Happy birthday Ron

Today is Ron’s birthday, and since he’s too modest to mention it on his own blog (where the comments are semi-broken anyway), you can wish him a happy day here. 🙂

I’m gonna try and spoil him as best I can.

Home

at last. Andrea was ready to go when I arrived this morning. She is now resting on the couch.

Night 3

Andrea was making more use of the TV today. And her Mom dropped off some fluffy reading material for her. She’s looking forward to coming home. It’s tough to get in a good sleep in a hospital. She did get in a few solid hours without interruption, but she is the sort who needs 8 hours in a row for it to be enough sleep. She is looking better though. Her normal complexion is coming back. She is still getting antibiotics by IV.

It is definitely going to take her a few weeks to recover.

Updated: I keep forgetting to mention that Andrea received (and appreciated) 2 items in the mail from internet friends. Thanks, on her behalf.

Next night

Andrea seems to be recovering well. Of course, I’ve never seen anyone recover from this operation before. The last time she was in she shared a room with another woman who was recouperating from one. That’s not alot to go on. We’ll have to see how things are tomorrow. Whenever she does come home, she will require TLC for a while.

Hopefully, she will be able to sleep tonight without pain medication. They had only given her 2 or 3 doses today. Tonight she was quite coherent and fresh from a shower in new hospital garb. She even asked about the internet. She has movie channels on the TV (my health insurance covers it). And she’s alone in a semi-private room.

She asked me to bring her a Tim Horton’s hot chocolate tomorrow. 🙂

Next morning

I left this morning before anyone else was out of bed. Don’t take that to mean terribly early. While she still has alot of recuperating to do, Andrea is much better today. They are not giving her demeral (I have no idea how to spell it, so I spelled it like it sounds) anymore. She was up and made a trip to the little girl’s room while I was there. She had some of her breakfast.

A few times this morning she asked me if was there when such and such happened. I guess I didn’t miss any of the hilights of the day. We will all be going over for another short visit this afternoon and I will be going over in the evening by myself. I’ll post again tonight.

PS. I’ve written down a list of everyone who has left comments which I am taking with me. We can blame the snoring on the drugs 😉
