Wow. Have I been a HUGE blogging slacker or what?!?! I hope you all can forgive me... life has finally been good for us here! All except for my short stint in the ER, but we'll get to that in a minute. I've just been busy enjoying having Gabby here all day since she was on Christmas break & we were just being "normal" (okay, you can stop snickering now;0)
The girls had a great time this year during the entire "Christam", as Vaeh would say, season. It's been really fun seeing the girls interact with each other, as well as Miss V really getting the whole idea this year. That & the fact that we don't have to deal with this anymore...
I really don't miss that orange-tinged plastic tube running across her face.
The girls were really cute opening their presents! Gabby wasn't shy at all... she tore right into them. Vaeh on the other hand, savored every tear of the paper! Jon had to tell her several times to keep going. Gabby had all of her presents opened & then even helped Vaeh with hers!
We had a wonderful few days together as a family since Jon was home half the day on Christmas Eve & didn't have to return to work until Sunday night. The same went for New Year's eve! Now the day after Christmas wasn't so much fun. I'm vowing right now that next year we will not go near a doctor's office or hospital from the end of October until at least February!! I woke up around 5:30AM on Saturday with pain all across my upper stomach & across my back about shoulder blade height. So, after about 3 hours, I decided I needed to go to the ER. If you guessed 'gallbladder' you are absolutely correct!! Ding, ding, ding!!! Thankfully the attack ended & they gave me some nice painkillers, but... it needs to come out:0( So, again I have to have surgery. Not sure when yet as I haven't seen the surgeon, but I'm hoping its sooner rather than later. It really isn't any fun feeling lousy every time you eat:0/
So, other than my lovely gallbladder, everyone here is doing well. We're all looking forward to a brand new year & things to keep going better & better for our family! Hope everyone else is have a great start to 2010!
