The Hogettes go Hiking

Sorry for the lack of posts. I spent the greater part of the past week in bed on pain pills. Whoever said that they were flouncing around the house after laparascopy surgery was either full of shit or had waaaaaay better pain pills than I was given. Actually I'll fill you in later as my final appointment is tomorrow with the OBGYN to go over what the diagnostic pictures of innards look like, and to come up with a plan as to what we're going to do. I know, I know, I'm just as sick of hearing myself spew about this as you are, trust me. After spending way too many days in bed, it was time to get out!!! We took the hogettes hiking.

Please say someone is going to pick up this backpack



Rip, roaring and ready to go

My new backpack isn't half bad




Mommy and her cute little hiker




When asked, Hogette #1 said, "Summit or bust"


Along the Summit trail.....quick break for a snack. After all, we call them the Hogettes for a reason




Nance Family



Jessica did awesome. We didn't exactly make it all the way up the Summit trail as it was more than 2 miles and most of it was straight up.




Phil laughed at himself, as he felt weighed down with 60 pounds of pure Hogette. How did he ever used to slap 90 pounds on his back and take 12 teenagers out in the woods for 3 weeks straight? Oh ya, that was 10 years ago.




We decided to stop hiking when Jessica said she wanted "Lamby Pie".....poor kids was a wee bit tired.



Her first time hiking Jessica was good for a little more than 2 miles a good portion was straight up.




Tuckered out Hogettes having yet another snack before heading back home.

We had a blast and are encouraged that we can do this again

I've had three laparscopies, and all of them were quite painful. I too, know people who were up and around on the second day or so. I wanted to slap them. The recovery time is different for every person. Glad you are feeling better.

I'm sorry your lapro was such a pain (no pun intended). I guess Michelle's right. Everyone's different. I did take it easy for 2 weeks but was up walking around within 3 days. I did have excellent meds, but hardly used them. Although when I did, they were niiiiice. :)

Hopefully the worst is behind you.

Hope all is well with your innards and that your pain dimishes quickly.

Cute Hogettes!

You look so great for just having surgery. Sorry I did not warn you about the pain, especially the gas pain. There is nothing like it in the world, hence why I waited 11 years to get my last one done. I hope everything is going well for you today and the docs are able to give you some concrete answers and solutions. I have been thinking of you.
