I sent my sister my dentist/laughing gas selfie on Thursday and then she sent me her post-surgery selfie.
She found a new doctor that fit her right in for surgery and took care of the problem. She had a huge bulge in one of her discs that was causing a lot of nerve pain. She could barely walk and was in bed most of the day. He was able to remove it and she is already doing so much better. She has pain from the actual surgery and the swelling but all of the nerve pain is gone.
Such a huge blessing.
She even gets to go on little walks each day and so we went on one last night. She won’t be able to lift anything or get in a car for a while but the fact she is walking normally (just very slowly) is huge. I just want to give her doctor the biggest hug ever.
We also got to go on one today… I’m going to keep track of her progress:)
Time for some Monday Matters!
-Not sure how long this little man is going to be able to fit inside his dad’s t-shirts!
-Last night we also had a killer round of Monopoly and I lost miserably.
-Why is bread and butter the most delicious thing even though it is so simple? The race had these waiting for us within a few feet of the finish line. Such a good idea.
-Probably not the best ‘night before a race’ fuel but it sure tasted delicious.
-I stayed at Megan D’s parents’ house the night before the race and was pretty stoked when I found an Easter egg with money AND candy in it:)
-We made a ridiculous amount of salsa today.
Lots of tomatoes, white onions, green onions and cilantro topped with the below seasonings to taste. So fresh. So heavenly.
-Best eaten when put on a sweet potato with chicken and avocado.
-Life feels back to normal again and normal is my favorite.
-No run today. Just some time on the trampoline and I’ll hit up bootcamp tonight!
