Post-Op Update

I’m drained… I haven’t really slept well prior to Caleb’s surgery.  I was nervous and kept having dreams about everything that was going on.  Then I ended up being up a lot the night following surgery, giving Caleb his pain medication every few hours.  It was set up at 4 hours for Vicodin and then 6 hours for Toradol.  But they had to be taken at least an hour apart from each other.  Then he had nausea medication that was being given because he was still pretty nauseous.  Then you had to change his ice pack as well because he was suppose to be iced the entire time for the first 24 hours.  After the first 24 hours we have to give him a dose of aspirin once a day for blood clots.

Beginning

As a teenager, I battled with an eating disorder (anorexia).  I’ve spent the rest of my life in “recovery” for that same eating disorder.  My “recovery” has been strongly aided by the fact that as a young adult I developed hypoglycemia.  Now, I was never a large teenager.  In fact, I was probably always falling into the “underweight” category.  But at 15, I weighed in at about 50 lbs.  By the time I was 16 (when I went to my first doctor’s appointment for my pregnancy) I weighed in at 99 lbs.

Caleb’s ACL Repair

Today was the day… the day that we took Caleb into get his ACL repaired in his knee.  He seemed like he had it all together until we arrived at the hospital.  I was nervous and had a really hard time sleeping through the night.  So, I was not as calm as he was.  However, once we arrived I was a bit better with it all.  It was time to focus and take care of business.  Good trade I guess.

Trying Sushi

Way back when– I used to partake in the “101 Goals in 1001 Days”.  I have since stopped because I never make it through.  Well, honestly, I loose interest in even trying well before the 1001 days.  I thrive better on the smaller goals. But then again, based on the last three months— I fail at those as well!  But at least the re-set is quicker!  But way back then, one of my goals was always to expand my taste.

I’m Giving It

So, I wanted to make the jump… after I talked a little bit with Hippie Lady and then a few others who have their blogs posted on WordPress.  I didn’t decide to go this way very easily though!  It took me a lot of going back and forth.  Because I didn’t give WordPress a lot of time.  My first blog was hosted for me on WordPress (back before I had any kind of domain name).  It was initially hosted by a lady who was nice enough to get me a small section of her wordpress.  Plus she set up all my themes for me for a little while.  But then I switched to Xanga (is that even around anymore)?  It wasn’t long before I realized that I didn’t want to be on a platform that I had to pay for every little thing.  But I wanted the control.  So I had switched to Blogger.  On occasion, I would jump over and play with WordPress… but it never stuck like I wanted it to.

One of the big aspects of this would be the amount of work it took to get into the actual transfer.  I’m not big on DSN and making sure things are mapped correctly.  But I did recently discover that Google Domains let’s you get into your settings.  Not that I understand what half of them mean.  But I was able to muddle through the naming directions.  They are suppose to map the domain correctly though.  As of when I am writing this, I’m not sure when everything will be done.  I say this because as of when I’m typing this post… I’m not really sure where my domain is pointing to.  On my phone it looks like it’s pointing toward my WordPress setup.  But on the various computers that I’m looking at, it looks like it’s set up on my Blogger setup.  The bad thing is, whatever I am posting here on my WordPress setup isn’t actually showing up on the pages that are showing my Blogger setup.  I’m hoping that it catches up soon.  I suppose that if you are on a computer and you see this on the WordPress setup, let me know!  Let me know what you see if you’re on your phone as well.  You should be able to see the difference… but if it has tiny buttons on it, that’s the WordPress.  If it doesn’t have any buttons but more a white background, that’s the Blogger.

I transferred over all my previous posts though— so you should see everything that I have posted on here.  It will be an interesting adjustment to see how I like it.  I guess if I don’t see it pointing the right way, I’ll get some support and see if they can further assist me on the mapping (because it was included).  If not, I’ll end up switching back to Blogger.  I’m hoping to avoid that though.  I’m going to give it 24 hours to see if it does the magic on it’s own… before I start asking to much.  Guess we will see what happens!
