My My, I am finally feeling a bit more awake this evening. I slept a lot today. I had a full weekend.
1 hookwire inserted
2 hospital gowns
1 call button taken away :-)
I apparently just wanted to gab with the nurses after my surgery. I would call them in to see what was going on. I wanted to know where this really nice short nurse with brown hair was. I called quite often.....So after Rick told me to stop pushing the button, I tossed it on my lap, it hit my knee and went off....yet again. The very kind nurse came in and as she pleasantly and very nicely asked me what I needed, at the same time she wrapped up the nurse call button cord and put it on the wall, out of my reach. ooops.
I was home by 2 PM with vicodin in hand. Rick stayed home from work and took care of me very well, a long with the family.
On Saturday, it was the last swimming lessons, a swim party and a sleep over. Sunday brought the rest of the sleep over and a family double birthday party. I had A LOT of help. I basically sat and did nothing while Rick and his brother took the kids to the swim park. My sister, a true blue God sent, did the sleep over until the cake was served at 10:30 PM.
I did the breakfast in the morning and my sister did the shopping for the some of the party and came over early to help. After the party, I slept and slept.
Monday, I had a 9 AM meeting and some shopping to do. Then another LOOOONG nap.
Now I feel much better. Phew!
