Sweet Baby Mark
Yesterday I took Brittany to the hospital to see the baby. I'm so glad I finally got to hold him. He is such a sweetheart! The bad part is that I'm not suppose to drive if it causes me pain....and boy did it ever cause me lots of pain. I am not planning on driving again for quite some time. It took so much out of me and I slept the rest of the day. Some of you asked what kind of surgery I had. Well.....I had breast augmentation and lipo by my arm pits to get rid of some weird breast tissue. This is something I've been thinking about for many years, but was too afraid to actually do it. After nursing 5 babies my breasts shrunk down to a bra size "nearly A"! Yes there really is a nearly A bra size. Heck! 6th grade girls were bigger than me. I really am not a flashy cleavage showing kind of girl. I was tired of being embarrassed and I just wanted to look like a woman and to have clothes fit right. Let me just say that this surgery has been very hard and painful to recover from. I can't even take deep breaths, so I'm still not doing very well. I'm not really surprised because I recover slowly from everything. Just taking a shower right now wears me out, so I'm taking things really slow. Okay now that extreemly personal bit of info is out there....back to the baby. He's doing so good and has been off the ventilator for a couple of days. They've had to keep his hands wrapped up because he keeps trying to yank the tube out of his mouth that keeps his stomach empty. The NICU nurses take such good care of him and are so good to Brek and Brittany. Tonight Brek is at work, so Brittany's dad came to pick her up so they could spend some time with baby Mark. I just really love that sweet boy and can hardly wait till he gets to come home.
