It's been forever since I posted. So let me do the quick recap:
I had a baby.
I had a few more gallbladder attacks.
My mom left town.
I had gallbladder surgery.
It didn't go perfectly.
I was in the hospital for four days (it was supposed to be outpatient surgery).
Two of those days cost $32,000. I just got the bill.
Don't worry. While my insurance doesn't cover having babies, it DOES cover gallbladders, so I don't actually have to pay that. But still. $32,000 for two days in the hospital... and that DOESN'T count the actual surgery itself. Wow.
I stayed a few days with Murray's parents.
I came back home, but made Murray stay home with me.
I took lots of naps.
And NOW, a month after having my sweet adorable baby (exactly one month from today) I finally feel like I'm back to my normal self. I'm taking maternity leave, which is wonderful. Yesterday and today, I've felt like SUPER MOM. I've been taking care of two children, cooking proper balanced meals, cleaning the house, addressing and stamping birth announcements, going on family walks to promote a healthy lifestyle, and generally loving life (the sudden GOOD turn in weather may also be contributing to my overwhelming sense of joy right now).
And RIGHT NOW... right at this VERY MOMENT... BOTH my children are napping. So I actually have time to update the blog. Let's see if I can write about the birth story while they're still sleeping!
