Well, its has been a long and trying week.. Preparing for Christmas in and of its self some how is stressful. But add to that a very sick husband (who is a bit grinchy to start with) put him in the hospital and do major surgery on him, and the Stress level goes up about a million times! and talk about grinchy.. or not.. lets not talk about it.. but ok.. let me just say...hes MISERABLE. well of course he is.. he has a colostomy. temporary or not.. it is a huge ordeal. my poor baby.. Ive shed enough tears this week for the next ten years, and I am not really one to cry! I feel so bad for him.
So.. today is the day that the doctor said he could most likely come home. the nurses in ICU say, its early.. and that its not normal to let someone who has gone through this to come home yet. I say.. (just between you and me) He is not ready to come home. I dont know what I will do with him here. Dont get me wrong. I want him home. but Im very concerned about his comfort and he is sooo irritable, he is going to be a bear to live with. every sound or movement in the house is going to bug him. we have a water bed, and he is going to have a hard time sleeping there, in fact, I'm not sure he should even try to..
Well.. the good news is that with each day, he should get a little better.
Oh yes, and its Christmas eve. praise god from whom all blessings flow! My husband is strong and will recover, and this is temporary.. It could have been so much worse, and we could have even lost him if things had progressed much further. We will all be together tonight. not in the way we usually spend Christmas eve, but as a family. (sitting still and quiet, so as not to upset the bear! HA!) Oh gosh..
hmmmm.... keep us in your prayers..
and I really do appreciate all of you who stop by and those of you who leave me messages and I wish you all a very Blessed Christmas..
