My baby, of twenty, is going in to hospital for her first general anaesthetic tomorrow morning to get her tonsils removed. Since she got glandular fever a few years ago she has been suffering from really sore throats in increasing frequency. She’s had 7 since September last year and an operation seems the only way forward. I’m a little perturbed to be honest. Worried that something will go wrong but trying not to look on the dark side. Will update tomorrow.
