What a week.
On Wednesday, Axel and I strolled to the Mall of America to meet Grandma for some birthday shopping. Upon settling down to lunch, we received a call that Tyler (previously posted in a super hot photo) had been in an incident involving a dock, some water, a fall and parts of your anatomy that should never be seen outside of the skin.
What we weren't informed of at the time, was that what would follow would equal 5 hours of nerve rebuilding surgery, 2 nights in the hospital and a sleep-over for Axel and I with no clothes or gear.
Waking up on Thursday morning after surgery #1 and heading into surgery #2, I knew it would be a long day at the hospital. I frantically dug through my moms makeup drawer for any specimen of left-over or expired makeup. She had taken her entire stash with her and I was left with decades-old face powder, dry mascara and some lip-gloss.
Chasing a toddler in an O.R. waiting room leaves much to be desired, but the biggest battle was the ridiculous lip-gloss that I had applied in order to look presentable in 2 day old clothes and a 3 day old hairdo. Every time I bent over to save Axel from impending doom, my hair would stick to my lips. Aahhhhhhh. That's what I get.
Tyler is still recovering and the movement in his right hand will take months to rebuild. Sadly, his soccer and triathlon seasons are over. Please keep Ty in your thoughts, he is a very important part of our family.
My advice for today would be this: life has too many battles already, don't apply additional ones to your face; just say NO to lip-gloss. (Unless you're bald.)
