You know what is wacky? That it is June. We are halfway through the year and I can count on one hand (ok maybe not, I’m not sure) how many times I have blogged. We have had a lot go on in the past few months and I need to catch up on it so I figured why not make it another catchup post with a little bit of wack. Life can get a bit wacky sometimes but whats the fun in life if you don’t have a little bit of wackiness going on. Maybe one day soon I will get back on track but I am not making promises anymore. You know whats even more wacky than anything, I started this post on Tuesday to post on Wednesday. It is not Wednesday, it is Friday, that’s pretty freaking funny. I figured I would leave the title as is because it made me laugh.
Let’s get to it, shall we?
I have had a lot of stomach issues in the past year. All of the meds I take effect my stomach in a bad way. Well, I have had this one very distinct pain for a little over a year now and I didn’t do anything about it because every time I go to the doctor, they tell me it’s noting because the pain was on my left side. It usually goes away after 12 or so hours so I just deal with it now. Well at the beginning of May, I woke up to that certain pain again. I went to work hoping it would go away. Turns out it didn’t go away, in fact it more excruciating as the day went on. Matt fishes on Tuesday nights, it was my luck my pain fell on this day; NOT. I was having a hard enough time as it was to get the kids bathed, fed and to bed. All I wanted to do was go to the hospital, I knew something was different this time. I got my sweet babies to bed and sat down under my heating blanket and ate a small dinner. I started feeling sweaty, cold and hot at the same time, just sick. It was around 8:30 and I decided to go get in bed. Really hoping by the time I woke up it the pain would be gone. I ended up throwing up shortly after and was so exhausted I just tried to sleep and would tell Matt the next morning how bad I was hurting. Thank God he ended up having an off day that next day and took me to the hospital. My pain was so intense the next day I couldn’t handle it anymore. Instead of having to deal with the trouble of emergency rooms my gyno said she would see me. I honestly didn’t know what it was, because the pain was so intense and everywhere. She said she thought it was my appendix so she called her friend who just happens to be a general surgeon and he got my in right away. My sweet gyno’s nurse wheeled me through the hospital to him and Matt walked a long side of me. The general surgeon sent me to CT which showed I did in fact have appendicitis. It hadn’t ruptured yet, thank goodness. I couldn’t imagine the pain people are in when it does rupture because holy shiz that hurt. After a long day of going from doctor to doctor, being in excruciating pain and getting checked into the hospital, I finally got some pain medicine at 8 o’clock. Yup, I am a champion. The kids were with my sister most of the day and she took them to my mom’s house for them to spend the night. JP was in heaven because all he has ever wanted to do is spend the night with his Uncle Matt! The next morning I had my appendix taken out and was on my way home by 11. I got to say, I forgot how bad surgery hurt. Thank goodness for my husband those days, when we got home he put me in bed, shut the door and let me rest. He had to go back to work on Friday and I was by myself with the kids but they were really great at understanding mommy was in pain and needed to rest. They played by themselves most of the day, I was so impressed. My aunt Jane did stop by and brought us food and even washed my dishes! I could have cried it’s not often something like that happens. I am feeling so much better now and my stomach has rarely hurt! Its been so nice not to feel that pain anymore!
I hadn’t barely eaten in 2 days, so after they got antibiotics and pain meds in me, I was starving. Matt went to longhorns and got all the fixins!!
This post is way out-of-order but oh well. I am just trying to remember everything that has happened. My baby girl turned THREE on April 8th! We had her party that next weekend at Let’s Play in Birmingham. She had the best time ever. The party was so easy, all we brought were cupcakes and the birthday girl. They made the party very easy and organized with lots of pressure off of us. I’ll do an entire blog post on it soon but I wanted to share this picture when Elsa arrived at her party! She was in heaven!
We got my mom out on the pontoon a few weeks ago! My dad came too and the kids were so excited to have their moomoo there to ride and enjoy a wonderful day on the lake.
I recently cut all of my kid’s hair very short. JP got his annual buzz cut and asked me to do it even shorter when I was done with it. I know its got to feel good to him when it is so hot outside. Maddie’s hair is so fine and straight and falls right in her eyes. I even tried training her bangs a while back for days in a row, using every product I own with lots of bobby pins and still just fell flat in her face! So instead of it looking like a mullet I figured I would chop it off and cut it into a bob. It looks so freaking cute!! Jocelynn wanted hers short after that so I chopped hers off too! Jocelynn’s hair was beautiful long but I didn’t want to look back and ask myself “why didn’t I explore with their hair?” Guess what? She loves her hair!! I am so glad I have babies that are willing to have a little change in their life. After all, it is just hair and will grow back.
Have I mentioned before how much my children LOVE their uncle matt?!? Like, completely obsessed, crazy in love with him. It makes me so happy they love him so much. Uncle Matt and JP have a special bond. They are actually a lot alike too. They throw the baseball together, play games together, and play hide and seek. They are freaking adorable. One of their favorite things to do is lay in bed with him and watch movies!!
Speaking of special relationships, Matt took JP to a Thursday night tournament! JP, his daddy and pawpaw fished together and JP was in complete heaven. They came in 2nd but it’s as good as 1st place to JP.
My mother’s day was terrific. Besides not being able to see my own mom it was pretty perfect. I wasn’t able to see my mom because she was having a horrible day and didn’t want anyone to see her. When she says that I know she doesn’t feel good so I respected her and decided not to annoy her. We went out the pontoon with friends! We got lots of sun, fished and rode! It was perfect, everyday is perfect as long as I get to spend it with the ones I love.
I have a few more things to catch up on and I’ll let that be the end because this is taking longer than I thought.
- We sold Marsha, our dalmatian. It was a hard decision but we had to because she was a little rough with the kids. A little more rough than we wanted her to be and she kept running away even after we got ash invisible fence. We are going to go back to the breed we know and love and thats a labrodor retriever. It might be because we all miss Roxanne so much but I think we made the right decision. And the family that bought Marsha from us is wonderful. They have a male and will mate them in the future! They loved one another at first sight, it was pretty cute.
- Our home is FOR SALE!! Yup, we recently put a bid in on a home we fell madly in love with and now have a contract on it! We have until August to sell our house but we are so excited!! Cant wait to make all of our dreams come true and make some amazing memories!
- My mom has taken a turn for the worse. She is not doing good. AT ALL. We all know it. It is just different lately. Her stomach is hurting her more and she says she is a different type of tired. We are hoping to get a CT scheduled very ,very soon to see if this chemo is working at all. If not, we will go from there and decided what to do next but I’m scared. I haven’t been scared up until now. Like the actual scared feeling of really losing her. I cant tell you how much I love my mom, its impossible. No I will not be ok, but who would be? I am so scared, and nervous and have a lot of anxiety going on for her. I cant even imagine how she feels though. She has got to be terrified. She tries to be brave in front of us all we do the same but its clear on how scared everyone is. Please say a prayer for her if you pray, my family and I would appreciate it so much.
