If you’re wondering how on earth a 32 year-old woman managed to do enough damage to have 5 orthopedic surgeries in a year, click HERE for my story. It’s long, but thorough, and will make so much sense once you read it. I just wanted to give you wonderful readers an update on how I am doing after this 5th and (God-willing) final surgery.
Any day is a better day when you throw in some Nutella gelato :-).
I told Dr Guanche about how badly my leg hurt the night of the surgery last time, so he maxed out the local dose of bupivacaine that he injected into the operative area before closing the incision. So far, so good when related to pain. Julio from SOS Medical hooked me up with the amazingly wonderful Vascutherm 2 machine that I’ve been using 24/7 for 45 minutes on and 15 minutes off. It is the best machine ever! No ice required, just a little bit of bottled water! The machine cools the water and has an automated timer, so all I do is velcro it on, and just lay here. Lie here? Grammar police, help me! Not a phrase I’ve ever been strong with.
Hilton has been wonderful! Everyone has been so nice and helpful! Thanks again so much Claudine for making this happen!!
Even with all of the sleeping and relaxing I’ve been doing, I’ve managed to stay pretty plugged in to my Nerium gig. It’s that easy and simple to do you guys! I have an amazing team now that I have the pleasure and privilege of working with, and I cannot wait to see them succeed!! I managed to find my old before pictures today, and make a new before and after side-by-side of 0 vs 6.5 months:
I’m not wearing makeup in either picture. In fact, the second picture is of me today. I’m completely exhausted and have glasses indentations on my nose, yet I still look better in it! I am more than pleased with this product, and love sharing it with everyone! Results can truly be life changing for people!
I got to watch this game today. We came back with a vengeance after halftime, and I thought we actually might win! Not so much. We play Virginia this weekend again followed by Duke/Carolina. It’s going to be a great weekend for college basketball!!
A friend tagged me in this picture on Instagram today, and I just love it!
And I mean, look at the pug sheets. I need these in my life. Ali is thinking “Mom, don’t even THINK about it…..”
Girl talk at the dog park with Minnie and Matti! Matti is more stylish than I am. Her closet rocks more than mine does. #jealous Ali continues to be a nudist.
What Mom? So I like “au natural” what’re you gonna do about it?? I’m too cute for you to care. #truestory
I just realized tonight that I have a comment on my blog, but never got an email notifying me of it. I’m going to go through and make sure I didn’t miss any comments, so if I did, my apologies!
I’m headed to do that now, and then to bed. I only have one more day here in SoCal!! I can’t wait to see my baby Friday!!! Have an awesome rest of your day guys, and I’ll ttys!!
