This has been me, the last 24 hours.
I am at the beck and call of my patient.
With all the noise in the house...tvs, phones, kids...
and because it hurts really bad to yell,
he has decided to call me on my phone whenever he needs anything.
I have been busy keeping him hydrated, administering his pain meds,
changing his gauze, and helping him to walk around the house each hour.
He was only up twice in the night (about like a newborn!), but little by little he seems to be improving. And this is Curt!
Yesterday, as he went "under the knife" for his hernia surgery.
Not a pretty sight, but we are glad it is over.
I'm quite sure he will be careful not to lift anything too heavy in the future.
He does not want to risk having to do this again!
