Ok we don't watch much in the way of television. We have Netflix but half the time that is off because we're a gamer household. Currently we are playing Borderlands 2 in the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. Its BA.
We are of the feeling that if we could pick the channels we wanted for cable we would get it but there's so much garbage we wouldn't watch its not worth the money to us right now.
We would only want like Discovery, Animal Planet, ScyFy, TNT, CNN, Disney channels, AMC ( Walking Dead) maybe like Nickelodeon and The Hub. I thought we'd want TLC but after yesterday Nay Nay! 
There is no way in  H E double hockey sticks we would be watching all the reality tv thats on like MTV and we wouldn't want 4 sports channels or 6 news channels or the Home Shopping Network (Gag me)

Anyways back to the whole WTF TLC.
Yesterday while sitting in the waiting room at the clinic they had a huge tv on one wall that was playing TLC all morning long >.<

First it was the dreaded A Baby Story there were for of those played and almost every single one ended in a C section. While I understand they are occasionally necessary this was just garbage. I had a natural 32 hour L&D with Kai. But I'll get into that more later on.

Then I went back to sit with HB during Pre Op and spoke to his surgeon, Nurse and Anesthesiologist all very nice people that put my nerves at ease.
When they took him into the OR I went back into the waiting room to twiddle my thumbs, text his Mom and call my Dad to check on Kai.
While sitting there trying to not watch the clock I looked at the TV.
At first I was confused and thought it was that stupid train wreck of a show Teen Mom but then my Mom asked me if the Mom of the teen was pregnant too. I wasn't sure but then I sh*t you not the show was called "My Teen is Pregnant and so am I."

OMFG are you serious!! Who in the HELL would want this broadcast to the world?? I wanted to reach out and slap the teen moms on the show. The parents weren't any better.
They're all worried about the innocence of their other kids but only one set of parents actually got upset with their daughter and her boyfriend.
(I have nothing against teen moms I know things happen but this show was a disaster)
The show was completely freaking stupid. A total waste and unfortunately I am sure there are a ton of people that love it.

What was even worse is that every family was from down south talk about stereotyping.
HB's surgery went swimmingly thank goodness. I feel so girly for being as worried as I was about it.
He wasn't nauseous afterwards or anything. I'm learning new nursing skills in changing his bandage and I feel like its bringing us closer in some ways.
They gave him Vicodin for the pain which is nice but it makes him a little loopy and very frisky. Can't be frisky with a broken butt.

Kai is in full Dr.Kai mode with Daddy right now. She has given him Super Man fruit snacks for what she calls "Their awesome, super healing powers" 

She put a Hello Kitty band aid where he had his IV because she says "Hello Kitty is meaner than any germies"
She is also smothering him with hugs and kisses for his "Humongous Owie"

She has also I think informed everyone that we have met while grocery shopping that Daddy's tail is broken but the Dr fixed it and Daddy has his wiggle back.

Our New look thanks to Kai

Kai informed me today as I was typing that "Our" set up was boring. So I asked her what she thought it should be dreading what I thought was going to be "Ponies! Pinkie Pie!"
I was pleasantly surprised when she exclaimed "Totoro! Can you change it to Totoro Please?"

Okey Dokey I can roll with Totoro.
I'm the one that introduced her to Totoro in the first place so who am I to argue.

I grew up with Totoro and think it conveys a good message and promotes a good imagination. I enjoy all of Miyazaki Hayao's work
So Totoro it is. She let me have creative lee way with the text color etc but she picked the picture and placement.
Who knows in a month she'll probably want me to change it again.
This week has gone by in a blur.

We've been trying to potty train Kai, HB has been running back and forth to school and is doing Amazballs (just like I knew he would.) And HB has to have surgery tomorrow morning.
I have been an absolute ball of nerves. Its a relatively easy surgery that is performed quite often. HB has cyst on his tail bone that is measuring 4inches in diameter which is pretty big. I found out from Googling it that it is pretty common occurrence in Men and Women from the age of 17 to 35 though it affects men more often.
My main worry is that they will be putting HB under to do the surgery even though everything else I read said it would be done with a local anesthetic.
I'm not concerned about the fact they're doing it different except for the fact that HB is very sensitive to anesthesia.
When they took him tonsils out 8 years ago he had a very hard time waking up. He was done with surgery at 9am but didn't even try to wake up til 9pm.

I'm sure I am just borrowing worry and just need to remain optimistic.
