Not sure where to begin....

I can not even recall what happened the last week in august. Obviously nothing important. That brings me to Labor day weekend.

Friday, nothing really....

Saturday we have a playdate at the Smyrna water splash park, of course it is the first cool day we had! Kids still played. We had a little collision with Austin and one of Kristie's Twin girls. He fell on the concrete on his head and got small minor bump. We left after about 30 min.

We headed to Fayetteville to see my dad and his family.
Pat (dads wife) got the twins a twin jogging stroller! We stayed and played with the cousins.

My kids of course wanted to go outside and look at the cows. That was the only way Austin went to my dad was because he said " wanna go outside". He took Austin to see the cows and get the stroller. Madison, Adam and I followed about 30 min later. We stayed outside playing looking at cows and Austin sitting in dad's Mustang pretending to drive! He was in Heaven.
We went home a little while later.

Sunday Mom had her Labor day barbecue. They cooked barbecue, and hamburgers. Meemaw Poppy, Lenis, carter, Coti, Teresa, Caroline, Ash, Lisa, her kids, Aunt quanita, Denise, Jessica (matt GF), Matts friend Austin, Lisa's two friends, and jared' parents. Everyone brought a side or dessert. I made chocolate bars, ash made potato salad and broccoli cheese casserole. Boy there was a lot of food it was good!

Monday we went to the mall and Sams! Exciting huh!

Some reason my other pics are not showing up. I will post those later

Where do I begin??

After Austin's Surgery (Saturday) the next day was good they played. Adam and I went to the sale to pick up all the leftover stuff. Adams parents watched the kids while we went. We ate lunch. Got home and played more, took naps...
We all went to Toot's that night because Laura had been really wanting these Fried Pickles since last time they came. It was fun! I do not like Fried Pickles. YUCK....

Sunday we went to church. Came home ate lunch. got Krystals. We hung around the house and played with the kids. We cooked Dinner at home. Adams parents leaving in the morning.

Monday Morning they get all ready to leave. Madison would not let go of Grandma's (wanda-adams mom) Neck she laid on her shoulder for a long time. Finally she looked up and was able to let go so they could leave. They were going to stop at Ruby Falls and look out Mountain.

more to come new post easier to read that way.

The Big Day! August 25th!

Today is the day!
Austin woke up in a good mood. Despite being woke up. We got there at 8:00 at Vanderbilt childrens hospital. They had a great play area for the kids to wait in and play before being taken back. Meemaw came with us. Adams parents did not want to get up that early to leave for the hospital. we left at 6:45.

We got called back after about an hour. Austin was weighed. It was 28 lbs. He then went to pre op to get changed into a hospital pj set. He got to ride in crazy coupe cars and played and played. He then got some tylenol and Versed to calm him for when they come and take him to the OR. He looked drunk. He still cried some when they took him but once he did not see us he stopped. We went to the waiting room they took him at 10:00 and said it would take a total of an hour. We went to the food court and I got subway I was starved and it was either that or taco bell at 10 am!

We went and got a Magazine and then went back to the waiting area. They called us with in 15 min. We went to another room to wait to hear from the Dr. He did not come they just called us with in another 15 min to the recovery area.

He was in the arms of a nurse. I saw him and got him. He was not happy at all he did not know where he was and upset. He kept throwing his arms, kicking, and arching his head and back.
they gave him more versed and then a little more. He still would not calm down. He wanted the IV out but he had to drink some first. His first sip he moaned MMMM YUM.... Poor baby!

After they got the orders to take the IV out he was much happier with it out! We got him dressed and talked to the Dr.

Dr said all went great. He will be bruised, red and swollen for about a month. He sees him back in a month. We are to take the bandage off on Sunday.
Oh and I have the full understanding of what hypospadius (sp) surgery is basically his urethra is pointed the wrong way so they fixed it. He said it all even the minor circumcision fix will look perfect when all is healed.

He got home and he slept all the way home and got home and we ate some soup, grapes and bananas. He can not have any grease or cheesy for 24 hours. He still walked a little drunk.

I had to finish organizing the clothes to take to the sale today at 4. We were tagging up until 2:30am or so.
I left at 3 got ash and went to the sale to set up and shop, and help work my part.

About Madison,
She has asked for "Bubby" All day. Pretending to call him on the phone and all! Poor thing wants her brother. Austin is asking too for his "sissy".
He took a nap and after he woke up daddy was going to go get Madison from name's.

They all went to Ryan's so austin could have some Veggies and non greasy food. They said he PIGGED out, he kept eating and eating. Madison ate good too.

I got home at 9. I got 4 presents for xmas for them at the sale, I got Madison a Disney Talking princess Kitchen for $20! Got some car ramp thing for austin. and 2 other gifts.
I also got all the winter clothes minus shoes. No halloween costume either.
I got the new baby a new pack and play for 15 and a high chair for 25. I also got the kids some wooden puzzles and books for now.

What a day!

August 24th

Meemaw stayed to help me I have Caelan today too. Ash also helping. I was in and out of my Bed. Trying to rest. Adams parents, sister and grandpa came in today at 5:30. It was also Lauras bday too.

We ALL went to my moms for dinner. Madison is staying the night since Austin will have surgery the next day. This was the first time they have ever slept in different places before. Austin tossed and moaned a little. Madison was so exhausted she went right to sleep.

My surgery Update

I went on August 23rd to have a circles (sp?) . I was suppose to be at the hospital at 8 and have surgery at 10:30. My grandmother came in to be there and help with the kids. We got there and I am in my room getting Iv's and more blood drawn. The Anatheiasologist comes in and says you can not have General because you are allergic to so much and your pregnant. So I will have to have an Epidural. However he ARGUED with me from 9:00 to 1:45 that He would bet money that I was not nor anyone in my family allergic to Morphine and codeine! I am allergic to more than those two ( all narcotics) but almost everyone in my family (moms side) is allergic to Morphine and codeine! He wanted to have records from all my previous surgeries. But I could not think of any of the Dr's previous besides my last one C-section. So he got my Cesection report, and it proved to him that I did not have any narcotics and so he gave me a Marcaine/lidocaine epidural. My mom had to come get my grandmother and kids since it was taking forever and adam could not do a half day at work. SO FINALLY at 2:15 I had the procedure done. All went well, my DR and the anastheiaolgist asst sat and talked to me the whole time. He is such a nice and through dr.
All was complete in 25 minutes. I was in recovery COMPLAINING ( and before that too) I was Hungry I had not had anything to eat or drink since midnight. It is now almost 3p! So normally they do not give food in recovery but they brought me a tray with chicken strips, grilled cheese, salad, cake, and fries! I was starved!

I left at about 4p. Went home and saw my kiddos! They wanted me to pick them up so bad. I could not lift anything for a week. After that nothing heavier than them. My grandmother stayed the night.

We all went to moms for Meatloaf and potatos.

We looked at Matts pics and as he just got back from Japan 3 days ago.
