Shell may have overdone it on his first day home. She sat up for most of the evening and ended up sick and nauseous before going to bed. After that she was able to settle down and sleep for a couple of hours. We have a set of stairs up to our bedroom which she believes she tried to take to fast. So far, today has been a good day with a bit better appetite and not as much nausea.
Before the surgery we had discussed sleeping arrangements, as we were not sure we would be able to sleep together. Shell felt if I got a body pillow and put it between us it would help. It worked, but it feels like we have another person sleeping with us! I have given the pillow the name of Bea and told Shell that Bea, may get my full attention, one of these nights or mornings. We now make jokes and references about Bea the Body Pillow.
We are back to just our family as of noon today. Uncle Mort flew home to Calgary,as well Shell's mom and dad drove back to PA. Words cannot express how we feel with regards to the help and support provided by Joe and Ione, as well as Karen,Corinne and Trent. WE LOVE YOU.
I have also expanded my home care skills to now include,temperature and blood pressure readings.
Bea's secret admirer,
