See ya later tonsils!

So I’ve decided: after fighting with infection all season, I’m getting my tonsils removed. Luck was on my side and I got an operation date straight away on Thursday 24/02. Since I can’t ski and train normally right now I want to operate ASAP. Removing my tonsils will unburden my immune system resulting in less illness and more energy. Since I have chronic tonsil infections, there’s also a risk of the bacteria spreading to other organs such as kidneys and heart, especially as an athlete. I can’t train or do any sport 3 to 4 weeks after the operation, otherwise I could have problems with bleeding. All going well though I’ll be able to enjoy the end of the season on skis.

I’m not even thinking about the Freeride World Tour anymore and the fact that I missed out this year. All that matters to me now is getting my health back. Once I have that I can start skiing, training and competing again – and you can be sure that I’ll be more motivated than ever before. So watch out for me next season!
