I thought I’d give you a short update on Rich’s surgical recovery. He took his first shower today and is doing amazingly well. I slept in yesterday (by accident), and he made his own breakfast and put his pills together to take. That doesn’t sound like much, but they gave him eight prescriptions, so they are hard to keep track of…I made a big chart and if I didn’t have that, I’d be lost.
Rich hasn’t had a pain level over two since he’s been home, which blows me away, but then again, we’ve kept the ice pack on it and am changing it every two hours, plus giving him pain medication every four hours. I want to make sure he gets through this first week with minimal pain, as, for me, that’s always been the toughest part.
I’m spoiling him with Mountain Dew and bacon, and friends have been stopping by and dropping off meals, treats, and desserts, so he’s doing well. I can’t tell you how blessed we are to have such wonderful friends, and if you are one of them, words can’t express how much we appreciate you.
