Gonna be MAY

Haha. I love that meme..

Well, I got behind with blogging again- WOOPS.
– Katie’s 9th birthday is NEXT-WEEK… no way. We’re gonna see about taking her to the zoo! Also, she has field day coming up today at school.
– Ben turned 2 months April 28th! He is smiling a lot now and should be giving us little laughs soon
– Katie gets out of school I think on the 24th.
– I got my eyebrows waxed and hair colored/highlighted/trimmed on Sunday! Took almost 5 hours lol. I love it.
– Brad is working hard at his new job and making lots of extra money!!! Hoping we can get a second car soon.
– My day consists of: taking naps when Ben does, pumping milk, feeding/changing him, watching YouTube videos, house chores, taking care of Katie, and watching a little tv at night & hanging out with hubby when hes not hanging out in the bedroom and then rinse and repeat haha.
– I took Mom to a doctor’s appointment last week and they were going to set her up with palliative care but instead sent hospice? Ummm, she’s not terminal- sooo we have to deal with talking to them and changing that. I know she looks bad but she can do everything for herself but I guess they sent hospice out because she’s 72 pounds so severely underweight and severely malnourished. It’s a long story I could go on about but hopefully we’ll get her care situated.
– I got hooked on pepsi again when I was pregnant and now have the task of getting back away from it lol. I’ve lost almost half of my baby weight but would like to lose about 35 more pounds so my first step is to get away from soda again then cut down on the amount of ice cream I eat each night- I don’t eat a LOT of it but more than I should if I want to lose weight so I’ll buy 100cal sized containers to have each night instead. Just cutting down on sugar intake and that will help with my gut balance too since I’ve been trying so hard to work on that.

Welp, time for bed! Cheers to a great Wednesday… sending positive vibes!

Hospital stay

What an interesting time I’ve had lately…

A few posts back I thought I had a breast infection but- turned out to be a uterine infection, endometritis. I went to my obgyn last Wednesday and had a 99.7 fever, felt kindof rough, red cheeks, and a tender uterus so the obgyn recommended I go over to the hospital for IV antibiotics for 24-48 hours. Ugh… Brad had let me have the car that day so he was stuck at work. I had to wait until the hospital had a bed ready for me so I just hung out at Moms then they called and said I could come in until around 9:30pm then I’d have to go in through the ER. Some people that work with Brad took him out to dinner then drove him home that night. He got back then I started to get my things together and my aunt came to sit with the kids. Katie was already in bed and Ben was in his swing. We got up to the hospital just after 9pm, I think. Long story short- I was admitted Wednesday night but they didn’t start anything until the next day. I was hoping to come home Thursday night.. nope. Hopeful for Friday morning.. nope. Obgyn came in and said they wanted me to get the full 48 hours of IV antibiotics. I was pretty upset so Brad brought Ben to the hospital Friday to hang out for a bit but I still had one more night to wait. I was finally able to go home Saturday morning and Brad came to get me around 11AM! It was so nice to be home. I’ve just been trying to rest and recover. Still a bit sore but much better than I was, for sure. I think I ended up with this infection because I had the Group B infection and wasn’t able to get the IV antibiotics when I went into labor because it was so fast and then that may have set off the infection in there. At least that’s my guess. They wanted to make sure I didn’t have any placenta left over in there and the ultrasound looked fine. I just hope it’s over and won’t come back or anything.

That’s what I’ve been up to lately! Don’t really feel like typing anymore so enjoy your Monday!
