My Post Op Appt

I am so not looking forward to today, well maybe a little!  I have my post op appt and will discuss my next surgery, taking out my gallbladder.  I did figure out that taking heartburn meds does help my gallbladder pain, thank goodness!  I was dying yesterday!  I am hoping he will let me start exercising so I can lose some of this chub!  My next appt is with my ob/gyn to check out the cysts the surgon said he saw on my ovaries....I see yet another surgery in my future!  I hit 40 and fell apart!   I will post all about my appt when I get back.

I also have to pick up Madison and Emily's meds from the store.  Madison has terrible allergies that are just wreaking havoc on her eyes....they're bright red and hurt.  Zachary is starting to get it as well.  He did sleep all night but I think it was the benadryl that helped with that.  His nose is just running all the time and making him miserable.  I love New Mexico but it is terrible for those who have allergies. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and will check in later.....

Yes I am enjoying Monday! back to normal!  Madison off to KidsZone, Emily to school and Zach and I running errands all morning.  It is nice to just have the kids to deal with all extra person just throws your schedule off! 

I love my husband and appreciate everything he did while off taking care of me and the kids but boy it was time for him to go back to work!  He starts his new job today (he was moved to a different job while on leave with me) and I know he was a bit nervous.  He is also back in school with University of Pheonix and has lots of papers to write which takes quite a bit of work and time.  My classes start next month and I will be taking 3, one online and the others on the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho campuses.  I need to bust through them and get this degree done...I am not getting any younger!  I have decide to not pursue my nursing degree and just focus on medical assisting for now and see how that goes. 

Zach is back to not sleeping through the night.  I have about given up.  He gets 8 oz of the enfamil nighttime formula and a bowl of cereal and still wakes up 2 - 3 hours later wanting another 6 oz of formula.  Emily and Maddie were easy compared to Zach!  If I let him cry, he bawls for at least an hour and by then I am fully awake.  This 4 hours of sleep a night is kicking my butt and I know isn't helping with my healing either.  The only times I slept throug the night was when I ws in the hospital....if only I could go back to get sleep! 

Today Zach and I went to Target to just walk around and I found my face scrub and body wash on sale so was a productive trip.  After that we went to my fave thrift store and found lots of clothes for Zach and Maddie for next winter and a couple things for now since we still are pretty cold here.  WalMart also was on my to do list and found PJ's for Emily, tops for $2 and bottoms for $2.50 so have gifts for her for Easter since she always need PJ's!  Also got myself a new pair of PJ's since they were $3.  After that I got Chick-fil-a for lunch, picked up Maddie and went home.  Dinner will be roasted chicken, asparagus and stuffing...yummo! 

I will be posting pics of my hubby's handiwork:  he laid new flooring in my living room and painted, put up new lights in both bathrooms and new mirrors.  There is still lots of painting to do but in no big hurry.  My house is feeling more like a home since making these improvements and getting rid of furniture that we just don't need. 

Happy Monday!

I'm back!

Well I will be on Monday!  I will start blogging again since I am feeling so much better and Larry will be back to work.  Larry has been busy painting and putting down new floors in the living room.  We still have lots of painting to do but slowly the house is looking like our home, not just a blank slate!  I will post pics as soon as I get everything unpacked and back where it belongs. 

Let me tell ya, hernia surgery is no fun and I get to go through another surgery in about 8 weeks!  I have gallstones and boy do they hurt.  I guess my hernia had been masking the pain for months but now it is up and full center!  I swear I hit 40 and fell apart!  I sure hope this is just my year to improve myself and it doesn't get worse!  Can the aging process go backwards please? 

Looking forward to chatting about our lives again and posting my reviews on some great products!  I sure have missed blogging but needed the time to heal and spend with the family.

Am I feeling human....maybe!

Ahhh a week later and I am feeling so much better, may not look a whole lot better but feeling better!  I can now get up without scaring everyone with my groans and may even be able to sleep in my own bed soon!  LOL!!  I am sure Maddie will have saomething to say about that since she has been enjoying snuggling with Daddy.  Larry has been really great and is getting the hang of the kids and their schedule.  He knows to just leave me alone and check on me occasionally since when I am not feeling well, I am not fun to be around! 

I have exciting news....Emily made honor roll!!!  I am still in shock but am so very proud!  I am sticking as many bumper stickers on my van as possible!  She is still struggling with math but is plugging along and slowly getting it. 

Zach has also started to crawl and is quite fast already!  He is not liking that I don't pick him up or hold him much but surely I do not want to go through this surgery again! 

Maddie is happy I am home and got rid of my big belly...gotta love what comes out of the mouthes of babes!  She asked me why they didn't take my big booty too...I wonder why also sweetie! 

Larry has been doing work around the house.  He has changed out the bathroom mirror in the kid's bathroom and the light fixture.  It is amazing how things look so different even with  few changes.  He will be painting the living room and laying wood floors this week...God help us!  I will just have to lay in bed and drug myself if he gets too crabby! 

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and has a safe one as well! 

Woo Hoo!

So happy and proud...

Maddie with her little tude!

Zach movin' and groovin'!

Recovery is very slow...

Just wanted to pop in and say hello.  I am doing a little better but still hurting quite a bit.  I didn't realize laproscopic surgery was so hard! The hernia was so large it took 14 incisions to get it all fixed.  I am still friends with my pain pills just have me taking 1 every 4 hours instead.  Thank you all for the well wishes.  I hope to be up and at 'em next week.  Have a great weekend!
