We've had a crazy week! Last weekend I took a mommy vacation and headed down to my longtime friend's bachelorette party. It was a blast! I am super excited for her wedding. I suppose it has taken me all week to recover. I thought I'd be good at staying awake until almost 4 am. It turns out that even though I don't get much sleep normally, I still need to go to bed early. I didn't get any photos of the action, but check out these sugar daddies... Rawr!
Yesterday we started the day with a trip to the ER. My dad had back surgery about 2 weeks ago and it was giving him a lot of trouble. He ended up in emergency surgery where they removed two large bone fragments that were irritating the nerves in his spine. (I don't know how big "large" is when speaking in terms of bone fragments, but this is something that can happen with the kind of surgery he had and we knew this before he had the surgery.) The doctor was confident that he removed any bone that could possibly turn into floaters, so hopefully he will be on track to heal up successfully this time. His nerve is still irritated, so they are keeping him in the hospital until they figure out how to treat it. I was so thankful for my Ergo carrier because a hospital is definitely not a baby's favorite place to be! Cameron was even able to get in a couple of naps throughout the day.
I am sure my dad wouldn't appreciate any hospital photos of him on the blog (no, I didn't even take one) so this will have to do. This was a few minutes before nap number one and I would say it looks like I should've napped, too! The super nice staff in the emergency room turned off the lights in the waiting room so the baby could sleep. I guess I assumed that emergency rooms were always packed and busy, but we were the only ones in that part for the whole hour Cameron napped! I think we were finally able to head for home around 6:00. After putting in a 10 hour day at the hospital we were very happy to be home!
We have all kinds of awesome plans coming up in May so I expect that I will either have a lot to blog about (I'm sure) or I will be so exhausted that I will forget to update (also sure). My goal is more mini-posts throughout the week so I don't have to try remember everything on Wednesday (Friday).
