I'm not alone....

on the timing!!
Hope you all had an outstanding Christmas.
Every year we attend the Miller's Christmas Eve open house and I didn't want this year to be any different, so I got my sorry butt in the shower and threw on some yoga pants! Fred came home from work feeling nauseous and feverish and it just got worse through the night with abdominal pain and back pain.
The last time he saw his urologist to check his kidneys, he told him he has a large gallstone and if he ever has pain with a fever and/or jaundice to go to the ER. He was trying to avoid that so that he could see the girls open their gifts Christmas morning, so we looked like morons checking his face and eyes for jaundice all night!
As soon as we all finished with the gifts, we headed to the hospital. He has multiple kidney stones and that gallstone, so he's on pain meds, has to have an ultrasound of the gall bladder and see his urologist again.
We're falling apart!!
Our Christmas Day was indeed different, but could have been worse. :)
I'm pretty much recovered from Tuesday's surgery. A little sore, but not bad and the stitches are getting pretty itchy!
I'm off until Jan. 5th. Looking forward to the Badendyck's annual open house tomorrow and visiting with some more family for Christmas next weekend!
Last, but certainly not least, we have a certain little someone's birthday coming up! She says she wants a "pretty pink flower party", so that's what she'll get. :)

My amazing timing...

I had emergency surgery 10 years ago, for an ectopic pregnancy the day before a fairly large 30th birthday party I was throwing for Fred. Thankfully I have fantastic family and friends and the party went on while I laid on a chaise enjoying Percocet.
Five months later I went into preterm labor with Sophia and was hospitalized the week before Christmas for what turned out to be a three month stay. A lot of the same family and friends celebrated Christmas with me in the hospital and they kept coming for the duration.
This past Saturday I started having pretty bad sharp pains in my lower left abdomen that just persisted. Tuesday I spent the day in the hospital ruling out a kidney stone and diverticulitis. Their conclusion was that I had calcifications on the left ovary and fibroids. They gave me pain medication that ended up making me reallllly sick and told me to follow up with my ob/gyn. Wednesday things were getting worse, saw the ob/gyn and had an ultrasound. There are only two fibroids that are only 1 cm. big, not causing any problems. They did find fluid indicating that a cyst had burst, but with my symptoms he really feels that the ovary that was involved with the ectopic pregnancy is twisted and needs to come out. They had removed the middle third of the tube and reattached it and he thinks that as scar tissue has formed, this is what has happened and that's causing all of the pain.
SO, Tuesday he's going to remove it. Should be a one day deal. Kinda stinks to be recovering over Christmas, but what can you do?!
The girls got their Christmas pj's from Auntie Kathy yesterday. Alena did not know what to make of the light up elf slippers and Sophia hasn't taken them off since! Thank you Aunt Kathy!!
We are getting a pretty large snow fall today that is so pretty. I've been sitting by the fire all day and the girls made a gingerbread house.
Merry Christmas everyone!!

The Homestead with lots of photos!

We're unpacked and finally able to relax. This house is so peaceful. We went and got a real tree since everything is in storage and had lots of fun with that. The next thing is to get using the fireplaces in here!
The contract for the new house was sent over to our attorney yesterday. Things are moving along.

QUICK update!!

We have moved into the farm house and love it!! I open the front door in the morning to see the pond and deer everywhere and it's so nice to watch the horses.
We are still unpacking, getting settled and have no cable or house phone yet. We also obviously have a new address! If you would like it, comment or message me and I will send it to you!!
We just picked up our Christmas cards yesterday and will get them out as soon as we are sane again. Haha!!
