So, last week my two lovely children had surgery... yes... both of them... yes, on the same day. I know most people think I am crazy, but when I explain it... they are like... "Oohhh... smart". (whether they actually mean it or not is a different story.) The Eldest - E had her adenoids taken out... she has been a noisy breather, and as the last few years have passed has had lots of nasaly type issues. Low and behold she had behemoth adenoids. The little one - K had both tonsils and adenoids out - because she had one tonsil that was crazy out of control BIG (not to mention strep throat too many times to count this past year, choking on food... mouth breathing..)
I did them both at the same time because they are supposed to be quiet... not do too much activity after surgery... eat soft blandish foods... and well it's easier if both are down at the same time and now riling each other up... not to mention if one had it and told the other it was AWFUL... it would be WW12 here... to get the second one thru it.
Anyhow, they both did remarkably great except for 2 nights where K kept me up because she was in pain and well she was all drugged out... but we have turned the corner, both kids are eating and drinking well... and are at a minimal pain level.
I have been off of work... and not exercising because of doting on them non-stop since the surgery. I have been watching what I eat - as it goes into my mouth... not always making the right choices, but stopping and not beating myself up over it... because when I do that... I eat MORE!
I am happy to report a -4 lb over the last week (I weigh in on Mondays, on my trusty scale) for a total of 12lbs in the month of June. I enjoy blogging, although I don't think anyone even reads this thing (tap tap, is anyone there???) And marvel reading other blogs about life, crafts, cooking, weight loss and fitness but I am still struggling with putting my actual weight on here... I am trying to work myself up to that. Maybe a goal for this month?
Trying to keep it real!
