1. I am terrified of Bigfoot and am too scared to go camping because of it!

2. My favorite food is Honey Seared Chicken from Pei Wei.

3. I used to want to be a tornado chaser when I grew up. (now that I live in Texas where we have dozens of tornado warnings in our county every summer and spring, I think they are the scariest things on earth. Especially at night when you can't see where they're coming from!)

4. I HATE putting away laundry and putting away dishes. I'm fine with loading them....but as for unloading- I'd rather change a poopy diaper!

5. I have broken two wedding rings, but the third one has lasted over a year! (in my defense, they were total random accidents and I didn't do it on purpose. Hope it's not a bad omen...)

6. Some day I'd like to go back to school and finish my nursing degree and work in Labor and Delivery at a hospital!!!

7. I'm terrified of city driving!!! (I've lived here for a year and still haven't driven on the freeway! Then again, Texas drivers are worthy of being terrified of! These people are maniacs!)

Now I'm supposed to tag 7 people.....I don't have 7 people to tag.....oh well! :)

We went to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago to pick out our pumpkin for Halloween. Whitney thought she was in some sort of magical pumpkin land and Aaron was just having a grand old time climbing all over the pumpkin pile. Just look at that face! "Is this for real? You mean, I get to climb all over those and you won't get mad!?!" Life is so much more exciting when you get to live through their eyes.

Wow, has it already been a week!?! Sorry! The surgery went well. The nurses couldn't get my I.V. right for some reason. It took three tries to find a vein! The first time the lady completely missed my vein and sent the needle straight through my flesh. Now the whole top of my hand is a nasty bluish greenish purplish color. The second one lasted through my surgery, but turns out it wasn't flowing so I came out of surgery very dehydrated and went into some kind of shock. They gave me a shot of something to make me stop shaking and it calmed me right down, whatever it was. So, they put in a new I.V. and put three liters into me! Anyway, they didn't find any active endometriosis, but there was some scar tissue that did some damage. They were able to remove it and hopefully that fixes the pain. As for the lump that started this whole mess, they tried to have a look at it while they were in there and it's on the outside of the abdominal wall, so that will take another surgery later on.
Recovery wasn't too bad. I have 2 incisions, one right below my navel and the other one is lower at the bikini line. (whoever named it the bikini line anyway?). I have some stitches...and a little bruising from where the instruments were prodding around, but really it's not too bad at all. I spent the first few days sleeping because of the pain killers and by day 4 I was pretty much back to normal. Michael took such good care of me, he really stepped up to the plate and I know I couldn't have made it without tearing something back open without him! (awwwww, tender).
I'm just soooooo glad that I opted for the laparoscopy first instead of the hormone therapy which would have been 6 months of living heck for nothing!!! I attribute that to prayer because I knew what I needed to do the second after I said "amen". Thank heaven for prayer. :)
