Been Awhile

It's been about 3 weeks since my surgery and I am feeling pretty good. Some of the digestive issues have resolved themselves while some have remained. My Mom had hers out and said it can take up to 6 months for everything to get back to normal; I hope she is right.

H. took a week off to help me at home which was very nice of him. It turned out to be a little stressful as we argued a bit and I was all drugged up, so the first couple of days are a little hazy to me. Then I went to my parents for a week with Little G. It was amazing to see them get to really bond with her. And, also to not have to cook, clean, or do anything other than get my legs back under me. My parents were sad to see Little G go when we left.

Then we had Thanksgiving with most of my Mom's side of the family. There were 45 people there. It was also my uncle's 50th birthday and my second cousin's 1st birthday. It was a really nice celebration and so great to see so many of my relatives all in one place.

Little G is getting to be such a big girl already. She will be 10 months old on the 23rd. She is in mostly 12 month clothing now and some 12 to 18 month stuff. She is really tall. She is crawling everywhere and is mastering the art of couch/table/any surface surfing. She looks like she will be walking soon, but who knows when that will be. She is getting to be a little rascal, preferring to play with our magazines/books/remotes for the tv rather than her toys. I have to keep a constant eye on her. I am loving every minute of it and am so thankful I was given the opportunity to be a mom.

We are still undecided about when to try for number 2 (or if we will try). A large part of me really wants to do it, but I still am having some doubts. One of the major things is what if we decide to try via FET and it fails? Do we get back on the treatment roller coaster? I don't think I could go through that again. Oh well, we have lots of time (well, some time) to decide.
