We have not been good bloggers in awhile. Mom loves to blog, but blogging has taken a back seat to our life right now and Mom can't seem to find the steering wheel to get back on the blogging road. We wanted you to know that we read your blogs, but haven't hardly commented, and barely got one done for a few weeks. Maybe it will get better now....................
Now Dad has had his arm surgery. This week has been crazy.....crazy........CrAzY. We made it though, we are strong. Dads surgery lasted about 3 hours, and then he was in recovery for about an hour and then they crammed him and his big arm/sling into the tiny clown car. Mom says PRAISE BE for nerve blocks cos they made it home and it was a long drive and it didn't wear off until 1:30 in the morning. We wish they would have kept him for a few days but the medical system has changed their ways.
So Dad is learning to sleep in the recliner, and Mom is learning to have his pain pills as soon as he needs them. We also see how people can learn to LOVE pain pills. Dad only has enough for a few weeks and after that hopefully regular over the counter stuff will control it. He has five places on his shoulder where they went in to fix stuff, and then an incision down his bicep. He is handling it pretty good. The doc said it was worse then they first thought. This happened when he broke his back.
Mom is tired. Even after she sleeps she is tired. It has been a long time since Dad first got hurt, it has been catching up to her, along with Grandma and over life stuff.
BUT in all the crazy of this week, and stress of this week, we now have HER.
So even though the beginning of the week was tough, the end of the week was blessed. That's what keeps us going through the tough times, are the blessed ones.
We will keep on trying to blog more.
