First Day Post-Op And Doing Great!

Well, last night was a night of very little rest for both Greg and I.  Lots of coming and going from the staff, lots of beeps and buzzes, and a good bit of pain for Greg.  Besides all of that, he had a good night.  I got maybe an hour and a half of sleep….in about ten minute increments, but am grateful that I could be here.  They ask for no visitors from  7-10 am, so I went back to the hotel and slept for about an hour, got a shower and something to eat.  When I got back to the hospital, Greg was sitting up in a chair.  He had even walked a few steps down the hall!!  He stayed in the chair for two hours, then back to bed.  They came in and took the catheter out of his neck…yeah for one less tube!  He has been able to have water to drink today and will get clear liquids later.  They are also planning to move him out of ICU to a regular room sometime today!  His pain continues but has been manageable with the medication.  Lots of dozing today…often drifting off in the middle of a conversation!  He’s also provided me and the kids with a few laughs with his frequent random thoughts!

Will try to update later this evening.  Thanks again for all of your prayers, thoughts and encouraging words.  I’m sorry that I can’t reply to everyone’s responses, emails, messages, etc, but I feel sure that you understand!  🙂

Trusting His Plan,

Sandra

    Yea God! I heard the words of a Building 429 song today and thought of you. You are living out this song. The song is titled, “we won’t be shaken.” The song is on their new album scheduled to release June 4. Check out “Building 429 – We won’t be shaken – night of hope” video on Facebook. Love you guys!
