~ 2 down 1 to go~



Hi friends~

Do you see what I see? A sweet little hummingbird...they move so fast I've had a hard time trying to get a good picture. But, for the last few weeks they've been very active....trying out their feeder and dancing along the back garden. We have enjoyed watching them.




Yesterday I had procedure #2. Mister insisted on taking pictures....this is before the procedure but after the relaxing meds were put in my IV.....do you know why they don't let you wear make-up? I'm going to ask them next time...lol. Of course Benjamin was with me, too.

Look, he even took a picture of the sign. He is a good blogger husband. :)

This is the after picture ( going home, Yeah! ).....all the nurses & doctors there are so nice.

I was pretty alert after this procedure and even remember the drive home...I drove...j/k. Last time everything was a blur. I don't like not remembering things so I liked it better this time. Except, I do remember when they put the cold stuff all over my back and then I felt 3 piercing shots in my neck & back to numb me and I recall saying. I felt that! { But it didn't hurt...I guess I just felt the pressure. } After that I woke up in recovery, before they woke me up.
I wanted Mister & water.....I got both. :)

I feel pretty good today....injection sites hurt but it's nothing I can't handle. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Me? Well, I'm enjoying my first cup of vanilla flavored coffee in 48 hours.

I am a happy girl.

Hugs~ J

No make up in case you have complications so they can tell your actual coloring. Also so if you have complications you don't get make up all over there equipment or linens that is hard to get off. Funny true story, my old boss went tanning the morning of her hysterectomy. While she was on the operating table she kept turning more and more red and they thought she was having a reaction to the anesthesia! Afterwards they found out she had been tanning and fell asleep under the tanning bed. Not a bright thing to do. She caused a ton of undo worry and alarm in the OR and to her family at this time bz the surgeon sent a nurse out to the family to find out if she had forgotten to tell them any allergies she had! I know they don't like nail polish either so they can tell your capillary refill time, etc. I'm sooooo very glad it went well and that you're feeling good this time. Take it easy! Oh, the EHM house is HUGE and stands out like a sore, ugh, beautiful thumb!

Oh, Dear Jessica! You poor little thing...I'm so sorry you've having to go through all of this but hopes the procedure will really help you! Glad you seemed to feel better afterwards. Makeup or not, you're a beauty and what a sweet bear to help you along!
Now you must take care of your tiny self and let the family wait on you hand and foot! :) Really, I mean it.
I read your fireman's prayer and it was precious! God bless your Mister and his coworkers!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
