Chris and I got through the night, though it was kind of a long one. For one thing, she’s having a hard time keeping her pain pills down, because of nausea, even though she’s eating before the pills. Right now, our main focus is on her getting two pills down every four hours.
She’s of course having a hard time sleeping because of the wonderful position she must sleep in. It’s kind of funny, but they want ice on the surgical area 24/7, and yet there’s a bandage over the surgery site that’s so thick that she get’s no benefit from the ice.
Tomorrow, I’ll be removing the bandages and if all looks good, replacing them with band aides and then the hope is that she’ll get some relief from the ice actually doing it’s job.
All in all, she’s doing really well overall. She really is a tough lady and she’s somehow managing to keep her spirits up, something that I don’t know if I could do if the situation was reversed. She apologizes whenever she needs help even though I tell her that’s not necessary.
I really think tomorrow is going to be a better day than today once we get those bandages off. I’ll have to refit the sling after that but hey, if I could figure out all of the straps for my CPAP mask, I think I can figure this out as well.
I’ll continue to keep you posted. Thanks for all of the positive thoughts and prayers as we continue on this rather new journey!
I hope you all have a wonderful smoke free day!
ONWARD TO FREEDOM!!!
