Today I wanted nothing more in the world than to stay at home with my kids. I don’t like taking Ember out and about so much, exposing her to germs.
But I’d already signed Sierra up, and paid for, a fun little class at the local recreational center. And I had an appointment with a surgeon for my gallbladder issues.
So off we went. We had to leave the house by 8:30am to get to Sierra’s class and can I just say THAT WAS HARD! Getting FOUR kids ready in the morning and leaving the house before 1pm… near impossible! lol
I was going to take Brooklyn and Payson to the park while we waited for Sierra but it was raining. Normally I’d still let them play in the rain (fun!) but we can’t with Ember 🙁
Instead they had a snack while we waited in the hall.
Which actually turned out to be fun because we just sat and talked.
I feel weird when I nurse in public even though I’m totally covered.
Brooklyn had fun taking pictures of a bunch of things. I have some of the floor, a chair, the wall, and then a few like this:
I had my appointment with the surgeon next. But first Ember needed to be changed.
And then ten minutes later Payson needed to be changed.
These leather couches in the waiting room were SO comfy that when I got home I called Allan and told him we should start saving to buy some. ha
I can schedule a surgery to have my gallbladder removed at any time. They were going to schedule it in the office but I still have worries so I put it off.
On the drive home I broke down sobbing out of fear and confusion… I’ve read for hours (while nursing Ember at night) about gallbladders from a million different sources and I’m just SO sick of thinking about it!
Right this second I’m just going to stick to a very low fat diet because I don’t want to worry about surgery while I have a newborn and three other kids to take care of and no help.
