Below are my facebook updates about hubby the last few days…

Oct 5th

Back from visiting Bill... He had to have an ultrasound done on his kidneys but they checked out fine, so just reaction from the surgery and it will work itself out in a few days... He was sitting in a chair and shaving when I got there... he called this morning to ask me to bring some tang/lemonade powder to add to his water as the hospital food all tastes yucky to him... lol... he is being such a patient with his wants/needs with the nurses... I walked with him up and down the hall; I made him go farther than they had told him to go the day before... and after getting him settled back in bed they gave him some morphine and brought his lunch... since any medicine they give him causes him to fall asleep, I left early again today... he'll call later when he wakes up though... they are saying maybe he can go home tomorrow...

Oct 6th

Cleaning the house while waiting for Bill to call... they won't let him come home til the bowels are moving... so I'm staying home today so he can concentrate, lol...

Bill just called... he didn't have a good night but this morning he has shaved and brushed his teeth... went a whole four laps walking around hallway... and the air is finally passing causing him to feel a whole lot better... so now just waiting to hear from the doctor if he can go home this afternoon...

Bill just called to tell me he'll probably be calling later to come pick him up but he doesn't know for sure but probably..........

I'm off to pick up Bill...

Oct 7th

Bill had a good night, even slept in the bed, didn't even need to be propped up... Today he has been up and about, shaving, showering, making his own breakfast, snacks, drinks and lots of resting time on the couch... No Nurse Linda needed here...

Oct 8th

Bill Update: It only hurts when he laughs... which is very fun for us...

What I've been waiting for... Bill's first sneeze! It was a doozie... Chris, Frank and I laughed... Bill laughed too... Owwwwwwwwww... lol... we're so mean...

always in love with you

Now this afternoon we have just been watching all the shows I taped all week while hubby was in the hospital… Terra Nova, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, Mike and Molly, Hawaii Five O… still to go Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, The Mentalist and Fringe… Right now we are up to Hawaii Five O…

I’m making spaghetti and meatballs for dinner… made son3 pizza for lunch… made bean soup and fried chicken yesterday… tomorrow I’ll make chicken alfredo… trying to have enough for leftovers throughout the week since I will be back to work and getting off later since I will be taking son3 to school in the morning… son2 will be picking him up…

Son1 and fiance are off to a BBQ… Son2 is watching the shows with us… and son3 is playing his video games…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that freedom is within, not without. Freedom is much misunderstood as freedom from something, as outward facing. Such freedom is illusory. Real freedom is freedom from mental sins of desire, hate, prejudice. Real freedom brings peace, grace, bliss.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that when you ask for advice, ask from those who had achieved mastery themselves. Ask advice on relationships only from friends who have deeply fulfilling relationships. Ask money advice only from those who are wealthy themselves. Ask advice on kids from your parents only if you are happy with the way you've been raised.

Happy Journaling…

glad hubby is home from the hospital and the recuperation seems to be going good; I think once the patient is home in their own bed around their own surroundings and family, they do lots better!! hoping he continues to make steady progress and gets back to his normal self so very soon!

meanwhile, take care of yourself too!
