Pas is right, the experience went smoothly, gently, and with exceptional care. Pas went almost directly to the computer room upon returning home. He wanted us to complete the pharmacy errands before getting home from the hospital commute, as well as another pharmacy for other comfy's, AND then to check on the jeep since we had to take it to the repair shop the day we were to drive it to hospital campus. (gas tank was leaking onto concrete floor of shop)
Last night was a challenge between midnight - 1AM, our bed is very high from the floor, he got in for bedtime okay, but getting him out yet another. After numerous efforts & ideas, we got him to where I could lift his shoulders, push pillows under and support him against my knees, we raised him to sitting position with feet supported by the kitchen step ladder....... and he could step down to a standing position.
So, this morning he was ready to go shopping for a rental hospital bed (then opted out that idea),
then we went to 2 furniture shops to test recliners (nothing seemed a suitable fit), so back home to plan C. He likes the sofa with his legs supported by a pillow stack. So, we've got to find him his most comfy set up. We were both very tired (I've had 2 nights of insomnia), rested in different rooms and called each other by cell phone if we needed to chat. The cat Yogi likes to have Pasayten Pete back home. Others call him Ray, he taught me to call him Pete 4 years ago when we first dated. November will be our 4th year wedding anniversary.
He's looking calm, good color and spirits, has progressed to jello, pudding, & soups, lots of water, and juices. The Dr. also mentioned that his particular appendage rose to the occasion celebrating the finishing aspects of surgical process, i.e., The nerves appear have withstood the trauma okay. Pete chuckled at that bit of info!
Bye for now, I've fed the horses, now time for dinner prep,
