It has been a long week, but the end has been better than the start.
Hubby had his surgery on Monday. It went well and the surgeon was really pleased with how it went. I had only scheduled to take off Monday. I usually only take off the day Hubby has surgery and the day he is released, as he is fine by himself in the hospital. This time, wasn't as easy as previous ones. This surgery hit me harder than previous ones. I guess because it was so major.
I kept tearing up throughout the day, which has not happened in years. Not in front of Hubby. I know that it was harder for him than me.
We are both okay now. As Hubby said when he made the decision, it is what it is. We will make the best of it.
Hubby was transferred, last night, from the hospital to an inpatient rehab center. It is almost across the street from where we live, so very convenient. He has a short rehab session today and is off tomorrow, then start into intensive rehab on Monday, to help him learn to get around and to build up his strength. The staff seems really good and caring and we expect it will be a good stay. They project 10 days to 2 weeks, but it depends on how he does.
I worked 2 days this week, then spent the evenings at the hospital. The days I took off I was there all day. I have been just exhausted, more than I thought I should feel. And I finally realized that I have a stupid sinus infection. Fortunately, my doctor's office is open on Saturdays for urgent care, so I ran down there this morning and got a shot, an antibiotic and some steroids. I should be feeling better in a few days. Thank goodness.
I will be back at work this week, but my boss is super understanding and I can take off when I need to. Plus I have about 5 weeks of vacation days left. LOL!
Hubby's birthday is tomorrow. Poor thing. But it is not the first birthday he has spent in the hospital. I will be going to spend most of the day with him. At least until he runs me off so he can watch football.
