Playing nurse.....

I don't mind so much taking care of Aaron, I can give orders to lay down, take your pills, etc really well......its just that he does a few chores around the house that I HATE to do. That's really the kicker, I HATE taking out the garbage (so Aaron does it for me, what a sweet man). I really dislike taking the garbage can & recycling to the curb (so Aaron does it for me, again a sweet man). BUT being on crutches, he can't do it. Monday is garbage day, so last night I haulded it all out, all 4, yes FOUR, tubs of recycling, and the huge garbage can. I HATE garbage day!! OK, end of vent.

Aaron is doing good, still taking pain meds, walking with the help of crutches, though Dr. Shannon says no more as of today. Sleeping lots, so much I am beginning to think he is a bear in hibernation. :) He has watched tons of movies, including all Texas Chain Saw ones......yuck is all I have to say. I hope he feels better to go back to work soon, as he is laying on my clothes folding area (our bed) and laundry is backingup something terrible!

Surgery is over........

Aaron had his knee surgery today. Orange and shaved from mid thigh to mid shin, but he did great, no reaction to the anesthesia , and he is now home and resting, drugged up, icing, and really wishes he could have a beer. But that will have to wait for 24 hours per DR's orders :)

Follow up on the 7th, so see how he is doing. Hopefully all will be great!!

Thanks for all your good thoughts today!!

Aaron's knee Part II

Well wether he likes it or not, surgery is scheduled for January 25th at noon. I am closing the daycare for the day (though not all parents are too happy about it, but my family comes first). They offered him either a local or general anestesia, he would of preferred to be totally knocked out, but is taking the general (spinal) over local. I told him that at least he was not having contractions and throwing up when they would be doing it so it should not be that hard. He agreed.

1 day prone, no activity, 1 week off work (that might kill me since I work from home), and 4 weeks on crutches. It should be a wonderfully happy month around here :) At least by soccer season he will be fine to coach, DR even said so!

Wish him luck!!
