Just a Brief Update

This week has been full of ups and downs. On Friday I received the news that yes I do have gallstones and my Dr was referring me to a surgeon. I was terrified and yesterday I got to meet my surgeon. After a 30 minute discussion we both came to the conclusion that yes it does need to come out. I am going to have laproscopic surgery on Tuesday June 1st. I am a little scared but everyone I talk to says it is a piece of cake. I have never been cut before except when delivering my daughter and that was just an episiotomy or whatever its called. That healed quickly. The part that terrifies me is that they are going to put me under general anesthesia. I will be fine though I must stay positive. Today I preregistered for the surgery and Monday I will go in for my preop clearance.

On a positive note today my husband accomplished one of the biggest things in his life. No we did not get remarried. He finished his very last class. He is now a college graduate. Yes it is not official until August 14th when he wears his cap and gown but I am still glowing. I will have my husband back and my partner and it is an incredible feeling. I hope my children see how much my Ro has sacrificed to get this far but you are never to old to accomplish your dreams and get an education.

I am really looking forward to this weekend. I am not sure of our plans yet. I just wanted to do a brief update. I am trying to keep up really I am. Just so many things on my mind. I have included a few pictures of the kids so far this month. Enjoy and I will definitely keep you all up to date on the latest 3Ros episode.

Well Crap

I have been neglecting this blog again. It is very hard to keep up here and take care of two kids on my own for most of the week. But alas there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Only 1 week and 1 day until my love is finished with school. His graduation will be on August 14th but I am so glad we made it.

Mother's Day weekend was a success.  On Saturday we were driving around town getting groceries and such when Big Ro  asked are we hungry? The kids replied but of course. I looked to my left and looking back at me was Olive Garden a favorite resturaunt of mine for sure. We went in and Lil Ro behaved like a Saint. I even got to order my favorite dish Lasagna and eat every single bit of it.

Sunday we decided to BBQ. We had brats and hamburgers. The kids played on the playground while I and Ro cooked the day away. We held hands and watched the kids it was very nice.

The following morning I woke up with a pain in my side. It was in between my shoulder blades favoring the right side. I told Ro I really need to get to the doctor for this. I called our Family dr and they squeezed me in for a 330 appointment. I get there and they do all the tests. They think it is my gall bladder. I have a ultrasound tomorrow to confirm this diagnosis and if it is that I will be looking at surgery. I will be honest. I am terrified of surgery but I know I can pull through. This is what basically has happened lately. I hate to be abrupt. I will keep everyone informed when I know more details.
