THE DAY I LOST MY ARM AND MISC….

SO DOES ALL CAPS DRIVE ANYBODY ELSE CRAZY?IT TAKES SOOOOO LONG TO TYPE SO THIS IS EASIEST.

THE DRIVE FROM THE HOSPITAL TO HOME TOOK SO LONG.NORMALLY WHAT FEELS LIKE A NICE DRIVE,TURNED INTO A DRIVE OF TORTURE.I WAS YELLING AT THE CITY FOR NOT FIXING THE POT HOLES.EVERY BUMP MADE ME CRY.SO WHEN WE FINALLY MADE IT HOME IS IT ANY WONDER WHY I PASSED OUT INTO A DEEP SLEEP.UPON AWAKENING SOMETHING DIDN’T FEEL RIGHT.OH CRAP WERE IS MY ARM?PICTURE ME FLIPPING OUT BECAUSE THATS WHAT HAPPENED.FINALLY I DID SOMETHING THAT BROUGHT MY ARM BACK TO WHERE IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE.IT WAS BEHIND MY BACK AND I COULDN’T FEEL IT.LET ME JUST TELL YOU THAT IT IS REALLY WEIRD.SOMETHING ELSE THATS WEIRD CLOSING YOUR EYES AND HAVING YOUR THERAPIST TAKE A SHARP PIN TO YOUR BODY,AND YOU CAN’T FEEL IT.OH WELL ADJUSTMENTS RIGHT?LOL

FROM THE START OF EVERYTHING WE SAID WE WOULD BE HONEST WITH THE KIDS.OF COURSE TRISTIN UNDERSTANDS MORE.WE JUST SAID MOMMY WAS SICK AND HAD TO HAVE AN OPERATION AND IS NOW TRYING TO GET BETTER.I WAS HOME A FEW DAYS WHENTRISTIN ASKED ME.MOMMY DO YOUR STAPLES HURT.YES BABY THEY HURT.WILL I HAVE TO GET THEM WHEN I GROW UP?I REALLY HOPE NOT.AND THAT WAS IT.

BRAIDI AND J PICKED ME UP AFTER THERAPY.HIS LITTLE VOICE PIPED UP FROM THE BACKSEAT.ARE YOU ALL BETTER NOW MOMMY?NOT YET HONEY WE STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO.OH MAN….YEP MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY…

WHEN WE WERE LEAVING THE HOSPITAL THE NURSE OFFERED SOME GREAT ADVICE.LET THE KIDS HELP YOU.IF YOU NEED WATER LET THEM GET IT.NEED HELP WITH YOUR SHOES LET THEM HELP YOU.THE IMPORTANT THING RIGHT NOW IS LETTING THEM FEEL INCLUDED.SO THATS WHAT WE DO.WHEN I NEED SOMETHING SMALL THEY HELP.OF COURSE I HAVE TO THINK OF TWO THINGS SO ITS FAIR.LOL

THROUGH IT ALL THEY AMAZE ME.FOR A 3 AND 5 YEAR OLD THEY ARE TAKING IT IN STRIDE.J AND I HAVE BUILT A PRETTY STONG LITTLE FAMILY.ITS AMAZING HOW MUCH YOU GROW UP OVER THE YEARS.I NEW ONE DAY I WOULD HAVE KIS,I JUST DIDN’T KNOW HOW BLESSED I WOULD BE WITH THE LITTLE BOYS I ENDED UP WITH.LIKE I SAID THE DAY I OPENED MY EYES FROM SURGERY.THANKYOU GOD…….
