Oh my gosh, my GALLY!!!

Well.... the last few days have been a whirl wind of sorts! It all began with having my gallbladder taken out on Thursday. This was not an emergency surgery, it was planned as of last Friday, I was expecting this. The surgery itself was not too bad, just a lot of soreness. The hardest part is not being able to pick up Ava. I will not miss this tiny little organ one bit. It is amazing how much pain that little thing can cause.

My parents were so helpful and kept Ava last night, and brought her back this evening. ( over 24 hours without my baby!)Thanks mom and dad! I am sure Grandma and Pop's arms didn't have to be twisted to much. They never mind time with their grandkids! Needless to say Ava had a blast, and came home with lots of new goodies...some shoes, a new chair and these.................
Painted toenails! Aren't they precious? Ava keeps looking at them saying "pretty." What can I say she is a woman after her mother's own heart, she loves the look of freshly painted toes. I guess I will have a pedicure partner in a few years.

I have to say it is not easy for me to sit around and do NOTHING! David has done such a great job of taking care of me and matters of the house. Yesterday I was running a slight fever and he was very persistent about taking my temperature every, what seemed like 5 minutes. He even called the "nurse on call" for me as a concerned husband. Luckily there was nothing to worry about and a slight fever is somewhat normal. Thanks babe for taking such good care of me!

This is proof that David has been cleaning up the house ..................
I looked at the fridge this morning, and noticed that Ava's magnets were all nicely lined up and paired together! Ava is smart but not this smart, David did this! How cute!

This is what it typically looks like when I pick them up! Hey it works!

Needless to say, I am glad my surgery is done and over with, and I am praying this will take care of my symptoms!

Here are a few more pics of what Ava has been up to since the last time I posted! ( a month ago!)
