In case you were wondering what happened to my wife, or why she was being operated on, I thought I would let you know. The first procedure was a septoplasty. If you are wondering what that is exactly, here is the Wikipedia article with a brief explanation of what the procedure entails. Here is another more detailed article from answers.com. The other procedure was a tonsillectomy, its article is here, but I think that most of us are a little more familiar with this one.
I had my tonsils out as a child, but I have learned that as an adult, this is a much more painful and difficult to recover from procedure. The doctor told us that it would be very painful and that it would take quite a while to recover. From first hand experience now, I can attest to that.
There have been many people out there that have told me that they have been praying for her. I want you to know that I really appreciate it, more than you know.
