Max takes on Ochocinco

Made you look didn't I! Max has finally requested to pay a sport! After watching Maddie play last year he requested to play!  Last week was his first practice and believe it or not Mommy forgot to even take her camera.... Oops! I made up for it this week, they have their first game on Saturday and the weather has been so inconsistent that bless their hearts they have only had 2 practices.  So, ladies and gents, grandma's, papa's and Eddie Powells.... Meet the KC Fireballs!
I think I'm supposed to kick this ball here!
His 'Fro is coming back in nicely!
See that form! He's a rockstar!
Are you talking to me?
Pep talk #1 (I have a feeling through this summers sporting events there will be a LOT of this)
Hussle Up!
I'll try harder to listen Coach Chip - Pep Talk #2!
hmmm... Maybe you should listen more! You have the ball now!
Great Practice Max! No matter what we are proud of you because you are out there doing your best!
Love  you Big Boy! I can't wait to watch you play your game on Saturday!

Oh how I've missed you! Your crazy wind, silly weather changes, sunshine, thunder, lightning Spring.
I've missed the joy of our neighbors, the community that comes from living in a small town. The reason we live here and not in the city. I don't even mind the dirt being tracking in and out of the house. I love the shrill of laughter you have provided my family with already on your third day! Thank you Mother nature, thank you God for giving us our reason to smile and joy!
I look forward to spending much more time enjoying you!

Post Op Day 4

Ok, so I've taken it easy for 4 days. I'm done. I can't really continue like this. I honestly feel like a worthless piece of poo. I feel like less of a person, not just because I've evicted Marie Barone either. I feel like I can't do anything. And, I'm not really having that much pain unless I walk a long period of time. So, I get up and watch the kids do things for a little bit then I all of a sudden feel like my insides are falling out. I am very happy to be a part of the hyster-sister club but I am not enjoying the do nothing part! So far, I've watched Sweet Home Alabama, The NCAA tournament, Hell Boy, The fighter, The Karate Kid and now I'm watching Sex in the City! I have seen Sweet Home Alabama more than 1,000 times and Sex in the City I've Poughkeepsie'd myself enough to quote it! (Those of you haven't seen the movie sham on you!)

So, I'm starting the first Beautiful day wishing it away and anxiously awaiting Friday when I'll break more rules by lifting my over 10 pound camera and shooting! And, no matter what you people say I'll do it anyway.

Happy St. Pat's day

Greetings from my post op hospital stay. It's been a long night here. My room mate was up every 2 hours requesting her pain meds that she knows (because she' a frequent flyer here) she can't have but every 4 hours. At one point I was awakened by her standing up next to her bed yelling for someone named Jacob. The nurses came as quick as they could and apologized immediately to me~ I'm sure by now most of you are wondering why wouldn't you just pay the money for the private room. Well, honestly I pay enough for 2 insurance plans and $159 upfront per night isn't exactly appealing. If I'm paying that much I'd like to also have room service with awesome food! And I'm hoping to go home tonight. My pain is averaging out to about a 6 most of the time and of course I'm refusing to take any pain medicine after my blood pressure was running 88/60 last night. I can tolerate the pain but I'm not interested in being so weak I have to stay longer.  I have been taking Toradol which is a mild muscle relaxer and Ibuprofen. I'll keep you updated today as it time goes on. They've drawn my labs already this morning and they'll be reviewing my heart monitor closely. I'm hoping Dr. Johnson(ob) comes in at a fairly decent time which should be around noon and says all is well! And because it's a holiday here's my favorite Irish Blessing:

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers!

Surgery update

Well, i am post op now! I feel an explanation is necessary since my love bug hijakedmy facebook page during surg!
I had a total hysterectomy this morning. After having terrible cycles that have lasted over 12 days a month for 7-8 months I decided to find a new GYN. She agreed immediately after reviewing my extensive records that consisted of 2 laparoscpies, 2 endometrial ablations, and having my tubes tied it was time to take the next step.

During surgery I had an episone of btadycardia. What is that? It's wete your  rate slows way down. Per anesthesiology it looked like on the monitor that I had an 2nd degree AV block! They used epinephrine to put my heart back in normal rythym. It from that point was Tachycadic. So I am now wearing a monitor and they will be consulting cardiologist!
Thank u for your continued support and prayers!
