surgery day....already.

Well tomorrow is the day. Feeling a little bit of mixed emotions. Finally it is here, but shoot. I want to get it over with but don't want to deal with it.
Our thanksgiving was good. My parents were out of town so my sister Heather and I got our families together to celebrate. Jon's parents also joined us for the meal. Even though there were 12 of us, it seemed small compared to our normal crowd. I cooked a turkey for the first time and it turned out to be pretty easy. I missed having my parents there even though I get to see them a lot because they are close to us. I got a small taste of what my out of town sisters miss out on not being here. (losers, you two should move home) Jon also got the nasty cold that has been going around our house. Hopefully it doesn't last as long for him as it has for me.
On Friday Jon and I took the kids and did some Christmas shopping. Since the basement is close to being done Jon got his Christmas present early and we bought the furniture and TV for the family room.
Sunday was my anniversary. Jon and I have been married for 7 years, amazing. I can't believe that we have been through all we have in the last 7 years. I am so lucky to be married to my best friend and can't imagine life without him. He does such a great job taking care of me and the kids. I love you babe.
Today the city inspector came to check out the basement. We were given the go ahead to use the 2 bedrooms and the family room. I have some of the kids stuff down here already but am really looking forward to now having the extra room to spread out. AWESOME!!! 2 years later we can finally use it!!! Jon has done an amazing job, with the help of lots of friends of course!
I am still coughing and developed a pain in my back around my rib cage that got worse over the weekend. Yesterday I went to the doctor since it was getting so bad I couldn't breathe without it hurting much the less cough....ouch. Thank goodness the chest x ray came back that it was not phenomena. The doc thinks I pulled a ligament or something. Ouch, whatever it is. He gave me some Tylenol with codeine but they don't seem to be helping a ton. I am really nervous for tomorrow. I would think that this would be easier the more "experience" you have but I am just as nervous as I was the first time I had surgery. I didn't really sleep much last night and have a feeling it will be the same tonight.
Olivia had her Christmas concert tonight. Those kids are so stinkin cute. I will upload pictures soon. I am sure I will have plenty of time sitting around over the next week. Off to try and sleep, hopefully I will be successful.

SO glad your surgery went well. I was telling Amy how freaked out I would be to have any sort of the surgeries you've been through. You're so brave! And I'm so sorry you had to do it again.
