Prickly Pear

During the week and half recovery Steven went through after surgery, no shaving happened. Thus Bearded Steven was created:

Stay tuned for Goatee Steven, after these brief messages from our sponsor.....

In the span of exactly one week, I have three weddings and a funeral to go to. Isn't that a movie?

My dear aunt Carolyn died of cancer last week. I think she was 38. I hate, hate, HATE cancer. It seems to want to take or ruin the lives of everyone I know. I can't imagine losing my spouse and raising three kids on my own. It's devastating. I pray for my uncle and my three cousins that they will stay strong and be okay.

The past week I've been nursing a major cough/cold(ANOTHER ONE, sheesh) while trying to nurse Steven back to health from his surgery. Not fun. The cold, that is. Steven had his deviated septum repaired and at the same time his tonsils and adnoids removed. Bloody mucus-y grossness, but I handled it well, all things considered. Plus Steven is kind of entertaining while doped up on percocet :)

Oh, random tip: if you're congested (sinuses) and can't sleep because of gunk & drainage going down your throat (which is me the past 6 days), sleep with two or three pillows propping your head up. It keeps your nose from stuffing up and your throat clear so you can actually breathe and get some decent sleep with a cold.

Speaking of a cold, my medicine is kicking in and making me sleepy. I've got loads of pictures to upload (I found my missing camera!) and will get those up asap.
