust her and be as brave as I needed to be. I can’t wait to go back and see everyone and show them how well I’m doing!
