Nap-time and Feeding Tubes

Normally, I blog about things that have gone wrong, Wendy being sick, or my opinion on something concerning special needs children/moms.

This, however, is pretty humorous (even though I didn't think so at the time).

I laid Wendy down for a nap around 1:00. I was hoping she'd fall asleep quickly so that I could nap too. I'd had a headache, no, not a headache, a migraine since I woke up at 9:00. 

You're all probably thinking "ooo she got to sleep in, how lucky" NOT! I was up from 3:00am- 6:30am with my little Tator Tot. 

Ok, back to laying her down.... I changed her diaper and hooked her up for a feed and put her in her crib. I go back to my bedroom to sit in the dark until Wendy falls asleep.  When I look at the monitor, she was tangled 100 different directions. So I went in and unhooked her. Then she unsnapped the bottom of her sleeper and pulled it up where she could reach her tube. She pulled all the dressing and Mepilex off and tried to eat it. So I went back in there took the rest of the dressing off and even unhooked the extension so she wouldn't have anything to pull on.  For a while, she tried to pull at her button through her sleeper them she got frustrated and unsnapped the bottom and pulled her legs out... and then TOOK OFF HER DIAPER. I walked in and she was playing with the diaper and laughing about it, all with her bare tushie shining. I couldn't help but laugh.

Finally I taped her button down, put on a new diaper, and got a zip up sleeper. I laid her back down. By this time it was 2:30-ish.  After fussing for about 5 mins she finally passed out and slept until 4:45. So did I ;)

Mommy’s Surgery.

This doesn’t have anything to do with Wendy per say, but it has to do with me, her mom. Some of you may or may not know I had to have surgery last month. I had been told they thought I had endometriosis and I could start treatment right away, but the only way I’d know for sure if I had it was if I had a laparoscopy. So I went into surgery thinking they were going to find the endometriosis, burn some of it away and then I’d start the lupron shots. Well when I woke up, I was told I did not have endometriosis, rather I had 2 cysts/tumors growing and he removed them. When I woke up, I was ready to go home. They asked if I needed any more pain medication through my IV and I said no so they said I could go home as soon as I could pee. I asked them which way was the bathroom and the nurse said, we’ll get you a wheel chair. I decided to just walk.  After I got back to my room, she took out my IV and handed me my discharge papers and instructions. I had to leave in a wheelchair (hospital policy lol). Once I got home, I told my mom I wanted to be alone, so I propped up on pillows and took my pain meds and slept off and on all day. When Zed got home, he had Wendy with him. He helped out about changing diapers and doing her care at night, but starting the day after surgery, I was back doing everything for Wen (except in the afternoons because Zed helped a lot then). I hurt pretty badly for about a week, but after that week, I’ve felt fine. I’ve even had a period and didn’t cramp and hurt like usual.

Sorry this post is so late…. I am going to try to catch up on some things I have missed, like Wendy’s birthday for example.

But if you follow Wendy on Facebook then you shouldn’t be behind because I update there every day.
