my gallbladder

My surgery is scheduled for August 11th at 7:30 a.m. pending the results of an EKG.
I'm a little nervous, but right now, it is kind of aching a bit, so fare thee well, gall bladder, thanks for taking care of my bile for 52 years!

What a day!

First of all, I had a lovely lunch with my brother Stan. It was good to see him and in good spirits. Tegan went to the hospital for that test and it seems that urine is flowing back to her kidneys, and that caused the UTI. Her pediatrician should be calling Noah and Shannon by Monday at the latest about this condition. We don't know what this means, so hopefully it is something minor and Tegan will grow out of it. Shannon thought her incisions split, so I rushed her to the doctor. It was just fluid that had gathered around her incision and escaped through a small hole.

Well, I didn't get to see the kids last night! Today, Tegan goes to the hospital for that urinary/bladder flush.
I am praying all goes well. Last night, we had the pleasure of Bailey stopping by!
She is looking a little thick around the middle, I suspect by the end of the month, she'll have a visible baby bump. She is such a smart and witty young woman!

Tegan's favorite place

I really like to go to the mall with MomMom and PopPop!
The play area is nice, but I really like to go to the pet store!
The fish are cool...
and so are the puppy's!
I love the little furry creatures!
Look over here!
Now this would make a great pet! A chinchilla! Can we get him?

One month old!

Soybean is one month old already! He is such a good baby!

Sunday at the lake

It was a beautiful morning, so we packed up and went to the lake. This time, we had a bucket and shovel and a ball, so Tegan played in the sand. In fact she didn't seem as interested in the water this time and when she did go in, she didn't want to be in her swim ring!

Family matters

Well, thank you God, for my brother Chris's successful pancreas surgery.
He is recovering well and Heather, I feel for you that you have to deal with
him not being able to eat solid food for a while!

As for me, it looks like I will have to have my gall bladder removed :(
I feel anxious about it, but I would rather get it out before I experience the pain that others have when their gall bladder goes bad.

Sleepy beans

Yep, the little guy is at it again! Zzzzzzzzz!

Batter up!

Take me out to the ball game!
Bases are loaded, Tegan is on first!
Uh oh, a squatter!

Mountain retreat

Ah Cunningham Falls State Park!
Testing the waters!
This is so much bigger than my pool!
Lazy day on the lake!
Just floating...
Me and PopPop!
I can get use to this!
Time to relax and have a drink!

On Saturday, we took Tegan to Cunningham Falls and she loved it. Next time, we will bring toys for her, since she tried to make away with every bucket, shovel, and toy belonging to other kids. That's always awkward. She loved the water so we will be going there more often.

So, I wake up at 5:00 this morning to a rumbling sound/sensation. I thought to myself, wait, that's a pretty big truck passing by. Then I thought, wait, this house doesn't shake for any reason....and I chuckled to myself about the possibility of an earthquake. Sure enough, it was an earthquake! A 3.6 magnitude earthquake centered in Germantown! Go figure!

An evening with the kids

Oh, Good, MomMom and PopPop are watching us tonight!
Why did they stick me in this donut thing...I feel so vulnerable!
Oh no, the hand!
okay, why is she putting her finger in my belly button?
Put em up, put em up!
Oh, please say it's bedtime soon!

Updates on the kids

Tegan has to have testing done on her bladder, to make sure all is ok. I'm not sure the tests have been scheduled!
Sawyer gained a whole pound in one week!

Oh, and lucky me gets to have a scan on my gallbladder!
