Still Recovering

It has been 2 weeks since my hernia surgery and I am still recovering. Let me just say that it is quite difficult not being able to lift your children when they are as young as mine. So...there have been people "helping me" almost everyday and I am getting tired of always having visitors. I do appreciate the help but look forward to being "normal" again. Go Steelers!

Did that catch your attention? It has been the week from hell! Although I would never trade my baby, I must say that it was my pregnancy that gave me these 3 holes in my abdomen. Surgery was pretty bad and I have a nasty vertical scar to prove it. Had a hard time coming out of anesthesia which bought me a longer stay at the hospital. Then had a brief trip back to the ER due to an allergic reaction to one of my various meds! Now I have a rash and can't feel my lips, and I am unable to take my pain killers or antibiotic since they aren't sure WHAT I am having the reaction to. Just gets better and better. Surgery was Monday. Can't believe it is only Saturday. LONGEST WEEK EVER! This is way worse than a c section (of which I had 2), and at least with that you get a baby. I hope I can feel my lips tomorrow...
