Anyone had their tonsils removed? UPDATED: Surgery is scheduled

Has anyone had their tonsils removed as an adult? Was the recovery as horrible as they make it sound?

UPDATE 12/19: I saw a new ENT today and he said mine need to come out - he said the size difference is "concerning" and wants them biopsied (one is 3x larger than the other). So, looks like I will be getting the surgery Jan 14th after all. Based on the horrific accounts here, it sounds like a wonderful way to start out 2013...

So, if my husband takes the first two days off of work, is it reasonable to expect that I can care for my kids (3 and almost 5) by myself after that? What foods should I keep on hand? Any other recovery suggestions for me?
