I Promise, This is the Last Post of Woe…

April 19th, 2007

Ok, Kenny’s morph into the human jello trick got to me more than I let on.   Actually, he did it again yesterday (at the post office) and then (at the mall) and finally (trying to get back into the car at the mall), and my fragile abdominal stiches went *POP* and suddenly Mommy has more woes on her mind than just a toddler tantrum.

I awoke this morning to an alarming and horribly painful bulge just below my stiched up navel, and, after typing my symptoms in at WebMD, called my surgeon, certain that I had popped a hernia.   He saw me right away (he’s a saint) and immediately reassured me that it was “only” a ripped abdominal muscle at the point of the incision.   And “all” I have to do is not pick Kenny up for another week (or lift anything heavier than a milk jug) or drive anywhere for a few days.


Waaaaaaaaah.   One step forward, two steps back.   My little abs are still protruding (it looks like someone slipped a golf ball under my belly button), and Kenny is like, “Hold you, Mama!” and I’m thinking, seven days… no plopping Kenny into the car seat for an excursion, much less lifting him into his highchair, or bathing him, or… swopping him up in a wild high bear hug??  

So enough of these wails of defeat.   Things have to be going uphill now.   I declare that our family is officially on the mend.   Kenny, at least, is back to normal:

    Oh my gosh, it certainly is one thing after another for you, isn’t it!?

    At least you seem to have a sense of humor about it… but my thoughts are still with you! 🙂
