Goodbye Gallbladder

Today marks the 15th episode of Blue Bloods, 3 movies and 6 naps that I have taken since Friday. I'm honestly not use to laying around this much and it's slightly driving me bonkers. But to finally have the issue of having my gallbladder removed, makes it all worth it. 

The surgery was an easy process, and I was so thankful for the laparasopic procedure. I have a large scar that runs down my abdomen and at first look, it was a big possibility that an open procedure would be the route. 

Once surgery was over, I was in minimal pain but of course very sleepy. When I felt able to sit up, we called for my nurse to come in and help with the process to be safe. We're actually very lucky that we did because upon sitting up I instantly went down. I had no idea that my blood pressure was running low already, and sitting up only made it go even more so. 

Once laying back down, I was perfectly okay and back to sleep. We tried this process a few more times and each time it was the same, along with the dizziness causing nausea. Of course this was only due to the anesthetic that was given to me, and all is well now. Poor Curtis had to wait around all day while I slept off medicine. 

We somehow made it to the car around 4, and came home to bed. 

It really hasn't been too bad, and recovery has been a blessing with the help of my entire family. The kids have been staying with relatives since Thursday night. Last night they came by for a visit for a few minutes, and Charli Beth left this note for me to see as I headed to bed. 

Aren't kids just amazing? I miss them oh so very much but tonight they will be back home. I hope to be back to work tomorrow, but will be taking it slow for just a few more days.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take it easy and don't rush things too much especially when the kids come home. I had a friend who tried to rush after surgery and she ended up with an infection which was worse than the actual surgery.

Story of Mommy

I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
