Surgery Numero Dos

Yep, that's right. I had shoulder surgery at the beginning of December making this my second within a two month period. Using one arm is difficult, but trying to nurse a growing little boy and having Tyler do my hair were definite downsides. I can't even say how sad I was that I couldn't even hold my little baby. This was the best we could do....Since, Tyler has been gone for two weeks I have been staying at my parents. It's been nice to have the help but, I'm so excited for the hubs to get home today. My poor parents have sacrificed a lot of sleep helping me. London literally refused to go to sleep for all of her naps and every night. Funny enough, the day before Tyler left London fell asleep on our kitchen stool mid-yelling that she wasn't going to take a nap! The only way we could get her to take a nap was a drive everyday. Unfortunately, I made a midnight drive one night because she was so hyper and Poppa and Mimi were tired as well as me! Maddie has also been a big help changing diapers galore. The week after my surgery I was foolish enough to schedule Madden's four month check-up. I'm just glad Mimi was okay taking us there, taking care of me, and taking care of a four month old who just had shots. This is in addition to an attitude-consumed two year old. YIKES! If I wrote every funny, clever, or mean thing London said during this two week period I could fill a book. At least Madden was good....right? Did I mention how excited I am for Tyler to get home!!!!!

I am so sorry that sounds just miserable. I can sort of relate when I was sick with Mastitis I couldn't even carry Genevieve or walk to the bathroom... my mom had to do everything for me. I can't even imagine putting a two year old with attitude on top of that.

That sounds rough to say the least. Your mom is great to help out like that. I had surgery thanksgiving week and unlike your picture my post operative pictures looked a fright. You're gorgeous even with your husband doing your hair!
