Our weekly recap isn't going to have much to it but I still thought I'd document it. Oh and I also plan on doing a separate post on my whole umbilical hernia surgery experience, just in case I can help any other Mama's out there!
Monday we had to do our grocery shopping and on the way back we stopped at the park for a little. Pretty low key day!
Monday night Brayden had a basketball game and I was so proud with his playing! He has improved so much and has gained so much confidence!
While Ella was at school Tuesday me and Miss played a ton of games which included her favorite, Lucky Ducks!
We spent lots of time drawing with our new markers and painting with color (as Avery calls using water colors)
Wednesday I was going to take the girls somewhere fun but then started to worry about germs and since my surgery the next day I thought it would be better to stay away from those germ infested fun places LOL. Instead we did a rainbow craft that the girls loved and Brayden had a half day so he came home and we all had lunch together. After lunch we dropped Brayden off at his friends house and we came home and I spent the next 2 hours straight cleaning the house and doing laundry since I knew I would be out of commission after surgery.
Ella was having her doll sing and it was pretty darn cute :)
Thursday morning was my surgery and as I already shared a little, it was more brutal than I thought it would be. The dr made it seem like it was no big deal but wow was the pain intense. After finally getting my pain under control I was able to go home
Ella was being my nurse while I sat/laid on the couch the rest of the day/night.
Friday my Mom was over bright and early to get Brayden off to school and take care of the girls. At night I finally got the strength to shower and then resumed my spot on the couch and worked on some word searches with my boy
More of my view all weekend. Couch/Ice/TV. Turns out being laid up is bad for your wallet, I did a little too much online shopping this weekend!
Avery eating a Kit Kat at probably 10am on Sunday, and at this point we didn't care - the hubs had been on solo parenting duty + taking care of everything for me so yeah our attitude was pretty much like "whatever"
I got out of the house for a little to go to Target and pick up a site to store pick up then we decided to take the kids to a nearby park. I literally just stood there while they played for a little then it was time to go. I was in a good amount of pain and had to pee so bad!
The rest of the day I spent trying to walk around the house, taking pain meds, and laying around. I won't lie, this recovery has been so much more tough than I expected (or maybe I'm just a huge baby) and I am literally counting the hours until I can take my next pain pill! Here's to hoping I wake up tomorrow ( Monday) and feel much better!
