i am feeling tons better--thank you all for the good advice, but it looks like I am just going to pull through naturally. Phew!
My c-section doesn't seem to play into my days anymore--in fact I would say that I have been mothering at about 75% speed with no pain or issues-- terrific! The Doctor said 8 weeks and maybe he was right. It has only been 7 weeks...
My shoulder is coming along, and it is getting better everyday. I can move it across my body and just have to be careful.
5 years ago today I had my baby Casey at home--in fact by now, 7 pm, we were all tucked in bed eating Papa John's vegetable pizza-- I think my husband had one slice and i had SEVEN. I was hungry!!!
We had a nice day today with Casey, he got a real tool box (am I nutso?) and a skateboard. These are the things he craves--no books or clothes or playdoh for mister 5-going-on-15--but he is really happy with his Big Boy gifts and we even did something summery and "normal", we went to a small beach with another family. 2 weeks ago I couldnt "do" the grocery store and now I had a huge day at the beach and feel completely ok. i am doing some gentle ab exercises that involve not much more than "sucking it in" while standing up, but it is getting easier to do so--my side profile when I dont try to get it together is like 7 months pregnant, just from the complete lack of musculature...sigh. but I dont feel like a cracked in half Pez Dispenser anymore, not at all, and could even do stuff like change diapers while half way bent over a towel on the ground outdoors today-- could/would have NEVER just so recently!
Pics soon and big announcements...
happy birthday dear homeborn baby Casey! unlike what I am supposed to say, hell yeah it feels like 5 years. The time has NOT flown by. It actually feels like that was about 15 years ago.
