Wedding Season Starts off with a Surgery!

I wish I could say wedding season started off with a bang, but this year it started off with a surgery...
Friday April 23rd at about 1am, I ended up in the ER with crazy back pain. After a bunch of tests including an ultrasound and an MRI, the doctors let me know that I would need to have my gall bladder removed. I had gall stones and inflammation. (Apparently your estrogen levels in pregnancy can make your gall bladder go crazy.. who knew?)

We went home from the ER Friday afternoon planning to schedule the surgery at a later date, so I would have plenty of time to recover between weddings. Things did not go as planned.

I started having a few complications Sunday morning, so the admitted me to the hospital, started IV antibiotics and scheduled a procedure for Monday and surgery for Tuesday. Thanks to many prayers, the blockage went away so I did not need a blockage removed, and had the surgery to remove my gall bladder Tuesday afternoon.

I came home Tuesday night (missing my 11 week old baby, 2 year old son, my husband and my very comfy bed), and shot a one year old's birthday session on Thursday. I knew if I could handle that, than the weekends weddings should be fine! Thankfully I felt pretty good Friday for our first wedding of the season, and after Saturday's wedding was pretty tired, but very glad to be healthy! Sunday I surprised my husband with a 30th birthday party and I am pretty sure that night I went to bed at 9pm...

At each wedding, I am always reminded of what an amazing husband I have, and how powerful God is. He really showed me how to rely on others, and revealed how loving, supportive, funny and talented my husband is. He also has been carrying everything over 10 pounds lately, so that is good too!

Anyway, I really appreciate all of your support, and I am excited to share in so many of your lives.

To prove I am in fact, still alive.... here is a shot from this week with our beautiful daughter Charlotte.
