Jeff had surgery on Friday night, so I spent the majority of my night in the OR waiting room, reading a really good book, and then in his recovery room. Then Saturday morning I went over to his house and played with the boys and watched some Spiderman cartoons, and packed the car, and then I rode with Jeff's mama to take the boys back to their mom. We spent the night halfway there, at Jeff's brothers house, and watched Ratatouille with the twins' little cousin Libby. Sunday morning we got Dunkin Donuts and went the rest of the way to meet their mom. Then we drove back the 5+ hours and got back around 7:30. I got Jeff some dinner, and helped make his foot more comfy, and then we watched "Free Willy." (Which is quite good if you don't remember!)
So that's that. Easy peasy, sort of. Jeff's still not feeling good at all. His foot is in a lot of pain, and the pain meds don't seem to be offering much relief. He already had to go back on Saturday and get them to re-wrap it, because it just wasn't quite right, and was making it all worse. He has to take off work and be laying down with his foot propped up for two full weeks! And then for two weeks after that, he still can't walk or put any pressure on it. And then it will be another month or two before he can run or ride a bike or anything like that... :( Holy moly. This is a big deal folks. He's usually so active and just going all the time, so this will be a huge adjustment for him. Pray for his healing and recovery, but also for his sanity!
|Friday night - reading "Room" and waiting on this pitiful guy to wake up more from his anesthesia.|
|Saturday & Sunday - traveling with these precious little sillies.|
For tomorrow, I've got a fun post planned all about Goodbye's to 2012 and Hello's to 2013. That one should be a bit more exciting than this one, or at least more interesting to read! Sorry there's not much else happening here today...
However, I would like to say Welcome to quite a few new followers that joined over the weekend! I'm so glad to have you here! Won't you take of your shoes and stay a while? :) And make sure you say Hi, so that I can say hi back to you! Love to all my followers though - new and "old." I'm so glad all of you are here!
Happy New Year's Eve my friends!!
