Fred was dismissed from the hospital yesterday afternoon. He's doing well enough that he didn't need to go to a rehab facility, he'll just have some home health care and physical therapy to aid in his recuperation.
Since, I'm not a good nurse...I tend to hover and ask too many questions...I came back here to check emails, etc. and thought I'd post a short message on here.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers! Throughout the whole emergency room, surgery and hospital stay I felt a deep sense of peace and knew that everything was going to be okay. I know it was because of all the prayers going up for both of us!
Since he's going to be home bound for a couple of months, I should be able to get back into making some cards. If I'm back here I won't be asking him "what do you want?" "Do you want some coffee" "Do you need to get up" etc. etc. LOL! He can always yell at me if he needs me to do something and the activity will be good for him if he gets it himself.
This is just going to be a setback of a couple of months. His injuries could have been so much worse! Probably my biggest challenge is going to be finding things to keep him occupied. This time of the year he's usually outside working in the yard, etc. But, he has learned how to use Facebook and goes online sometimes with his laptop so that will give him a good thing to occupy his time.
Thanks again to all of you!
