Wow, what a week it has been here in our household. As those of you who follow my blog already know, Nathan had his gallbladder taken out on Tuesday. Let me just start by saying that I hope I never have to go through that, because I don’t think I would survive it. I’m too big of a baby!! So I stayed home all week taking care of him. This included waking up every 4 hours throughout the night the first few nights to give him his pain medication. And of course this was not an easy take the pill and go back to sleep deal. No, he had to eat something when he took the pill to keep the nausea at bay. So it was about a 30 minute deal every time. It wasn’t the end of the world, but I sure was glad to get a full night’s sleep on Friday night.
Needless to say, I haven’t gotten very much reading done this week. He has needed help getting up and down, to the bathroom and back, and the first night he couldn’t even lift his arm to feed himself. Apparently when you have your gallbladder taken out laparoscopically, they pump you full of gas to expand things so they can see and this gas will eventually travel up your arm and settle in your shoulder, causing quite a bit of shoulder pain. So he had to deal with that and his stomach area where the actual incisions were made.
Like I said, it’s been a fun week 🙂 Here’s to hoping next week is better! He thinks he’s going to be able to go into work, but I highly doubt that. However, I can’t stay home another week, so at least he’s at a spot in his recovery where he doesn’t need 24/7 care.
So here’s what (little) happened here on the blog this week:
And I posted one review:
