Mommy's little helper
Sorry it's been a while since I posted. I didn't think this gallbladder surgery would knock me on my butt as much as it has! I am so glad to have it gone but man I've been in alot more pain than I expected. And here I thought I would be back to work by today and I am hardly able to get off the couch!
One positive from this whole experience (besides the fact that soon enough I will be able to eat fried food and gain 10 pounds) is what I have seen from my little one. I spend so much time taking care of her I never realized what a little helper she can be. I didn't expect her to understand what was wrong with mommy. When I got home from the hospital I showed her my "owies" and told her we had to be very gentle because mommy's tummy hurts. She very sweetly touched my owies and gave me the most gently hug ever. It was so precious. When I was resting on the couch she climbed up with me... pulled up my shirt and counted each "owie." I have been carrying around a pillow to act as a barrier when she gets too close and to help me get up. Bear wanted me to come to her room and grabbed my pillow and my hand and said "I help mommy, I walk you." When I don't have the pillow she runs over "Here go mommy!" And proudly brings it to me. Today she kissed my tummy gently at least ten times and asked if it was all better. I couldn't believe the tears that began flowing when she accidentally pressed on one of my incisions and I yelped. It is hard to believe that at such a young age she felt so much when she thought she hurt her mommy. I have just been so impressed with this other side of my sweet girl. She will make such a good big sister when that time comes! Sorry for the rambling. I wanted to let you all know I am alive and kicking and slowly recovering with the help of my little one's kisses and love (and of course my amazing husband and mother)!
