Going Home Photos

We came home yesterday and it is taking some time to get used to being immobile. We are still doing little bits of school here and there - nothing major, I'm too full of medication for that. Just alphabet things with the younger two and keeping up with abacus homework for the oldest.

Here are some more (blurry) pics of the baby and one of the staples that they removed, can you tell that I was bored? It's funny because I used the point and shoot camera for these so they shouldn't be blurry but they are.

I started off with Demerol, then the epidural, morphine, Percocet, and now Oxycodone. Medication perhaps? LOL. I only have a limited amount and so far, I seem to be naturally weaning myself, Masha'ALLAH. I was so scared during the cesarean all I could do was make du'a. I could feel every pull and tug and cut but without the pain of course. I was freezing cold and shaking and felt like I had so much pressure on my chest. My shoulders and neck hurt afterward and I needed a massage and a heat pack. My last birth was natural so this was certainly a test and SubhanALLAH what a test it was!

Salaam Sis,

Mabrook! I also had emergency c-sec with both of mine. Allah is indeed in control of everything. Sis, try to rest inshaAllah. Take it easy and just enjoy spending a few weeks with all the kids doing nothing! I also forced myself to continue homeschooling after Z was born and it was too much. Gave myself a lot of time to recover. Also, if you don't mind me asking where are you from...the mix of your kids. Its just that one of your children looks just like my daughter. LOL!

Wsm,

As salaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatuLLAHI wa barakatuhu, Sis.

I think overall, things won't get back to normal for a while around here - especially since Eid just passed!

My husband's parents are from Hyderabad, India and they came to Canada in the seventies. I am African American, born in Texas, grew up overseas, (Army kid) and mostly in Virginia.

Take care,

MashaAllah may she always be the coolness of your eyes. May Allah SWT be pleased with her in this life and the next. Gorgeous little baby!
Sorry for the ignorance but what were those staples for??

Wa 'alaikum as salaam,

JazakILLAH Khayrin for your well wishes.

Those staples were holding my belly together - SubhanALLAH, can you believe that?!

Dropped in from another blog and am having such a nice 'visit'. Mabruk on the birth of Khadijah - may she be a pious Muslimah who is a joy to her parents and the ummah ameen. I am a homeschooler too and my younger daughter is also Khadeeja :)

Welcome to the blog and JazakILLAH Khairin for the du'a.

May all your efforts to homeschool your children be rewarded (AMEEN).

Drop by any time - although lately there's not much excitement, lol.

Take care,
