When mom is sick – part 2

Posted 03-27-2013 at 03:08 PM by whitneywalters

We have a diagnoses and I do have gall stones, multiple gall stones. I will be headed for surgery soon. While the thought of going under the knife does not thrill me, I want this fixed because I am so tired of being in so much pain all the time.

My older two kids have been really understanding about mommy being sick. They want to help me feel better and keep asking what they can do to help me. The doctor gave me some pain killers to help while I wait and they have been making me feel a little out of it, so when I am laying down, all the kids love to lay with me and snuggle. The younger two do not really understand but they still like to snuggle with me.

My husband has pretty much taken over all the house work for me. I do what I can when I am feeling okay. I still do school with the kids and do most of the cooking. Once I have surgery I know Chris is going to have to take over everything for at least a couple days. Since he can not take more than a couple days off work the plan is that if I still need help I will spend the day out at my parents house so mom can help while still being there for her goats ( they just had a bunch of babies, one of which has to be bottle fed ) and then I will come back home when Chris is off work.

I can not wait for this whole thing to be over. I want to get back to my life, not deal with pain all the time and actually enjoy food again. Being worried about everything you eat is not any fun.
