Pain Block Wearing Off…

Yesterday, I became acutely aware that the pain block Dr. Brukner injected into my hip is wearing off.  The la-la feeling I had in my hip, low back, pelvis area is now fading (BUMMER). Replacing it is in ache in my low back and some stiffness in my hip.  The incision pain is also becoming a little more intense (especially when Leif or Sochi sit, kick, or jump on it).

Leif spent Tuesday night at Grandma and Papa’s again and I slept well, other than my anxious mama dreams about not being able to feel/hear Leif next to me in the night. I got to lounge on the couch all morning and then get my hair done by my lovely friend and hair dresser, Carina (seriously, if you live in Tacoma–she’s your gal).

Yep. Mindy Project, My pup, tea, and a good book.

Carina’s handy work and my pretty new earrings made by a local Tacoma gal.

Leif spent the day with Papa John, Auntie Megan, and Lily at the zoo before coming home to spend the night with us.  Sort of exhausting but so so sweet to have my little within reach at night.

He's so great!  Love my dad!

Challenges/Updates:

Low back pain.  As mentioned, this is not so great.  I decided to take an oxycodene to help me sleep.  It took the edge off.  I hope to not need it tonight.

Yeast Infection.  Symptoms continue to get better with the garlic treatment and Yeast Arrest.  I think I’m on almost in the clear!  Going to continue the treatment for a few more days.  Maybe keep up with the garlic for a full week.

Awesomeness:

People have been bringing us all sorts of yummy meals and snacks!  I love getting to try other people’s cooking!

Yesterday morning and afternoon were so relaxing!

In between the toddler chaos– I get the world’s greatest snuggles.

This was after dog food was dumped all over the kitchen, crumbs spread on couch, shoe basket emptied, and a wrestling match in which I obviously won.
