I went back to my surgeon today for a follow-up and I'm healing well! Good news is he said I can lift Brady as long as it doesn't hurt and stop doing anything that hurts. Then, we talked about our non-existing future baby 2.0. IF c-section is the case for the next baby, he said that he will work with the OB during the surgery to make sure that the mesh does not get ruined.
Most OB's do not have knowledge of the bowels and more than just to get that baby out so having him there would be best so that I don't have to go through the surgery again, or have them reattach mesh after the c-section (which happens a lot if the hernia reappears during pregnancy but the way he attached the mesh makes this less likely to happen.) Knowing that was so much more reassuring!
He also noticed a mole on my arm and showed some concern about the coloring and size. I showed him another that I have had as long as I can remember. So much so that I almost cried when he ended up burning it off five minutes later (and not from pain.)
It was right between my boobies and they don't look the same without their little friend.
It was a bit awkward when he wanted me to spread them so he could do his work but we are good friends now.
I go back in a month to see how I am doing and then he will remove the other mole and have it looked at for melanoma.
The fun never ends in this house! :)
So, what did I go home and do? Picked up bubba and we went shopping, and had a grand ol time!
Regarding yesterdays post about daycare woes, I hope I didn't come off as whiny or that daycare is the root of all evil. I am pro daycare..probably more than a lot of people...I mean I worked in one for over 3 years and watched how much it benefited the kids.
I remember how I loved those kids and treated them like I would have my own. I hope I find someone just like me back then!
I was just hoping that our situation would work out longer and it didn't. We have had too many issues with reliability and schedules that Brady needs more consistency. We got in many situations where we had no idea who was going to watch him, and there were many times one of us had to take off because someone canceled last minute. It's been stressful in some ways so consistency for us will be good too.
We got lucky in the retrospect that my mom was unemployed and had plenty of time to devote to her favorite grandchild. So, I am putting on my big girl pants and looking for the perfect person to take care of my favorite baby!
I'll be honest though. There might be some tears.
