More than a month ago I started feeling a little under the weather. I had a sore throat, but I figured, meh, it’s just allergies. No big deal. It’s just a sore throat. It’ll go away. Right? Wrong. It kept getting worse, and I got so sick, I had to cope through fantasies it was all part of some genetic superpower that was kicking in and any day now I would wake up with perfect vision and super strength or, worse case scenario, as a werewolf or something. Hey, you never know. I should note I saw two doctors on separate occasions during this time, tested negative for strep and mono, and was referred to an ENT because of an abscess on one of my tonsils.
Flash forward to now, and I am getting prepared for the first real surgery of my life (wisdom teeth, excluded). My left tonsil is so infected both of those suckers have to come out. My doctor was honest and warned me the recovery is going to be…tough.. At least two weeks of misery and bed rest, maybe more. Everyone is different. Who knows? I could be fine after a week.
I am a total wimp, so I fully expect to be laid up for at least two months. Maybe six. You may never hear from me again. I don’t know. It could happen. I am that wimpy.
Either way, I am preparing for at least two weeks of bedrest and assuming I will be able to read and watch Netflix to my heart’s content. Lord knows my Kindle has enough books on it to get me through at least six months, and I’m already eyeing a few at the top — “A Hunt by Moonlight” by Shawna Reppert, “Hollywood Demon” by Jenny Schwartz, “Disruptor” by Sonya Clark, and pretty much at least one book by everyone here in the Here Be Magic group. Still, I’m open to suggestions and recommendations. Send them my way in the comments below. I like stories with vampires, werewolves, shifters, psychics, medieval characters, aliens, cats, dogs, rabbits, men, women, Elvis, zombies, superheroes, steampunk, witches, firefighters, thrillers, scary stuff, not-so-scary stuff….basically, I like everything, OK? I’m also indecisive, so tell me what to read, people.
Netflix suggestions? Send those babies my way in the comments. I also have Amazon Prime, so there’s that, too. What shows should I binge watch? I’m partial to fantasy-paranormal-supernatural shows, but again, I’ll watch anything. Last week when I was laid up at home because I felt bad I watched some show called “Amish Hauntings” that was beyond cray cray. There was this goat baby terrorizing an Amish community. I mean…what? But see? Proof I will indeed watch anything. Save me from myself. Send me GOOD suggestions.
Hopefully I will see you all on the other side…of this surgery. Not “the other side.” I mean, not yet. Not for a while. A long while. Geesh. *laughs nervously*
