I am sarcastic, sensitive, insecure about my body, a mom, cook, chauffer, full time worker, wife. I pretty much write about whatever comes into my head. I don't filter much so watch out!

I'm stuck in a rut but determined to be the best me I can be. I turn 40 in June 2015. Let's see if I can get my ass in gear to lose 40 pounds and run a half marathon by then.

 

Things you have to explain to out-of-towners about Dallas

thatsminethankyou:

All true. Especially #16. Come visit and we’ll get had station tacos, eat them at Klyde Warren, and prove #1 wrong!

this list is pretty funny!  I have never actually been to Reunion Tower…I live in one of the 1000 suburbs :)

The above photo was me after 2 nights in the hospital wearing the same clothes to sleep in and wear during the day. Hot…I know.

I’m feeling tired today. He wakes up in the middle of the night in pain…it’s like having a newborn again. Great reminder that I am so done having kids.

My in-laws had a big trip planned to Italy and left Monday morning (the morning after B broke his arm). I know they felt bad about leaving but it’s Italy. They are going for a wedding. My hubby’s cousin is getting married in Venice where they live. I would love to be there right now.

I will let thoughts of Venice sustain me today.

My son is home.  Thank you so much for all of your kind words and prayers.  I am back to work and grateful that my mom was able to come and stay with him.  This was a crazy situation.  I’ll break it down:

1.  Breaks arm on Easter Sunday. It’s dangling and I could see the jagged bone through the skin.  I may have freaked out and shown my true colors during a crisis situation.  My husband giving me the “pull it together” speech helped.

2. 8 hours in 2 different ER’s.  The first one didn’t have a PED Ortho Surgeon on call so we had to go by ambulance to another hospital.

3.  I started my period while in the ER…the 23 yr old nurse looked at me like I was too old to have a period and then procured me the largest maxi-pad I have ever seen.  So yay for that.

4. 2 nights sleep in a hospital room in a pseudo-bed/small couch.

5. Helping my son pee into a jug because he couldn’t get out of bed and the hospital wanted me to measure how much he peed everything single time.  He only peed on me twice which I take as a win.  

6. 14K episodes of Peppa Pig on the Kindle Fire.  Anyone else seen this show?  Bullet.to.the.brain.

6. Surgery went well and he is home.  Supposed to keep it elevated until next week.

7.  Apparently Hydrocodone has the opposite effect on him than it does on me.  I take a nap…he wants to play and run around.

8.  He’s supposed to get a cast on next week and then off again along with the pin removal in 3 weeks.  I’m supposed to keep him from doing anything like running, jumping, swinging, riding and probably walking for 12 weeks.  Really??  a 5 year old??  

9.My mom is in town.  She was reading an excerpt from a book to my 8 yr old son last night.  The title?  ”The Man Who killed Kennedy: The case against LBJ”.  Can you not read him conspiracy theory books about the 60’s?  She calls it history…

10.  My mom eats Gluten Free.  My son now wants to know if anything he eats has Gluten in it before he will let it pass his lips.

11.  I took a shower this morning, dried my hair and I have makeup on for the first time in 3 days.  FTW.

I’m pretty sure being a parent is the most thankless job on the planet. I love them but I need a drink and for them to go to bed already.

X-ray of his arm…they fixed it this morning. He has some nerve damage so they are keeping him over night. A sweet friend brought me Chex mix and wine…I am all set for the night. She even brought me a styrofoam cup to class it up a bit!

They have him a teddy bear. It will probably be listed as a line item on the invoice but he will be a happy little boy when he wakes up.

All is well

He is having surgery this morning. They won’t have to cut into his arm. They position the bones and then put pins in through the skin that will be removed later.

He has been amazing. He’s the bravest 5 year old I know. He’s grilled every nurse and doctor about what is going to happen and doesn’t miss a detail.

He has some nerve damage in his right hand but they said that should come back 100%.

Hospital since 2.  Broken humerus and elbow at the growth plate.  I’m a wreck.  We have been here since 2.  Had to go by ambulance to Children’s where they have a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.  May have surgery tonight or tomorrow but probably will need pins to put it back together.  I was a wreck but have since calmed down enough to function.  I just hate seeing him in pain.

It was literally hanging since the bones aren’t attached anymore.  I was screaming hysterically at first so that answers the questions of how I react in a crisis.  

Husband has gone home to get me stuff to stay overnight.  Baby is thirsty and hungry but since they don’t know if they are doing surgery tonight or tomorrow they won’t let him eat or drink anything.  

I’m starting to fade as the adrenalin has started to wear off.  I told him I wouldn’t drink anything until he got to drink something.
