So, surgery went wonderfully!  I was sent home after only 3 hours in recovery!  I was ecstatic.  I have a pretty bad infection now, but it's slowly, (very very very very slowly) starting to clear up and I'm healing pretty well.  I feel like myself again, I'm able to pick up my little girl, and things are looking up.

I got eat a hamburger for the first time in 2 years, I've had brats and ham sandwiches.  I can't believe how good food tastes.  LOL  I guess it doesn't seem like anything major, but when you haven't been able to have a simple ham sandwich in 2 years, you'll never understand how good that first one tastes!

Whole family woke up sick on Thursday, but it only lasted a few days.  We're still all fighting a runny nose but doing much better. 

We bought a pop-up camper 3 days after my surgery, so we're going to be working on cleaning that up and working on it.  It's awesome, very vintage, it's a 1971.  The material on the inside is all original and very with the time.  It's soo cool, I love it.  It was pretty cheap and just needs a LITTLE bit of work.  Tonight we are pulling the old furnace out and making plans for removing the stove as well.  We cannot wait for our first camping trip.

Now that the healing from the surgery is almost done hubby and I have finally been able to start the "trying to conceive" process.  I'm soo happy!  I can't wait!  I hope we don't get pregnant too fast, but I can't wait to be pregnant again and Makayla is soo happy to have a baby brother or sister.  We've pick out our girls name...it will be Allison Rose (although I'm not sure about the spelling of Allison yet, I'm thinking Alicesyn) and for a boy we are still discussing between a few names.  I hope it's a boy but I'd be happy with another girl!

My hubby's aunt and uncle are still not talking to us, but they are apparently coming over tonight to check out the camper and see Makayla.  They never even called to see how I was doing after surgery...oh well, not my family, screw them! 

I hope everything is well with everyone!
