Quick Post Surgery Update

We are home! Michael had hoped to come home yesterday afternoon...but the big gun pain killers make him sick....so we spent a night in the hospital to work on pain control and nausea control. 

He's WAY better on Day 2 than he was on Day 2 after surgery in March.   I've been thankful friends are giving kids rides to places they need to be. We'd thought we'd put them in a taxi. To be clear, this is NOT because of my driving history...this is because Michael needs me to be here with him and I don't want to leave him alone with kids until I'm sure the pain and nausea are things of the past. Sometimes you need a wife more than a son or daughter. 

We  had a good Skype with Jared this afternoon. Kids - be aware Dad is home and down for a couple of weeks....it would be a good time to catch him on Skype. ::grin:: ::hint:: 

Things I'm thinking:

It is a blessing to be married to a man who lives with integrity. What he is in the good times; he is in the bad times. I love that. 

I loved getting to know the others in our multi-patient room....and it was fun to be there as Michael prayed for them as we left.  I do love our life. 

Choosing Joy!
