Hubby was trimming the back fence line, felt cold, couldn't get warm. It's 75 and sunny... came in and I took his temp thinking he's caught the bug going around and his temp was 95... that's a BIG WARNING sign.
He watched them do the procedure, as it was on an screen that he could see. Surgery was to take an hour. It took 2 as the surgeon decided since he was in there to check a few more things that could "pop" up. Follow up in 2 wks. He comes home tomorrow. I'll take him to see his Dad on our way home.
He can't drive for a week, can only lift 5 lbs. When he starts moving around etc, if he can't talk steady while working, it's too much. Surgeon thinks when he is recovered he will actually be able to do more than he was.
Hubby cracked the joke he should have waited until the 1st when Medicare and Medigap would have paid all the bills. I told him to not worry about that right now, it will take 2 months for all the bills to run through before we get the amount we owe. I will be putting money back monthly to cover it. We do have some in a money market but it's not going to be enough.
Meantime I am trying to calm his parents and siblings, my brother, all 6 kids to just stop, he's okay, he is coming home. But we all admit it's triggered the PTSD of when my late husband died, Daughter 4 was 3 and kept asking where Daddy was.
Daughter 2 called me tonight, told me to update FB (several friends, classmates and family that aren't local) and my blog and then go to bed.
Prayers for peace
