Mommy Frankenstein

April 9th, 2007

Tomorrow I go under the knife.   Say goodbye to the gall bladder.   Funny, the doctor reassured me that there’s no issue to remove it, because it isn’t really necessary in the first place.   Like the apendix.   But God gave them to me, so surely they are not accidental!   It’s not like He came up with “extra parts” when He put me together, so He stuck an extra organ or two in there.   I must admit that I’m a bit skeptical about my doc’s cavalier attitude.

If nothing else, I guess I can add this as one more reason why not to wear a bikini this summer… between my c-section scar and my accordian-like folds of skin hiding my secret six-pack abs, why not add another little demure pink trophy?   Then again, once you have an adorable kid to take to the beach with you, no one looks at you again anyway.   I could wear a Wonder Woman costume to the shore, and still have people look right past me to gaze at my sweet little perfect boy.

Can you tell I’m nervous about going to the hospital tomorrow?   I think I’m more nervous about not seeing Kenny for twenthy-four hours.   He’s like a mandatory  appendage, (unlike the unnecessary gall bladder) and it’s not easy to just take him off for the day.   I spend nearly  all of my  waking hours holding him, pinning him down to change a diaper, chasing him, being chased by him, singing to him, dancing with him, washing hummos off his face or playing with him each day.   What on earth am I going to do without him for twenty four hours???   Worse yet, with his grandparents here, will he even notice that I’m gone?

I’m being silly, I know.   It must come with the territory…

    Hi Kristjana,
    I know how you feel. I have about 4 1/2 weeks to go until the new baby arrives and I don’t know what I am going to do without Ty at my side for 2 or 3 days. He is with me 24 hours a day give or take with naps and bedtime. But those nightly baths, kisses goodnight, getting him up in the morning, I will miss everything. And again, will he even miss that I am not here? Sure daddy will bring him to the hospital to see me and new baby brother, but I want him by my side. Must just come with the territory.

    Good luck with the surgery. And I promise that Kenny will miss you! Glad he’s feeling better, and hopefully you will be too in a few days.

    Glad to hear that your surgery went well. Mom called me…. so you got to come home to kiss that sweet face after all? 😉

    I guess we will find out one day why God gave us a gallbladder… !

    Miss you, love you

    […] nausea on his part post-op.   Whew.   It’s like deja vu from April 2007 when I had my own gallbladderout.   Except that this time  I was  the one twiddling my thumbs and waiting for the pager to go off […]
