It is so nice to be home relaxing on this lovely, Saturday evening! I've had quite the busy week at work and then today we had gymnastics and a birthday party! At gymnastics, Haylei is learning her routine that she'll do for the Coweta Fall Festival in September!! They are dancing to The Lion King! We weren't allowed to go upstairs and watch their practice today, so I don't know their moves to be able to work with her at home, but they did give us the words to the song written out, becuase the girls need to know the words, so we have homework! After gymnastics, we came home and had lunch and rested for a bit before we went to a coworker's son's birthday party. All morning long, Haylei asked if it was time to go to Maffew's birthday~she's never even met him before, but was quite excited to go!! HA! 

We had dinner with my dad at the Fish Shack, it was yummy as always! We went to his house after and Hay had lots of fun pestering him. She kept getting in his recliner and tell me "ask(tell)him to move" "ask(tell)him no." She has ask and tell confused this week! I forgot, once we left gymnastics, she was highly upset about someone, not sure if it was the extra teacher at gym or a kid, but she kept saying "she's a meanie, I don't like her now, she's meanie". So I asked her what this person said and she said "them a meanie now". She was bobbing her head around giving attitude and I couldn't quit laughing! She's such a nut!!

the day after..

Surgery went well, Dr. B said I have Stage 1 endometriosis, which I guess if you're going to have it, that is the best to have. He lasered it all out and believes that it will fix my issues!! yay!! I had a rough time waking up in recovery, they kept yelling at me to breathe! I kept thinking, "I am breathing, geeze" but my pulse ox wasn't were it should have been. I was in recovery for 2 hours becuase of this and was the last person in there. :/ AFter getting home, I couldn't stay awake for anything! My bestie, Amber, and her hubby brought us over Roy's chicken for dinner, I was able to eat a few bites of mashed potatoes and a roll. I went to bed pretty early and was going to make Matt and Haylei sleep in Emily's bed, so that she wouldn't kick me in the belly, but she cried pretty hard, so I just turned my back towards her so she couldn't get me in the belly. Today, we are just having a lazy all over the living room and lots of housework needing to be done, but I suppose that will just have to wait till I can get up and down easier.

Something else going on in our house today is...Emily is moving into her dorm at ORU. It is a very, bittersweet day! She is such a wonderful  young lady and such a blessing to have in our life!

Surgery day

Today is the day I have my laparoscopy to check to see if I have Endometriosis. Dr. B seems to think I probably do have it, so if I do, he'll have a laser on stand-by to zap out what he can. And then when I go back to see him at my followup he'll let me know if I have to do Lupron injections. I am praying so hard this morning, that I will not have it and my uterus will be clear!! I have faith that it will be a good report. Yesterday I spent the day getting prepared for today and this weekend, since I'll be sore and not able to get out and about in the 120 degree heat (ha!). I went and got groceries, a pedicure, something new and comfy to wear home today and then last night  I got to do what so many people would be jealous of....I got to do a bowel prep! Whoohoo!!! NOT! The first few glasses I thought, "Hey, I can do this!", but by the 5th glass I was gagging and sputtering! It was awful! I don't think it was that the salty taste was quite so bad, but it was the shear volume of liquid I was trying to drink. I was never so happy to down that last glass and throw that dad-gum bottle away!!!

My mom, step-dad, hubby and my sister's kids and My sweet Haylei are all going to the hospital with me and take care of me!! I am so glad that I'll have them all out there. :)
