Living with Thoracic outlet and missing my blogger buddies and here is why

On November 10 I had surgery I had thoracic outlook and I was in jeopardy of forming blood clots in my arms and my pain was getting worse and both sides of my arms so on November 10 I went in for major surgery and they removed part of my right rib because it was blocking and I have pressure on my artery and vein so I was not getting blood flow the surgery was a success and everything is fine but I'm on my eight weeks of recovery it could be more recovery time there's a lot of pain due to my surgery and the nerve pain because nerves that I have not use the Year's are starting to work I know this is extreme but I want to share with all of you the reason I started this blog is to help moms with things and I kind of got away from it because I start having so much pain during the several years after having my son but I'm glad you guys are with me because I could share my story and help anybody  going through something like this .I'm so sorry have not been there to support you with your blogs lately and be there to share my stories with you as much as I want but I promise when I done with my full recovery I'll be back. unfortunately i have to have surgery on my left side soon. They just did my right side first. So On January 2 th I have another follow up appointment because we have to do my left side I'm not getting blood flow to that side of my arm either it's going to be a major surgery but it's worth it. Like I said if I don't do this I don't have a very good life are a good quality life and my son is very important to me he is the world to me so that's the main reason I'm doing this and my love ones. again thank you for understanding and I will be posting some moments we've had in the past weeks or so because I'm able to do a little bit more and feeling a little better everyday and thinking  positive. p.s Reading all your blogs make me smile and let me know everything will be ok. You will never know how much it means to me.. Lets me pass my time in bed resting in a more positive then feeling sad . Love you.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas

added Chicken flavor bouillon(start with a small amount then add as you go.)
boiled some egg noodles and added it to the veggies and broth. let cook for about an hour or till the veggies were soft.

Then all done. so easy. I was so happy this was my first time making soup like this. The best part Julian loved it and the broth taste so good. So anytime you want to make easy chicken soup . Here you go .. So proud of my self lol.

CRAZY TWO WEEKS AND ORGANIZING




These couple of weeks have been crazy with me trying to get rid of things in the house we do not need and re organizing Julian's room and my room.I try to organize a little each day I don't want to over do my self. I donated so many things to Goodwill. Another great place to donate is Savers. Savers even's give's you a discount of the store if you donate. I find play clothes for Julian there and baskets for the house to help organize. I also give a lot of clothes that Julian grow out of to some of my friends that have toddler boys. Friends are also happy to have extra clothes.I know I was when friends give me clothes for Julian. Julian is getting so much bigger and he needs more room. So I have a couple tips for toddlers room also.

Buy hanging vertical closet storage .. It saves you some room and it is great for toddler's smaller clothes and small shoes.

I love this I put one in my room and Julian's room. My mother told me about them and I'm so glad she did.


This Play mate I got from Home depot and Julian loves playing with his car's on it. It is also a good side. Its 3ft. x 5 ft

We still got a lot to do. If I do to much my body hurts But I'm able to deal with the pain better these days. I just need to keep positive.

WE EVEN TOOK THE BABY BOWLING. HE LOVED IT . NICE BACK PHOTO. HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GOOD WEEK. (our little break)





Hope everyone is having a great week ...

My little boy

Julian is growing up. My baby started preschool and he loves it. He got his first invite to his friends Birthday party. It so cute he is so happy to go. Everyday he shows me something new. He is potty trained now. Sometimes he misses his diapers but we are making progress. I still need to carry extra clothes. But I save so much money now without buying diapers. But I discovered a new great thing. Flush able wipes. lol ... Tip. you will need them when you potty train.

I also cut my hair shorter. I need to take some photos of with the short hair .. I have not yet. I was scared to do it. But with my still taking it day by day with my pain. Anything to make life easier. Also with a toddler more time to help and spend with him. I also been trying to dress up at least once a week to feel better. But my health is better then it was. just not all there yet. but on my way.

Thoracic outlet syndrome...oh the pain :I( update

These days I have been working improving my health. So I finally find out I have sign's of thoracic outlook syndrome. This is what it is Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when the blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) become compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers. So I'm still in physical therapy and take it day by day. Now I know I'm not crazy feeling this pain. The reason I want to share this again mama's if you are not feeling good and you know something is not right with you. Don't give up. If a doctor does not agree get second opinion. Each day is different it gets very hard with the pain and weakness but I just got to keep going .

I know I have not been blogging some much and I miss it. My blog is not were I want it to be because I been in so much pain but I really want to help more mom's out there or anyone. I always think to myself should I blog about what is going on with me or not. Be I decided I would because if I help one person that's all that matter's so hope to blog about mommy stuff still and things I go through to help anyone. I hope everyone is having a good.

These days have been so busy with work and school and of course the family. also I'm still in PT.The doctors are still trying to figure out way I have arm pain all the time. But you know what I'm keeping positive. I have had some blue days. But I need to not do that. I know I will get better soon.  I just wish I could work from home. lol.. Julian is doing great.. Can you believe he is going to start Preschool in July. wow. My little baby.

So I also came across this .. I was like wow this is cool to do.



SALAD IN A MASON JAR
my co works have been doing this.
Put your salad dressing on the bottom. So the salad does not get nasty and you salad get soft.
use hard veggies, pasta, cheese,proteins, nuts, seeds, fruits, then salad greens. Just stack everything together.
Put in refrigerator and when you ready pop the jar open.. sooooooo good. yum 

Hope everyone is having a great week. I promise when school is done for the summer. I will be blogging more. I need to manage my time better :O)

My Baby


So my son Julian will be 3 years old in April. Which makes me very very sad. Everyone keeps telling me he is a toddler now(a big boy) But to me he is not he is my baby. He is still a baby. My baby.lol. I know he is going to grow up but why now. So we have been potting training and I finally got pull ups. It was so hard. To me if he stops wearing a diaper then he might stop being a baby. I cried and cried when I was putting his last diaper on. But he doing so well with the potty training I'm so proud of him. You should see his face he gets so happy when he goes potty.

I guess this is a feeling I need to over come. I wonder if all moms find them self feeling like they are losing their babies at this age. But Julian does not seem to care. He is so happy to wear pull ups.

My do the times fly. But it save to say my baby is growing up...

and think I will be ok... :O)






Hope everyone had a good weekend
