Having all 4 kiddos

Well everyone and I say everyone because I absolutely love my stats feedback! Thank you everyone for reading my blogs! I hope it helps some of you! Now lately we have had all four kids for our extended vacation. I must say it has been very rough since my surgery but also very rewarding. We went to see a dolphin show! I cried (mainly from the hormone pill) because I was so happy! Our 5 year old absolutely loved it and now wants to be a dolphin trainer! Which of course I told her she can be anything that she wants to be. She is so excited. She adored watching the dolphins do flips and play around. I don’t know if it was me or her that had more fun though. That was all we talked about for 3 days straight was how awesome it was, and that we can’t wait to go back.

Well as you know I recently had a full hysterectomy at the age of 23. Now it was mandatory from all the complications I was having. I don’t like it because right now it hurts really bad, but once I heal I am so excited to live a pain free life again. The kids have been such a great help. Makayla has helped a lot with laundry cleaning, and helping mommy with the kids. Shes my little helper, even though I give her money every time she does something for me! She deserves it though, because she honestly is such a great girl when she’s here. Oh good news everyone! We will officially be getting the girls more now and I haven’t been happier. I already have so much planned from now until October. We may have a minor set back, but it will be taken care of hopefully in a respectful manner.

My husband will be going back to work here in a couple weeks which means the kiddos and I will be spending a lot of time together. I’m so happy for that, because I love the quality time we spend together. We  do a lot of fun things together because well we can. The kids are great and we have a blast. Mainly because I am still a kid at heart and they love that about me. I’m not just a mom, I’m a best friend too. You have to be a best friend to your children right now because they need that. They need a mentor to show them how to do things but a friend who is always there for them when they need it. I will always be there for my kids, no matter what. They are my everything, ALLLLL of them. Kids really just want your time and affection at these ages.

Its time for this Mama to get up and get some cleaning done! Its been really hard since my surgery, so I have fallen behind on my housework and I am going insane looking at it. So is my husband as well. It’s time to just suck it up and get it done. Have a good night everyone!

 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.        John 14:27

Endometriosis

Well everyone I’m going to tell you about my health condition. I have something called endometriosis that starts off inside a woman’s reproductive system, but can spread outside of it. Which mine has done. I have my endometriosis all over my body. It is on my tubes to my kidneys, bladder, liver, and even my lungs. They are doing a full hysterectomy at 23 on Tuesday! A FULL ONE! I’m so nervous. I can only imagine the pain I am going to be in and it scares me. I won’t lie when I say I suffer from anxiety and this surgery has my anxiety on the fritz!

Hopefully, and I’m sure, everything will be okay! My father and my husband will be there for me. My dad has never missed a surgery of mine, and I was nervous he would miss this one to help mom with the kids. This is a very painful thing to have. I have lived my life in pure pain for about 3 years now, and it has been miserable. I was told for the first year I was faking my pain, that I only wanted the pain medication, when that was not the case! I finally decided to see a different doctor! She decided to do a laparoscopy where they found me covered in endometriosis. They do not know what causes it, some say its hereditary to be honest. I believe that’s how I got mine.

I was on a vitamin supplement for a very long time, and that actually helped me a lot with my pain. I was no longer suffering every day, but then I got pregnant. I had to stop taking all of my vitamins which caused my endometriosis to spread. Most people say that with the progesterone in your body with being pregnant that it won’t spread, but that was not the case for me. Mine actually got worse, and more painful. My doctor told me that I could get a shot every week to shut down my ovaries or have the full hysterectomy. Why would I want to waste money every week when I can fix he problem in a day? So we decided right then we wanted the hysterectomy. I was scared because I am only 23 years old and will be going through menopause. That is what scares me the most.

If you suffer from this disease or know some who does, don’t be afraid to shoot them my way. I can always be a support system and an advice giver. I have tried everything but nothing worked for me, and his is my last option. I’ve tried to avoid it for a long time, but its not getting any better its getting worse.
