UC wife: Thank you for all the advice! They took his morphine PCA pump today and so far the pain pills have kept his pain under control, only needed morphine once for breakthrough pain. I had him up walking twice and helped him sit in a chair for 15 min (all he could stand). He tried to start a fever last night but all the moving around today got that back down. His backside is giving him the most pain now :( We had an awful time the first night of his surgery with the unit we were on and the nursing staff but since we got his room moved to this floor everything has been wonderful. He is being treated soooo well and I am actually getting good rest on the recliner-bed! He told me today, "I don't know what I'd do without you, honey". Ya know, I feel the same way about
him! That's what the preacher meant by "in sickness and in health".
