Post-Op Day #1.....

Post-Op Day #1

My Patient is doing as well as can be expected after
her shoulder surgery yesterday.

The nerve block they gave her during surgery worked wonders.

It, combined with the pain meds every
4-6 hours, has kept her basically pain free.

She continues to be restless though.

That is the biggest problem she's had.

She only slept 2 hours after surgery yesterday.

I expected her to come home and sleep the afternoon away.

It didn't happen.

She cat napped off and on last night, never getting
into a good, deep sleep.

Needless to say, she is exhausted.

She is sleepy and tired but just can't seem to settle
down enough to actually go to sleep.

We are hoping that changes soon.

She can shower tomorrow so she is super excited about that!

=) =) =)

Tomorrow is Hayden's 5th Birthday.

This will be the first birthday he won't wake up with us.

I am trying not to focus on that.

I'm trying really hard indeed.

My Brother is getting him tomorrow afternoon, so we will see him then.

We are actually throwing him a party at our house.

We are so happy and thankful to be able to share some
time with him on his special day.

As I've said before, we are taking what we can get, whenever we can get it.

Savoring Each Moment

Love you MUCH!
