Oh SO Busy has been a VERY long time since I have posted.  But I have been very busy making bows.  Take a look at the items I've been making on Etsy.  There is a link on the left side of my blog.  I promise to have an update post soon.  There are lots of things to update everyone on.  Stay tuned!  :)

Successful Surgery and The Boredom

The surgery was a success.  I have two small incisions which I am thankful for.  My orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Scott "Tosh" Atkins, is wonderful.  He is part of the UOC group here in Tuscaloosa and I highly recommend him for any type of orthopaedic surgery.  I did have a small reaction to the morphine.  I've had morphine before but this is the first time I had a reaction.  I'm in more pain today than yesterday since all of the good pain medicine has worn off and the swelling and bruising is pretty bad.  So, they gave told me to keep my arm elevated as much as possible. 

Here is a before picture of my cyst.  We have nicknamed it "The Alien" since it appeared overnight.

Here is an after picture and yes I am in my PJ's...sorry about that.  :)

The biggest thing is that boredom is starting to set in, so I decided to attempt to do a post one-handed.  I seem to have a hard time sitting still.  It is so quiet at home since William has been staying with his Grammie.  She is going to bring him over today so I can see him.  The first night my Grandmother and William both spent the night with my Mom so she could be with me during the surgery.  William was so excited that he was getting to have a spend-the-night party with Grandmother.  He loves her so much!  I so wish I had some video from that night because I am sure it was priceless!

Halloween 2010 - My Little Super Hero!

For Halloween William was my little Spiderman!

William's Birthday

I'm trying to get caught up posting things so I figured I would start with William's 3rd birthday party from the end of October 2010.  William insisted having a "Monster Truck" birthday party, so we decided to have it in The Country.  It was tons of fun and both the kids and adults had a great time.

Wednesday's The Day

My surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday morning.  I will be out of work the remainder of the week and I hope that I will be back to work on Monday.  However, the total recovery time is 6-8 weeks so this is going to be an interesting few weeks to say the least.

Surgery Time?

Tomorrow is the day that I will find out when my surgery will be.  Since I failed my Carpal Tunnel nerve test on Wednesday, I will have both the cyst removed and the Carpal Tunnel surgery at the same time.  I am hoping that I get to have it as soon as possible, but we'll see.  In the meantime, I have all the shopping done and the house clean just in case it is sooner than later. 

UA Gym Tide Time

Friday night we went to cheer on the UA Gym Tide.  They were competing against Boise State and beat them 196.325 to 195.000.  William and Perkins had a great time dancing to the music and devouring popcorn.  I was going to get some pictures of them, but William wasn't feeling very photogenic that night.  If anyone has a chance to go to a meet, I highly recommend it.
