Prob NL recovery: This is prob normal. Your scabs on your tonsils are drying up & sloughing at about this time into your recovery. So minor bleeding is OK. Watch for sig bleeding though. Any sig bright red bleeding or pumping blood is an emergency. Get to the ER ASAP if you see that kind of sig bleeding. Eat a soft diet - nothing that could scratch your scabs. And you could gently swish & swallow ice water.
