Tonsilitis: Third Grade 1965


I was in my underwear for more than a week
My only surgery in my life was when my tonsils were removed after third grade, 1965.  I had surgery a few days after Chritmas.  I remember getting a shot, and being told to count backwards.  The next thing I remember was waking in the car as my parents loaded me in.  It must have been same day surgery.  This was at Logan Hospital. I was pretty sick for a few days. 
When school started, I had a sore throat every morning and stayed home a week.  The wore throat would go away by noon, and I was mostly OK the rest of the day.  This was great, because I received a Civil War set for Christmas, and entertained myself just fine.
