Rallying

I have always been a pretty resilient type. I pride myself on my scrappiness and ability to bounce back. In fact our family motto is "never give up" and we really don't. All this being said this was a very tough week for me. All I had operated on was a lousy finger and it took me down for the count. My hand hurts terribly so I have to take the pain meds. The pain meds hurt my stomach and make me groggy. The way my hand is bandaged to protect the new piece of bone I can't do ANYTHING with my left hand. (I thought I had it bad after the initial break...)

It's been a little tough to take. I fully expected that after a couple of days I would be back to my normal self (minus a few fingers). Instead I was either in bed or on the sofa until yesterday. Yesterday I decided it was time to rally. So once the girls got on the bus (with help from Daddy) I got up. I gutted it out all day and stayed up. It was tough but it felt better to be a part of the world. I am hoping this trend continues.

I go back to the surgeon on Tuesday and I hope to get more details on what comes next. As of right now I have no idea how long the cast stays on or how many stitches I have or if the bone is even "taking". There is always a chance that the tumor will regrow instead of the bone. So a lot rides on this appointment. In my optimistic head I always assumed that by Christmas I would be back to normal (with no cast)... I am thinking that was little more than optimism. Oh well... I guess it just means less cooking for me. :D

It's really hard when recovery is slower than you'd like or expect. I know.

Take it one day at a time and remember that pushing too hard is only going to set you back.

cut yourself some slack. Maybe this is the Universe's way of telling you to be a little lazy this week! Of course it's not the exact kind of break one would want, but in the spirit of "carpe diem" I say stay in your jammies and phone it in!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
