Yesterday I took Jalena to Bass Pro Shops to visit Santa! She was so excited! The whole way there she was talking about how she was going to sit on his lap, tell him ho,ho,ho , give him a high five and kiss him on his cheek! lol..well She did great! All he got was a high five and she sat just long enough for me to snap some pics!
It has been too long since I have posted!! I can never find time to sit down and write something, yet still find time to stalk other peoples blogs! Jalena has turned 2, and is definitely in her terrible 2's stage!! She is loving school, and talks so much! She adores her baby dolls, Elmo, playing Doctor, and reading books! Jalena is so excited to be a big sister! Miss Tiana is due February 8th! Yes, I'm pregnant! Very pregnant! lol, 31 weeks to be exact~! Yes, I am the only one who spends thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery and then gets pregnant the next month! lol, We are ALL so excited and can not wait to meet Tiana!! She loves to sleep during the day and is very active at night, we must change that by the time she gets here!! I had my last day of work on Friday, that is if my leave gets approved, Jalena is going to stay in school Part time starting Monday, and I am looking forward to being a SAHM! That is for the next 5 months, then its back to work :(
I am going to promise myself to update at least 3 times a week, hey that will be my new years resolution! Got it!
Jalena had her surgery yesterday and was sooo good!! Surgery started at 8:30, by 9am the DR came out to tell us all went well. By 9:05, the nurse came to get us and said Jalena had just woken up..then by 9:30 we were out of there!! She slept a little on the way home, by the time we got home she was her normal self..you couldn't even tell she had surgery!! :) I am so proud of her!!!
Hi!! Yes, WE are alive! Sorry I have not posted in so long, things have been really busy here. After my surgery I had a hard time the first week...which I am glad to say that I am very happy that I had the surgery done. I have lost 24 pounds!! Still working on loosing more, but so far so good!! Work has been super busy lately, I used to check blogger about 5-7x's a day and now I am down to about 3x's per week!!!! lol..I've been taking on alot of other projects, in addition to my work, so thats what keeping me busy!! We also recently moved and have not had Internet in 2 weeks, which is driving me crazy!! lol...The new house is awesome..much bigger, alot more room for Jalena to run around. She is doing great, talking so much, even though she doesn't always listen, but I think we are starting "Terrible 2's" early! Tomorrow is her surgery for her tubes in her ears. She had a hearing test today and passed. I am excited for the surgery because it will be some relief for her. 10 ear infections in 10 months is just too much!!! Will update when I can....sorry for being a stranger!!!
I had my surgery on Monday, the actaul surgery wasn't bad at all but the recovery has been HELL!!I am so misrable,emotional,uncomfortable,upset,angry at myself...shall I continue? I am so uncomfortable and swollen...they say it takes about 3 weeks for the swelling to go away.
I regret having the surgery and find it so sad how obsessed some women these days are with their bodies,that they would go to this extent. I do include myself in those "some women" but I was never really obsessed,I guess I just saw this as an easy way out.We are all beautiful, no matter big or small,overweight or skinny!
I have went back and forth about posting this, since I try to just use my blog to write only about my princess. But I thought it would be good for me to write it here. Tomorrow is the big day, the day that will change my life. I am having Smartlipo. (Click on the link to view the dr site and before/after pics, I will post an explanation of the procedure below!) I have been overweight my whole life, and have lost weight only to gain it right back again. When I was pregnant I gained 42 pounds, and then gave myself 9 months after having her to loose it. Well, I lost 50 pounds within her first year, only to gain 25 back in the past 8 months, how...I don't know! So I feel this procedure will help me, and give me the jumpstart that I need.
So for my last meal tonight, my last meal eating whatever the hell I wanted to, I got food to go from the Cheesecake factory,I even had a piece of cheesecake! It was too good!! Tomorrow I will begin my journey on loosing weight, eating right, and improving my health. I can not wait!
I have to be there at 10:30 and surgery will begin at 11:30, and should last 3 and a half hours! I will update tomorrow, and post before and after pics when I feel comfortable.
Here is an explanation of the surgery taken right from the Dr's website!
SA Bodysculpture uses a modified combination treatment solution. This is an advanced technique of permanently removing excess fat deposits in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is called tumescent (which means to "swell") because the physician fills and swells the fatty areas to be removed with large volumes of special solution before the procedure. This solution completely numbs the area due to the effect of local anesthetic, therefore general anesthesia or heavy intravenous sedation is not required. At the same time, a substance called epinephrine constricts the blood vessels, reducing bleeding to negligible amounts. Fatty deposits are then removed using small straw-like tubes called cannulas connected to a large bulb syringe. It is called bodysculpture because the trained physician is able to artistically sculpt the body into a new shape using delicate instruments. Besides the obvious increased safety of the procedure being performed totally under local anesthesia there are other significant benefits. You can cooperate with the physician by changing position so the areas can be more easily seen and multiple areas can be treated during the same session. Plus the finer instruments that are used in the tumescent bodysculpture technique allow the physician to target specific areas with accuracy and control never before possible.
So there is someone in the blog world who I'm sure everyone knows! MckMama! Well I really look up to her, admire her parenting skills, and her strong faith. Her Best friend MamaBear has been so sweet to coordinate all kinds of help for MckMama while Stellan is in the hospital.
So I came across MamaBears blog, and decided to follow her on her weekly blog carnival....
