Surgery, ear infection & moving!

A lot has happend around the Floyd house since I last posted and I don't really know where to begin. My head still seems to be spinning from everything.

First off, I had hernia surgery last week. At first I was like, it will be no big deal and I'll be right back to normal. YA RIGHT! I'm stilll hobbling around the house and pretty much instructed from my doctor to do nothing for 5 more weeks. Which includes not picking up the kids. Not sure how much longer that can last! I guess this surgery ended up being a bigger deal than I had planned on. I came out with ten incisions and a pain pump connected to me. When the doctor was in there he also had to repair one that was supposed to be fixed last August but that patch never worked. So he had two to fix. Anyway, I ended up having to stay in the hospital for a night. All to find out 3 days later that my pain pump wasn't even working. No wonder it hurt so bad. I had never hurt so bad in my life. I should have known something wasn't right. I'm doing better now and can actually walk by myself. Josh has been awesome through all this. He has been a great nurse even while having a very busy week at work, hiring two new football coaches to his staff. He's shown a lot of patience and I appreciate him so so much!

Yesterday, Gigi, Josh's Mom, had to pick up Parker and take him to the doctor. It turns out he has an earfection. Poor baby. I knew something wasn't right with him. He is normally the happiest baby ever and the past few days something just hasn't been right with him. He is also teething really bad right now and drooling everywhere! Pray for our sweet Parker.

Since our life was already stressful enough around here to make it even worse we are moving tomorrow!! Yes, moving. My Mom has been here the past 2 weeks waiting on me hand and foot and also packing up our house. Words can't express how much I appreciate my Mom, she's been great. I'll have to post some new pictures of our house when I can get to the camera. I love it and we are so excited. It's not very far at all from where we live, in fact it's just down the road.. It's a new subdivision and we are so excited to have more room around here and even go swimming in the neighborhood pool this summer. Peyton is also excited to have a play room. I am too so maybe we won't have as many toys hanging out in our living room.

Anyway, this past week, in the midst of all our stress, we have been truly blessed with our family and friends. They have helped so much!!! Everything from helping pack up the house, watching the boys, providing meals, the list really could go on and on. God has blessed us with the best family and friends anyone could ask for. Thank you all so much. And please keep praying for us, especially as we close on our house and move tomorrow.

Hey girl, gosh I hate to hear that you had to have surgery, but glad you are getting back to feeling better. I know we never really hung out or anything, but if you ever need help with the boys I would be happy to come over and play with them while you rest or take them to the park or bring them to our house or whatever! Bentley loves to have friends over to play! Get well soon! Congrats on your new house!
