And now..... an Ohilda Update!


Hey there! It's the husband again ..... awwwwww! Thought it was her, eh? Well.. it will be later on today when I set up her laptop in the bedroom. There is a yellow police tape surrounding the bed that says, " NO CHILDREN BEYOND THIS LINE!!!! ", and I have guards posted at each corner.

Seriously now.... she's home and doing fine, up and walking around every little bit here and there. Getting home was a nightmare, the house was full of kids visiting from Miami ( including our son, Tito ) plus O's family. So getting her to relax was like trying to get her to vote Democrat.... it wasn't going to happen. Thank God.

But the house cleared, and everything was fine. Now all I hear is Ohilda saying, " I'm so hot .... it's so hot in here .... I'm so hot ". I have to keep saying, " Yes honey, you are so hot, try to be a little modest will ya? Sheesh! Yes, you're beautiful already! " It's then she corrects me that she's PHYSICALLY HOT! OHHHHHHH! I get it now! So the house is a chilly 72 degrees with a fan blowing in the room.

Ohilda's going to be on later on, when the kids are napping and I move her laptop into the bedroom, and I'm going to try and figure out a way to see my New England Patriots playing ONLINE somehow. Tomorrow. Legally. SOMEHOW. LOL!!! It was nice posting to you all, I may have to do this more often! Or maybe my own blog.... hmmmm.... nahhhhhh, one blogger in the house is more than enough!!

She's OK!!!! She's OK!!!

Hi everyone! It's me, Scott!

Ohilda's surgery went without a hitch and she's doing very well ( but is very sore, for obvious reasons ). It's 11:00 pm and I just got off the phone with her to see how she was doing, and found out she's going to be walking around tomorrow, so the Nurses say. They have no idea who they are dealing with!

Ohilda has the lowest threshhold of pain of anyone I know, its not going to be a fun day tomorrow for her, OR the nurses.

We both want to thank all of you for your prayers (See? They paid off! HIS hand guided that surgery to perfection, just like HIS plan for all of us!), and ask that you continue to do so for quick healing and a return to a normal life back here in the Bombardier home. The kids and I are fine, and they all miss their Mommy!! ME TOO! *sniff*


Signed, Scott

That's pretty much how I'm feeling. I've been so crazy busy trying to make sure that everything is "perfect" before I leave to surgery tomorrow morning, that I haven't had a whole lot of time to check my mail. I am (AGAIN!) humbled and so very blessed. I've received over 25 emails, not counting your love-filled comments, that have included phone #'s for me to call, people offering help, many sharing their own experiences and of course, those rockin' prayer warriors completely submersing me in prayer. I even got a couple of emails that covered issues that are on that list of "things you really want to know but are embarrased to ask" topics. Especially with a male gynecologist. THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I received a very sweet comment from A Ladyblog. This morning I went to her site and it was so funny to read the second line of her post dated August 23. It mentioned that she was told by someone that "bloggy friends" aren't real friends! Well, you guys have proved that statement wrong!

I probably have met maybe 10 people that read my blog, but I "KNOW" a big majority of you. Not only have you shared in my life, but you've allowed me into yours. I am always humbled and honored when someone writes to me for the first time and shares that they have followed my journey since I was waiting for Kai and shared in our joy when we ended up with the double blessing of AJ, and they are still reading. Many of you offer prayers (my greatest gift to receive!) when I've asked, you've sympathized and empathized with both Anna Grace and I when we were dealing with our struggles, you've encouraged me when I've felt I couldn't go on and you've rejoiced and praised God with me when I've shared the many miracles He has created in my life. You truly are pillars of support. So, tonight I think I will have a glass of wine as a finale before the "you-can't-eat-or-drink-anything-after-midnight" routine and toast to my "bloggy friends".

Thank you Jesus for your precious children on earth who live out Christ in everything they do. YOU are His hands and feet and I praise His Holy Name for allowing me the blessing of knowing you.

It's me again. Asking for Prayers.

I've been pondering for the last week if this is something I should share publicly, for all to know. Well, I decided that if for my kids I could ask for prayers when it came to things like this, why not ask for myself.

So again, here I am calling on all prayer warriors. In two days (Wednesday the 27th) I will be going in for surgery. A hysterectomy to be exact. Not due to anything life threatening, but something I've been putting off that needs to be done. I shall be in the hospital for 4 days and 3 nights, which means leaving my kiddos alone again. This time will be easier for them because Daddy will be home at night, but none-the-less, it will be tough.

I understand it's one of the most routine surgeries performed and that the recoup is about 6 weeks No lifiting for at least 4 of those weeks!! That will be my most difficult task with 3 toddlers at home. My Mom, again, will be here the first week to pick up the slack and I am so darn blessed to have her. She is amazing!

Dear friends, I ask that you please keep me in your prayers that all go well with the surgery. Scott said after one of my morbid comments this week "If you die in surgery, I will KILL you!" heh! Also, please pray that my recovery be a quick one. It wasn't really until this weekend that I realized how much I truly do around here and my family needs me, so I need to be back into the swing of things ASAP.

Lord Jesus, YOU are in control of everything. I have faith and strongly believe that You will be at my side guiding the surgeon's hands and I thank You now for my fast recovery.

I also thank all of you, my faithful friends for keeping me in your prayers. I will keep you posted, since I think my laptop and myself will once again become close friends. God bless.

PS If anyone that's gone through the surgery wants to share or has any tips or comments, please feel free to email me.
