When my husband and I first met, I had just gotten out of a toxic relationship of 3 years. I wasn’t looking for anything serious, and neither was he, but it was almost as if the universe had called us together. We both had a bit of baggage and trust issues, and yet we were still drawn to each other. Our sweet Kane was a huge surprise. We were scared because we hadn’t been together long, but we were committed to each other; committed to our baby. There were fights and bad times, but through it all we loved each other.
As you can imagine, I get lots of comments on the ages of my children.
“You sure do have your hands full.”
“How do you do it?”
“I would go crazy.”
In response, “Yep. I have NO idea. And who said I wasn’t?”
Since there were so many of you offering your prayers and kind words, I just wanted to take a second to update everyone on my surgery hunt!
This morning my butter bean and I went in for an appointment at a urologist’s office.
They looked at all of my tests that have been done in the ER over the past year, and said they wished they could have done surgery YESTERDAY.
Here I am, sitting in my living room, nursing my little butter bean at 8 am on a Tuesday. On any typical day, I would still be in bed at this time. What makes today any different, you ask? Oh, nothing special. Just the fact that one of our little gremlins threw my husbands truck keys in the trash, so we spent 35 minutes destroying the ENTIRE house looking for them.
Normally, I would go straight back to sleep, but I had already invested too much energy into the day. So here I am, soaking in the morning rays beaming through my window, thinking….
You’re locked in a bed room when suddenly you’re thirsty. The only way to quench your thirst is for someone on the outside to bring you a drink. So you begin to call out. Over and over. Again and again. But no one ever comes.
As most of my family and friends know, along with my Facebook and Instagram followers, my four year old is EXTRA sassy. This morning she presented me with an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up. This will be the first of many “According to Lana” segments!!!
