It's dooonnneee!!

Ok, so yesterday I didn't wake up after surgery so well. I was in a lot of pain, crying, so they ended up giving me 4 different kinds of pain meds (and 2 differet nausea meds because I was so nauseated too) I remember hearing DH telling the nurse that I don't even take something as simple as tylenol since I hate taking meds, but that I must been in horrible pain for it to make me cry like I was and he said I kept apologizing for acting like a baby. Once we finally got home, I took some more pain meds and went to sleep. I'd wake up every so often in pain because it hurt to change positions or I had to go pee. Got up for a little bit and tried eating even though I was still nauseated. Ate something soft, then took a phenergan for nausea. Then did a cyle of sleep, take meds, go potty, sleep, etc all night.

Woke up this morning and my right side feels a WHOLE lot better. My left side still hurts, esp when I have to stand/sit, but funny thats the same side that took longer to heal with my 2 c/s. Maybe once I take my bandage off this afternoon, it'll feel even better.

My tubes are approx 3.5cm and 4.5cm (not sure which length for which side) and on an interesting note, I've noticed some of my PTLS symptoms are already better!


Thanks and Glory be to God and to my wonderful surgeon, Dr K!

Tomorrow is the big day!

I have to be at the surgical center by 11am and surgery is supposed to start at noon. I can't believe its really here!!!! I'm so excited, yet the nerves have kicked in too. I just hope I'm able to get a little more sleep than I have had the last two night.

Almost time!

Only five days until the reversal now! I got my pre-op call from the hosptial today to go over my health history and everything. It only took about 10 minutes, pretty simple. Meanwhile, I've been getting everything else done around here. I have about 5 items left to make so I'll be caught up on embroidery orders and I'll go to the grocery store on Tuesday to make sure we have enough food here since I won't know how I feel until after surgery.

In other news, I am now an official 'minivan mom' now. Our other car fit our three booster/carseats fine, but there would be no room to add a fourth so we decided to go ahead and shop for minivans. Well, I've been looking for about 2-3 months now and we finally found something we really liked. So we went to test drive it and ended up getting it. Yes, I like to prepare for things maybe a little too much (considering I'm not pregnant yet), but the kids could use the extra space back there regardless. Plus, the van has rear air controls which will be very nice this summer since it gets so hot down here and not much air circulates back there for them in our other vehicle.

Here is some pics of our new ride!

3 weeks

T minus 21 days....and counting! :-)


My last AF before the reversal finally showed up today! And with any luck and lots of wishful thinking, this will be the last non pregnant cycle I have the rest of the year. Fingers crossed!
