"eating hamburgers are yummy"
"eating boogers are yucky"
This pretty much describes my week so far. I am struggling really, really hard to be positive and not have a major pity party, but I may have to whine just a little.
Also, if you are squeamish, I am going to be writing about some gross, oozing stuff, just to warn you.
Yesterday was about a 20 on the bad day scale. I had to put my beloved cat to sleep. Sure, Norman Bates had a few issues, but he kind of grew on me. You can read about him here: http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6480927676896809475#editor/target=post;postID=7065806002780510684
One of Victoria's incision's is still really infected. I was changing the dressing yesterday, when all of a sudden, the skin popped open and a bunch of yucky stuff oozed out. Now she has an inch hole in her skin. I am not easily grossed out (unless throw-up is involved, then I am outta there), but seriously, I had to close my eyes for a minute. Unfortunately, I had to deal with the problem (there is probably a moral here, but I don't really care what it is at this point). The nurse told me I had to pack the wound. This means, I have to push a gauze pad into the hole twice a day. How about that for yucky!
On the bright side, today I made it to the CVS to gather some urgent supplies for my survival. (I really gotta change my Christmas table cloth soon)
On the yucky side, my husband hid the treats so the kids wouldn't eat them and then he forgot where he put them!!!!
On another positive note, I was quite proud that I managed to make a healthy dinner tonight.
Unfortunately, I also forgot to wash utensils, so we ate with measuring spoons. No one liked the potatoes anyway, so it all worked out just fine.
Another good thing, Francesca had her pre-op appointment at the pediatrician today. (Her surgery is next Thursday. to release the rest of her fingers and toes.) She now weighs 33 pounds! That means she has gained 14 pounds in 10 months.
The bad news is that I have to carry 33 pounds around!
So, that's it so far! Feel free to write and tell me all about your exciting week so far!
