Tracy had surgery

I had surgery last Wednesday, to have my umbilical hernia repaired.  I guess the doctor found another one forming as well when she went in, so she repaired both hernias.  This is not fun, I am taking Vicodin for the pain.  I couldn’t shower for two days, I was so glad when Saturday came because thats when I got to shower.  Ifelt so gross.  The worst part of this is I can’t pick up anything 10 pounds or heavier for 4 to 6 weeks.  Which means I can’t lift my boys up and hold them, I am able to nurse Josiah but that is about it.  When Brett goes back to work we have to have someone come and take care of the boys for me.  My mom can’t help out because she just had surgery herself.  I feel like I am a useless mom not able to do anything for my family right now, but I know if I don’t follow orders than it can reaccur again.  Greggory is wanting to be with me at times and it’s hard to tell him I can’t pick him up.  So, I sit down and have Brett put him on my lap.  He sits there for maybe a minute or so and then he is done with momma time.

I appreciate Brett, he is taking on so much right now.  He has to take care of me, the kids and then he will have to go back to work and provide for us as well.  He has done so much for me this past year, I don’t know what I would have done without him.  I love him so much.  He is very good husband and father.  I am proud of him as well.
