Scenes from the Week
Our friends took the day off work last Monday to hang out with hubby before his surgery. We did a special WOD and then hung out at the pool
Surgery day. Pre and post op.
The first few days after surgery. Lots of time sleeping for hubby. Lots of time not sleeping for me 🙂 He needed meds every 2 hours!
1. Got a new water bottle! Upgraded to the 32 oz and i’m loving it.
2 & 3. Hubby is actually recovering pretty well, despite the fact that he hates being in a sling. He was off his heavy duty pain meds 2 days after surgery and we go back on Wednesday to get his stitches out.
4. Selfie love 🙂
1. Tired boy
2. I hurt my ankle on Sunday during a workout so I spent the rest of the day resting and icing it. The fact that I was able to do so poolside made it just a bit better.
3. Mexican fiesta!
