So the last two weeks have been such a roller coaster literally. Hold onto your seat and do not let go… lets go through the journey of life to get caught up.
As you know last week I had my gallbladder surgery. That Monday I would say was the worst. When I came out of surgery, I couldn’t catch a breath for anything so they put me on oxygen and I kept vomiting up this yellow stuff they said was bile. It just kept coming up and I was like geeeez…. dr said well hope you know you can’t go home you will have to stay in the hospital. I so did not want that because of the girls. Madisyn walked in from school right when all this was going on and she just hit to her knees and started crying so hard and saying mommy mommy mommy. I felt so bad for her :(. I hated she had to see all of that.
I was pretty much out of it the rest of the evening and night with all the medicine they gave me. By Tuesday, I was feeling pretty good and ready to get out of there. The gas was what was the worst. You know the gas they blow your belly up with to do the surgery. So as soon as I got home I was up walking everywhere and up and down the road trying to get all that gas out of my shoulder. Hubbs did so good with the girls all by himself. I was super proud of him.
I made mistake and ate a piece of pizza last Friday… yea that wasn’t good HA. Dr said it will take time to get the body adjusted… so just laying light on all foods right now.
I went back for my check-up today and one of my incisions was infected and we talked about this heartburn/reflux I was having. Also a pain that I was having in my tummy. Come to find out, I have gastritis. Dr said sometimes after a gallbladder surgery, the patient can develop this. :(. I was so hoping to just glide through this. He has put me on a 8 week treatment plan that he thinks will take care of it and heal me. If it does not, then they will do another surgery and go down with a light. I know without a doubt God, will let the 8 week plan to heal me for good!!
Through all of this, we have moved as well :(. Since hubbs was put out on medical leave for his job due to complications from his accident in August, we realized we better move back in with my parents to get a savings built back up. It was so hard doing this, but I know we will better off and I’m thankful my parents opened up their full basement for us.
Sooooo the last few days, have been moving, cleaning, moving, cleaning and did I mention moving? Also we can’t forget to throw in Madisyn’s soccer games, soccer practices and clogging lessons – Lyndsee’s dr appointments. This fall weather is kicking her butt with her asthma. Say a prayer she can get back on the mend.
Sometimes I feel really high and waving my arms with YIPPPEEEE on that roller coaster and then I can feel myself really low and folding my arms in pity. It’s ok though… I know God is guiding me through every step and he is with me all the way. He has a plan for us and we are just following his will :).
