Tomboy Blues + Update

Hi there everyone!

So, as some of you may or may not have noticed, I promised this post for my #OOTD to go up yesterday. Obviously, this was not the case.

First off, let me apologize for the delay in getting this up. I was unfortunately unable to access my laptop yesterday, as I spent all day, and all night at the hospital. I had a tonsillectomy procedure done about 9 days ago, and have been slowly recovering since. Yesterday morning, we noticed a blood clot on the left side of my mouth, and I was taken to the ER at my local hospital. I am okay, but I am in the low percentage that experience after procedure bleeding, and had to be observed overnight, in case bleeding re-occurred. Fortunately, I didn’t bleed again, and I was released this morning to go home without needing to go through surgery again.

I was avoiding mentioning that I had this procedure, simply because I didn’t feel it was relevant to my blog. But, because it has affected my upload schedule, and been such an unexpected journey, I thought I would explain what was going on with me, and share my experience with this surgery and recovery process.

If you are in need of a tonsillectomy, or if your child is, I cannot stress to you enough to get it done as soon as possible. As an adult getting your tonsils removed is much, much, much more difficult of a recovery, and a lot more painful. The older you are when you get this procedure done, the worse your recovery experience will be. Children are lucky, and recover much easier and faster than adults do.

I won’t sugarcoat my experience, and pretend it’s been a breeze. It hasn’t. I’ve experienced horrible nausea from the amount of heavy painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication mixed with not a whole lot in my stomach. Not to mention, you’re experiencing a lot of pain. The idea of this, and the risk of bleeding as I unfortunately experienced, tends to scare people off from getting it done when their doctor recommends it. They end up suffering with their tonsils even longer, and delay a surgery that would have been so much easier on them, if they had gotten it done as soon as their doctor advised them to. I cannot stress enough to you this advice.

I am 22-years-old, and this has been a tough run. Fortunately, I am healing well according to the doctors who observed me overnight, and my pain levels have decreased to a much more manageable level. I’m hoping to be on my feet again a bit more by next Tuesday!

Because of this delay, I wanted to let you know that Friday’s post will also be posted a day later than usual. So Friday’s #OOTD will be up for Saturday. Just to get things back on track right for Monday 🙂

Now that my story’s out of the way, let’s get right into what was promised to you!

Warm weather is a great time to pull out a lightweight button up and some comfy boy shirts for cute, tomboy chic look. I added some girly elements to my outfit by pairing my outfit with some glittery sandals, and a cute little bag.

I personally like to imagine myself wearing an outfit like this out to a summer brunch, sitting out on a patio and enjoying the warm breeze, sipping on mimosas and enjoying some delicious blueberry pancakes.

Mmmmm. Got a little carried away with that mental picture 😛
