Flashbacks. I have been experiencing them. This surgery has caused visions of bed rest, monitors, and Pooh Trays to dance in my head. I am not sleeping too well these days, but Laci has been gracious enough to lend me her bed since mine is like the 'Princess and the Pea.' That's what my sister and I joke that my bed is like because it is so high. Even at 5'10", it is a literal stretch to climb onto at night.
Hot Flashes. I am having these as well. I think it's because of my plastic baby drain tubes adorning my neck on a necklace . This surgery has also caused me to move, feel, and look like a pregnant woman. Seriously. I am not kidding. I have to hunch. My drain tubes eew...I know are in just the right place to push out and look suspicious. Although anyone that thinks that is a baby must think I am having a baby letter opener. Sometimes they protrude straight out of my clothing like one. When I was pregnant, the doctors said I had the coldest room in the hospital. The thermostat would not physically go below 60 and mine was set to 60 and I was still hot. They brought sweaters to examine me. Robb always looked like an Eskimo wearing a parka huddled on stretcher number 2 next to me. Sometimes he would remove his arm from beneath his cocoon of blankets to shake a technicians hand. :)
Back Flips. I won't be doing any of these for a while don't get your hopes up. But, in an effort to change my kids eating habits we tried something new for breakfast. And one could say that I am doing a proverbial back flip at the success of it all. Since I have to eat gluten free, I usually eat foods that are natural and as close to what health experts like to call "living foods." But, my kids have been eating the "old way" and habits are hard to break even in four year olds. God has been convicting me of this and I do not want them to ever suffer as I have so we are changing our ways. I am not saying that our plates will never see another chicken nugget from McDonald's, because they will, but today was day 1 of a new way of consumption for all of us. So, today, we experimented with blueberry protein smoothies sweetened with Truvia and they were quite a hit.
