Background

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

It has been three weeks post op and I am finally starting to get around town. It doesn't take much to wear me out though. I am going a bit stir crazy at home. I am ready to head back to work. Just hope I can handle a full work schedule when they give it to me. I have at least a week before that happens though.

Our poor dog gets the worst separation anxiety while we are out and about. You wouldn't know it to look at him. He his so sweet! Today I was given an ultimatum by the landlords. He has woke the neighbors up one too many times. We either need to put him in a doggie daycare, or he will have to go. So I have until I go back to work to find somewhere to take him.

He was home alone this AM because little Love Bug K. needed to have some major dental work done at the surgical center. They wanted us there at the crack of dawn. We didn't get home until around noon. Yeah, he was home alone all morning. Not good. The Love Bug did really well, and then slept all afternoon too. She seems to handle the anesthesia well. Which is always a good thing.

That is all I have for today. Talk to you soon.

Surgery

I need to post updates more often. Well, the latest with me is that last year I had the BRCA gene testing done and found I was positive for a mutation with the BRCA II. Two surgeries were recommended. I had one last summer and the other just last week. This took my cancer risk from nearly 80% down to something like 0.02%. That is less than the average woman. I am happy and have absolutely no regrets as far as that goes.

Now I just need to finish healing from this last surgery. It has not been fun. They think there may be an infection trying to set in. I have been having a lot of pain on the right side. More so than on the left. With my last surgery I had gone off of the pain meds by know and was out running (walking) errands and doing a lot more than I am now. I tried to do the same this time and I am in too much pain. The meds they have me on just knock me out too. It is going to take a while to get back to driving I think. My appointment with my surgeon is tomorrow. Wonder what she will say. Sometimes it hurts with the chest expansion when I breath. The pain is even starting down my arm today. It wasn't that bad yesterday when I was at the ER. At least they gave me antibiotics just in case. Yea, I am such a wuss when it comes to pain.

Anyway, except for that, everything is looking good. Incision sites look good, I have decent range of motion, I am up walking around. Gave myself a shower yesterday. Been doing laundry. Just need to stay on top of the pain is all.

I will post again later.

Flour, flour everywhere!

The Christensen Family http://hc-christensenfamily.blogspot.com/
My girls got into the flour multiple times this last weekend.  I don't know what I am going to do with them sometimes.  I scrubbed Pebbles hair three times with shampoo but realized after she got out that she still had some flour paste matted on her scalp that made it look like she had really bad dandruff.  Oh dear!

Summer Time




I love these pictures of the munchkin.  Unfortunately, the Scarlet O'hara dress has now fallen apart as she would wear it so much.  My girls love to dress up.


This picture was taken at the Lake while we were taking a walk around the greenbelt.  The girls love to look at and collect rocks.


I sure need to update this more often.  Now that I have the Blogger app on my phone hopefully I can do that more easily.  Anyway, these are the most recent professional pictures we had done of the girls.  Aren't they adorable?  This was for Christmas 2011.
