I am due to have and adenotonsilectomy on 5th Feb, I am a 35yr old sole parent to two boys and have my mother coming to stay with us for a couple of days after my operation. After reading earlier posts, I am a little worried that I won't be able to cope with everyday life after just a couple of days. I have managed to get a couple of weeks off work after my op, but after mum leaves it'll be just me and my boys. I will have to drive my boys to school and do the everyday chores ie. washing, dinners & lunches, helping with homework and all of the other general chores associated with keeping my children happy and healthy.
