Oh boy, I am a little behind on the gratitude thing.
Letsee. . . Friday, I was very grateful for the team of medical professionals at St E's who gave me such great care. They were kind, caring, and compassionate. The highlight of the day though was waking up. Even though I didn't want to think about risks to much, that one was in my mind a little. Oh, and I am grateful for Versed, which makes you forget everything that you don't want to think about or know that they are doing to you. The thought of my pasty nekkid self sprawled out on a table with a room full of people is pure horror to me, but thanks to the magic of Versed, I have no recall or memory or any of it, a beautiful thing indeed!
Saturday, Vicadin, hands down, my grateful thing. I am pretty sure I wouldn't have made it throught the day without it.
Sunday, today, I am grateful to be home and have my sweet hubby David pampering me. He isn't normally a great caregiver, but both yesterday and today he has really surprised me. He helped me change my socks yesterday. If you knew David, you would know that is huge as he is very anti-foot. But yesterday when I discovered that I couldn't bend over, he reached down and did my socks without even being asked. He slept on the couch last night too. He was afraid he would disturb me and wanted me to have all the room I needed. The couch downstairs would have probably been more comfortable, but instead, he curled up on the smaller one upstairs so he could be sure to hear me if I called. Today, as I am much more mobile, he has still taken good care of me, making me food and making sure I have me meds and water in. I am very blessed to have this man as my husband and his sweet care the last two days has reminded me of that many times over.
Tomorrow, I am scrapping! I will post a picture of something too as I am bored by all of these wordy posts. I want to make and share something so stay tuned for tomorrow!!
