Since we last spoke

A few things since we last spoke...

1. Tiny Tank is a ball of cuteness

2. I have volunteered to make cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. I'm using PW's recipe. 

3. Yesterday, one of my surgery battle wounds came open. I'll spare you the picture. 

4. The upside, I lasted a full day at work! Six days after surgery and I'm back at work. 

5. According to The Chew's Turkey Timeline, today you should make cranberry sauce, pie dough, stock, dips and appetizers. 

Ok, I guess that covers everything.

Insta-lately is when I pretend to have an Instagram account. Here are some of the pictures you'd see on my Instagram account.

Tiny Tank loves Pioneer Woman too.

A tasty meal before surgery.

My chicken coop.

Maggie wanted me to shut the blinds.

OU basketball is back!

I made my first Apple Pie. I still have some work to do. 

See, no need to have an Instagram account.

That one time doctors thought I was constipated

This summer I started having stomach pains. The pain wasn't constant. However, every so often I'd have a painful stomach episodes. The symptoms were always the same; nausea, sharp stomach pain, paleness, sweating, and vomiting. 

I consulted three different doctors about these stomach episodes. Each doctor diagnosed it with constipation. Not the sexiest diagnosis but I ready to feel better. 

Fast forward to October...I was still having these stomach episodes. One evening it was so painful Sister #2 had to take me to the ER. It was at the ER that we discovered the cause of my pain; ruptured ovarian cyst. Each time I had a stomach episodes it was the cyst rupturing.

Yesterday, I had surgery to remove my beloved cyst. I'm happy to be on the road to recovery! Praise Jesus, the cyst is gone and I can poop. 

I'd like to give a shoutout to my awesome family. Thank you for dropping everything to care for me. You're the best!

Thank you to Canada Travis for caring for me after surgery; and for taking a pre-surgery selfie. I know you hate selfies.

So yeah...this has been my world for a few months.
