“One lung wonder”

What a busy but fun weekend! It started off with a good ole Fitbit challenge on Friday…that lead to a torturous day of competition between me, my husband and family!! Haha!

In fact, I was in Iowa City so while I was in the car 4 hours out of the day, without Tim there, I got lost due to this being a different doctor so needless to say I was able to get some extra steps inπŸ˜‰

My appointment went fine…all the fun filled labs, ekg and testing for the presurgery physical. A lot of time was also spent discussing my fm and the risks involved with what is to come. It was confirmed that even though this has to do with all of the female issues I’ve been dealing with, this will be a more invasive surgery, requiring me to be completely under with a breathing tube etc., therefore, I was strongly encouraged to continue with my nebulizer all the way up to the morning of surgery. They want to “make sure and keep the airways open!” Geesh!! Talk about making it sound all scary and serious!!

I won’t find out exactly what time my surgery is until the day before and will be praying all goes well so that I can be home that same night…because I think you all know how well I do in hospitals!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

But anyway, back to the Fitbit challenge…and due to HIPAA privacy acts…I won’t share with you the names or details but ‘cough cough’ I won with almost 30,000 steps!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ Hence the title of my blog after being referred to as that! Haha! And yes, sadly little things like this totally make my day…not just winning but the fun and silliness that goes along with it!

Then Saturday, Tim and I were finally able to get out for a date night, something we haven’t done in a couple of months. We just did dinner but it was nice to have some quiet time although we really didn’t know what to do with ourselves once we were away! Plus, we were both a little sore from our challenge the day beforeπŸ€“

This morning my parents came to church with us and as long as my mom and I didn’t look at each other, then I didn’t cry! Right away the pastor referenced to having a loved one in a nursing home, which my grandma is not in yet, but it is extremely difficult for my dad to see his mom, for us to see our grandma deteriorating so quickly from the cancer. 

After church was over the pastor and other members did a prayer for my upcoming surgery which is always very comforting, just the support from our church family is absolutely amazing…except for the fact that my mom exposed me and Tim….pointing out the more we joke with each other, are the times when more prayers are truly needed for us…she is absolutely right thoughπŸ˜‰

But, I would also like to point out, when Tim and I first started our small group almost two years ago, we couldn’t go one sentence without “harsh joking,” our coping skills for getting us through all of the struggles we have had to face but now, well, while we still give each other a hard time on occasion, we have both come a long way…but still something for us to improve on! Haha! 

After church my parents took us out to lunch and anyone looking for some delicious food and great service with a friendly atmosphere…The East Bremer Diner in Waverly is the place to go😍 πŸ˜‰ It was nice to sit and catch up on things with my parents as their time has been consumed by helping with my grandma who is battling leukemia. The kids even sat well and colored so that we actually were able to carry on a conversation!

Once our tummies were full we had to rush back home to get Leah ready for dance pictures. Have I mentioned how awesome of a big sister Skyler is?!😍   

I can’t do hair so I just harassed them with pictures…

So that was our weekend before we start our busy week of preparing for me to possibly be down a few weeks. 

Truly blessed to have all of the support that we do and it definitely puts our minds at ease knowing that so many continue to pray for us and that help is available to us in any form that we might need! 

And you know who you are…thank you for the McDonalds pieces…it made me smile!!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜„ 

Hope everyone has a great week!
