So my surgery was Wednesday and I have been in recovery mode since.  I won't go into detail on what all the doc did.  To summarize, he basically put two holes in for the camera and one for tools, did some things and then stitched me up.   The first 36 hours I was flat on my back.  For those who have had laproscopy done before, you may be familiar with shoulder pain afterwards.  Flat on the back is the best way to deal with it.  Now that the shoulder pain is gone, I have been sentenced to the couch.  The sentencing is for my I don't tear something and then they have to go back in to fix that (according to my protective hubby). So today I have painted my nails, played some Kingdom Chronicles on my iPad, watch some NCIS marathon, gotten text updates on the boys' football game, and am currently introducing Ashley to Ocean's Eleven. We have been super blessed by meals of lasagna and meatloaf.  And my parents have been a huge help in playing taxi for my kids.  It has been awhile since I've had a stay at home vacation, so I plan to enjoy it while it lasts.

And the answer is.....

....we always visit Arby's after I have had a hospital visit.  It started with the birth of my first born.  I had horrendous acid reflux and heartburn and didn't really enjoy food the last trimester.  As we headed home with Sara it was near lunchtime.  Joe asked me what I wanted to eat, we happened to be drivin past an Arby's and it sounded good to me.  And, thus, started a tradition as there just happened to be an Arby's near the hospital where I gave birth to the last three kids.  About 5 years ago I had a benign tumor removed and Joe ran me through Arby's on the way home.  So it has happened 5 times in the last 13 years.

So, tomorrow, as you have probably guessed, I am making another hospital visit.  Evidently that surgery 5 years ago left some scar tissue.  It has really started to bug me so them good doc is going to  go back in and do whatever they do to get rid of it...hopefully without causing more scarring; not really sure how that all works which, as they say, is why my doc gets the big bucks.  And now it is off to bed I go as I get one last refreshing drink of food OR drink after midnight....sigh.

Arby's here we come...

So here is a little blog trivia for your Monday afternoon.   After a certain something happens in my life, my hubby runs me through the Arby's drive thru for a beef 'n cheddar hold the Arby's sauce.  A hint would be that this has happened 5 times in the last 13 years.  It is going to happen again this week. Any guesses?
