Surgery Schmurgery!

I am up to my neck in laundry, straightening, cutting tags off new clothes (the boys', not mine), taking care of both boys as Matthew tends to the lawn, and trying to figure out if I will have time to shower today.

Basically, normal life for me.

The life that I love.

Benjamin's surgery yesterday went wonderfully. He has some steri strips on his stomach, and absolutely nothing but some internal stitches in his penis. He is slightly fussy but getting less so as the day progresses.

We were only at the hospital for five hours yesterday.

Five hours.

As opposed to ten days and seven days (his prior surgeries).

I kind of didn't know what to do with myself!

I will post more details and lots of silly and cute pictures later when the rugrats are in bed and my work is done. Plus, I think my mom and I are going to go shopping later, so I have to find time to shower!

Here is a sneak peek...



Just wanted to let you know that Benjamin Braveheart continues to amaze us with his resiliency and his determination that nothing is going to stop him from being happy and content.

And God continues to amaze me with this little person He has entrusted to me.

Glad everything went well. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Can't personally speak to pregnancy, but we have enjoyed seeing our children grow up with each other.

I'm really glad to hear how easy it was, but it is kind of sad (or maybe weird) that B & you are surgery pros. XOXOX

I am so happy to "hear" that all went well. Benjamin certainly is a resilient little boy. He is just so strong for someone so small.

Great news about Benjamin's surgery! I love that photo of him, his gown swamping his cuddly body. Angela you are a resourceful, capable, resilient and wise mother. Thank you for sharing the ups and downs and for encouraging us all. I hope Matthew gets some sleep soon - and you too perhaps? Meredith xo.
p.s. thanks for the lovely comment when I was feeling wee bit defeated. Much better now - happier, healthier times ahead....
