Email Blogging



Just trying out this new feature, emailing my blog posts. Very Cool!







Spring is here!

and with it comes this disgusting yellow pollen. :sneeze: It's awful. It gets on EVERYTHING and stays there.

It's been an eventful week in our household. Derrick is feeling 300 percent better. Thank the lord! but Gary caught a really bad flu! We think it might be this swine flu, I mean it really knocked him on his ass. But he is finally getting better. I have never seen him soo sick.

Derrick went back to school yesterday, and is doing great. I am soo happy, I hated seeing him in soo much pain. The meds were giving him stomach cramps! He will be 2 weeks post-op tomorrow. His follow-up appt. with Dr. Gupta is next week, and I am sure it will go fine.

We are camping this weekend with the TIF group,at Jordan lake. I am excited, we have sooo much fun camping.

My knee is still wonky. It hurts some days and is fine others. Blah, I just wish it would heal already. For the 100th time, I am back on WW, and it's going o.k. I can't let my MIL beat me at losing weight. HAHAHAHA.

Surgery aftermath

Surgery went well, better than I expected. Recovery has been good, rough at times, but good. We had him doped up for the last 3 days, and we have cut his meds back, but looks like we need to up them again. Baby boy is in pain. Sad to see him this way.

Last Saturday was the twins first t-ball game. Gabby did better than expected, emotionally, She has been this bundle of emotions lately, shy and reserved. But Gary was there assisting with the team, and I think that helped her come out of her shell.
I thought she was going to breakdown because Derrick was not playing, but she surprised us all!

We have been seriously neglecting our yard. I am hoping to get to that this weekend. I want to do a little planting in the front beds and get the side yard beds assembled. This is going to be a major PITA!

Can I just say that I LOVE my Jay Oh Bee??

It really is a perfect fit. I am happy I made the choice I did. It is only day two and have learned allot. I am hopeful that this is a sign of good things to come.

Gary has been in GA the past 3 days and it has been a little stressful, with starting the new job and some news we received in regards to his snoring. Derrick's ENT appt. went smoothly but the news was not great.

Dr. Gupta could not believe that the pediatrician did not catch this. Derrick's tonsils and adenoids are the size of an adult male. You can only see pink puffy flesh when you look in his mouth. Poor dude. I feel soo bad, we thought it was allergies.

We meet with the Dr. next Monday and the surgery is scheduled for the 17th. I am scared. He will be under general anesthetic. Please say a little prayer for him and us. I was up last night checking on him a handful of times, because I was so worried. Blah , this is gonna be a slow 2 weeks. I called Gary and made him come home early, he is almost home as I type.

The kids baseball opening day is the 18th, so I guess derrick will have to miss his first game. He will be bummed, I know it.

Ahhh the joys of being a parent.
