How would you feel if he hid a medical problem from YOU? So think about it and give him the news and see what he says.

I agree, Ma. Snip tell DH about your Diabetes. It's important that he know and he can help you with adjusting your diet.

Thank you Taxy and DL

I took Steve to the hospital and sat with him for 30 minutes in the waiting room. The nurse then took him to another waiting room, so I then had to leave. His surgery is booked for 9am...so he should be in there now...I am so thinking of him

Hang in there. We are all pulling for him and you. And one for him.

Thank you Kades and Addie

I have phoned the hospital a couple of times and The second time I was told he was out of surgery. He is in the first recovery room and then they will be moving him to the second recovery section.

He has to be there for awhile, so I probably can't collect him for another couple of hours, I am pleased that the surgery went well

Passed dish duty off on everybody else tonight.
Decided gaming would be more fun.

Just d/l off of Amazon Jeff Lynne's newest Cd. He's released 2 this month. Long Wave, bought The Very best Of ELO 2012. He did a great job remaking the originals they sound so much clearer/ clean on my stereo. Really like Long Wave. One of my sons did to. Enough so, that little tightwad parted with his own money and buy his own. It has a lot of oldies but goodies. Well worth the decade to get.

I have been back to the hospital and they said that Steve has to stay in overnight!

He has his own room which is great! He looked so tired and worn out the poor thing...it was quite a big operation really and he is going to have to take it easy for the first couple of weeks he has been told..and he has to have 10 days off work

He has to stay overnight with these pad coverings on his legs and a machine draining fluid I think it is, it is to stop blood clots, he has to have them on overnight and also they want to monitor him as he had quite a few gall stones in the gallbladder so the surgery took a lot longer than they expected.

I was feeding Steve water through a straw the whole time I was there...he was so thirsty and the male nurse kept coming in, he was really nice.

I left after about an hour as Steve was looking very tired and I wanted him to rest. They have given him lots of morphine...actually into his stomach and other pain killers too, I think he is going to have to do nothing but rest for a fair time!

I said I will go back tonight after I have had my tea as visiting times stop at 8pm, but he wants me to relax at home and he said he will just be sleeping on and off anyway...I will phone the hospital at about 6pm and see how he is going

It will feel weird tonight, as I have never really not had Steve home with me all night...I dont really like being home on my own at night...spooky

Kylie, you have answered my question about Steve coming home from the other thread.

I totally understand about feeling uncomfortable without him there. When Tony had to do overnight shifts at the care home, I wouldn't sleep at all. And even right now I am waiting for his call that he is on his way (it is 11:12 pm here and he finishes around 11 depending on when and where he drops off his last passenger.

Just remember that he is in good hands and that he is with you in his heart. Think about how nice it will be to get him tomorrow and look after him. It will be okay, I promise

Kylie, I am not surprised that they kept him overnight. He is going to be fine.

From a "too many times" surgical patient, sometimes it is exhausting having company when you are in pain. The patient feels like they have to entertain the visitor. When you go tomorrow, bring something to read. That way he can just drift off to sleep if he feels the need. And if you are expecting him to go home with you, then bring clothing that he can slip into with some ease. (You may have to dress him.) Preferably sweat pants that tie. A front button shirt. Not over the head. He won't want to put a belt on. The strings he can adjust for comfort. Raising his hands over his head to slip on a polo type shirt could be painful.

When you get him home, if he wants to rest, let him. If he feels like walking to the bathroom, let him. Let his body tell him what he can do and what he can't. (For the first day, you may have to help him in the bathroom.) And for his diet, the hospital will give you written instructions. they will also give you instructions for his home care.

Relax. You get to keep him as your side for ten whole days.
