AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY. . .
Wellllll . . . I didn't end up going to the doctor. Since my surgery, I have had to sleep in the pink bedroom, because our bed is too high for me to get in and out of comfortably. And since the girls are staying here for a few days, I had Cate sleep in the pink room, Abby in the Pirate room, and I took the couch. I noticed that throughout the night, if I turned my head even a little to the right, I felt a little dizzy. Anyhoo, yesterday, when I woke up I stood up and the room started spinning like crazy!. I stumbled across to the recliner, ending up smashing my hand into the seat of the chair (trying to catch myself and get my balance), and ramming my head into the upright part where your back usually rests. I am so glad no one saw me. I had to call for Lon to help me up and into our room, where I proceeded to "spin", vomit, and sit on the toilet. Needless to say, I spent almost all day in bed lying flat to keep from spinning, puking, and pooping. Since I slept so much yesterday, I had a heck of a time getting any sleep last night. It was a lot of just waiting for morning to come.
Since I was stuck in bed, I didn't get to do anything with the girls, but they were very good and found things to do. Sorry, girls!
If anyone is needing to check on Tina's situation, she put a comment on yesterday's blog telling a little bit about how her Monday went with her surgery. Again, here is another Steel Magnolia woman who can tough through some pretty major stuff. Hang in there, Tina. It's good to know Kale and the kids will be there for help and support.
Dad's evaluation with the nursing home people went very well yesterday. However when they finished with him, he declared he was NOT going to any nursing home. Sigh. It's gotten to the point that there is not other choice, but still it is going to be a challenge to get him where he is safe and well fed, and looked after 24/7.The place we found is one of the very best ones - they stress stimulating the brain and having all kinds of projects and outtings for their people. There are several retired farmers there, which is super good.
Well, I guess I had better get ready for my appointment this morning. I KNOW those stinking drains are coming out today, because this is officially the 4th stinking week since surgery, and I can't go any stinking longer because of the risk of infection setting in. I have been very lucky that the tubes haven't caused anything like that.
But if they still don't want to take them out, (wait for it . . . ) I'M GONNA JERK THEM OUT MYSELF!
I'll bet every woman reading this is thinking OWWWEEEE! at the idea of that. Just kiddin'.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
