Surgery day

As bad as I am about updating it's likely no one will notice, but I may not be able to be post for a week or so. Surgery is set for this morning on my rt. hand. If I update for a bit depends on a.) how this doctor bandages and b.) how frustrated I get with typing one handed. Too bad the dogs can't really type my blog for me. Or one of my characters. I shall, perhaps, have to be satisfied with posting witty pictures stolen from someone else.

I've not been nervous, but I'm up early and have a distinct queasiness and a headache. Of course this could be from not having any liquids since about 9pm last night. Ugh! I chose the kitty picture (*snicker*) because I've been a grump the last few days and his face is just a perfect reflection of my mood.
I'm not the only one. Z and I are having a grumpfest. He's crabby, I'm crabby, so there! Munchkin has allergies. We were pretty sure of this since everytime the SO is runny-eyed and snuffling, so is Z. He's mouth breathing a lot lately which means he's gulping air and getting a gassy upset tummy. Cranky, fussy, no sleep through the night Z means a grumpy mom. The doctor started him on infant zyrtec but it doesn't help his congestion. You can't treat congestion in children under 6 because of the dangers of decongestants, evidently.
I do have a perverse sense of pleasure in knowing that for the next week or so since I can't technically "lift" the baby, K is going to have to take over. Sweet sleep, you shall finally be mine.

I know what you mean; I'm taking perverse pleasure in the fact I've not had to cook or clean in the last week, due to the new job!

Hugs, sweetie...when this is all over, you'll be happier! And Z won't even remember 'when Mommy couldn't pick me up'.

I was thinking about you yesterday, hoping everything went well. I hope it isn't too hard to get around with the baby now that you've had your surgery. Let me know if you need anything, even if it's just a hug.

up and around at the moment. Of course the sheer entertainment value of watching K cook may be worth the pain.

Sorry to hear about the allegies.
How did the surgery go?
