Many thank yous to all of you who assisted in my post-surgery. I enjoyed happy visits (some I recall and some I do not due to heavy medication), thoughtful calls and offers of help, and many, many frozen dessert treats.
So, there I was, on this 6th day of recovery, sitting in front of the computer and sucking on a fruit bar, and I had a few questions about this whole tonsillectomy miracle. After querying my pal Google I was whisked away to the wonderful world of X-Plain™, the interactive medical teacher with the clever name. A friendly voice and stellar graphics guided me through everything I wanted to know about my tonsils.
There are modules for nearly any disease or medical condition you can imagine. Give it a try! Go learn something about your own body. It's easy and so much fun! And don't fly through the presentation without paying attention. You will be asked True or False questions to make sure you're listening and can't continue until you've answered them correctly.
Here are a few interesting things I learned from my new friend X-Plain™:
1. Playing tug-o-war can lead to scabies.
2. Even gentlemen with exquisite style can get headaches.
3. Bad clip art is a leading cause of erectile dysfunction.
